This tutorial is about downloading and using Picture frames.
CLICK HERE FOR A SITE WITH AROUND 12 PAGES OF PICTURE FRAMES

I had a problem with the first 4 pages as they wanted to load into my Photoshop and not PSP but if you only have the PSP it should be fine.

1.Choose which frame you want in your collection,then Click OPEN.
This will open the frame up in your PSP.
Once the frame has opened goto FILE..EXPORT..PICTURE FRAME
Name the frame then click SAVE



It's now saved in your frame collection.
To use the frames
1.Open up the image that you want to frame
2.Goto IMAGE..PICTURE FRAME
You'll find your new frame in your collection.
Use the drop down arrow to choose the frame you wish to use.
You'll now have tick boxes to style the pic the way you want,
Every choice you make will be seen in the preview pic.
Then click OK.



3.Now goto LAYERS..MERGE..MERGE ALL FLATTEN

Now goto IMAGE..RESIZE..If the pic needs resizing.
Then once resized goto FILE..SAVE AS and save it as a jpg

Here's my finished pic



omg........thank you so much...i wish i would have seen this earlier...

thank you essex..i love you sooo.....

The only thing I can tell you, is I had to keep clicking and undoing....I make my tolerance 18 for large things, but I lower it for smaller sections....then before I add the glitter I make sure everything I want glittered has the marching ants thing around it, cause sometimes there is a little itsy bitsy spot that doesnt have the marching ants. I will look at it in animationshop and see if I can see anything else....

Thanks Rainy.
It's because the dress has so many diffent shades of the same colour that makes it hard to select everything.
It's so much easier when the dress is all the same shade and colour

This tutorial is to make a cool underwater sea signature pic.

First open a new image 400 x 400 and make it transparent.

1.Now make the BACKGROUND and FILL PROPERTIES..White and the FOREGROUND and STROKE PROPERTIES..Blue.
Now goto the SHAPE TOOL.
It's the one under the text tool,then choose ECLIPSE from the drop down menu.

2.Now put the point of the arrow near the bottom left hand corner of the transparent paper
then draw a large oval/circle.
This is the sort of thing it should look like.



3.Now click in the FOREGROUND and STROKE PROPERTIES.
Click the GRADIENT tab,then select DUOTONE LIGHT BLUE.
The Style should be on the first one,and make the angle 0 and repeats 1.

Then select the FLOOD FILL TOOL,it's the one above the text tool.
Then left click it inside the oval shape to fill it with the colour.

4.Now goto ADJUST..BLUR..GAUSSIAN BLUR.
Make the Radius 8.
Now goto LAYERS..MERGE..MERGE VISIBLE.

5.Now goto LAYERS..NEW RASTER LAYER.
Now is when we add the sea animals.
I'm using the dolphin in the picture tube.
If you dont have a dolphin in yours you can use this pic.



To use that two dolphin pic right click on the pic,then copy the image.
then GOTO ANIMATION SHOP 3.
Paste the image as a new animation.
Then goto FILE..EXPORT FRAMES TO PAINT SHOP PRO.
Now go to the pic which is now in PSP.
Now goto FILE..EXPORT..PICTURE TUBE.
Name the tube then click OK.
The picture will now be a picture tube


6.Now click on the PICTURE TUBE TOOL.
Use the drop down arrow in the top left hand corner.
Find the picture that you're using as your picture tube.
Change the setting to make the tube smaller I'm using 30.
Then left click inside the oval to insert the picture tube
Now click on the RASTER DEFORM TOOL,It's under the hand.
Use that to move around the dolphin to the way you want it in the picture.
Then click on the MOVE TOOL to deselect.

If you want another dolphin pic inserted goto LAYERS..NEW RASTER LAYER.
Goto the picture tube,insert the second dolphin then use the raster deform tool to move it around,then click the Move tool to deselect.
If you used the picture that already had 2 dolphins no need for that second part.



7.Now goto VIEW PALETTES..LAYERS.
When you move your mouse up the left hand side you can see what the layers are.
On the dolphin layers,it'll be one or two depending on which picture tube you used,
change the OPACITY,thats next to the eye..to 80.


8.Now goto LAYERS..NEW RASTER LAYER.
Now click in the background fill properties.
At the bottom of material properties where it says HTML,Type in #256EA6
Then click OK.



9.Now click on the TEXT TOOL.
Have the create as..FLOATING,choose text and have size 36
Now type in your text,then use the MOVE TOOL to place it in the oval where you wish.
Then goto SELECT..SELECT NONE

10.Now goto VIEW ..PALETTES ..LAYERS.
Move your mouse up the left hand side just before the eyes to discover which layer has the name on it.
When you know which one it is,Right click on it,goto DUPLICATE,then left click.
Then goto LAYERS..MERGE..MERGE VISIBLE.
Then goto EDIT..COPY

11.Now open up the ANIMATION SHOP 3.
Goto EDIT..PASTE..AS NEW ANIMATION.
Goto EFFECTS..INSERT IMAGE EFFECT.



12.Set the EFFECT as UNDERWATER.
EFFECT LENTH 2.5 FRAMES PER SECOND 6.
Then click CUSTOMIZE
Then make these the settings.



13.Next..where it says WAVE..Click the down arrow,
then make the wave 2 settings this.



14.Then make this the third wave settings.
Then click OK.



15.You should now have 16 frames.
Push the left arrow on your keyboard till you get to FRAME 1.
Make sure the red and blue layer is around FRAME 1 and no other.
Then click the delete frame Red X.



15.You should now have 15 frames.
Click to view the animation,then save it.

Here's my finished picture
