With the help of your tutorials, I was able to edit these animations to help celebrate the fact that my girlfriend is going to have a baby (We don't know whether it's gonna be a girl or a boy yet). Thanks Essex, these Tutorials are very helpful...




Oooo How adorable! *smiles*

LOL well today she asked if she could just call you the horse person! She remembers it was you who made her the horse! Kids are soo funny sometimes! Glad you liked the roses, I sent em to my mom in an email too.
The tiger one, it wouldnt let me put the tiger where I wanted it exactly in the globe, is there a way to do that, or do I have to click the spot I want first, I just wanted the tiger a little bit higher in the globe.
Oh boy, I got another thing to try, probably will be back later on!

LMAO Being a horse has it's good qualities,
With the tiger before you merge the layer you're able to move it with the Raster Deform tool just under the hand.
When you're working on the tiger layer click the raster tool,it then it will select the tiger layer and you're able to move it with the 4 cross arrows.

The great thing about the globe is once it's made and exported into picture tube it can be used over and over to make so many different pics :bigsmile:

LOL Now you tell me! Ok will have to try that and see if I can get that stubborn tiger to move his butt!

Actually she has a hard time pronouncing some "sounds" and her speech teacher said that your name is actually a good practice word for her, so she is working on it and actually gets it right now about 55% of the time, but sometimes you are still Exit Boy! LMAO

It's amazing how one good thing leads to another,
Such a coincidence that my name has the sounds that are hard to pronounce.
She's doing so well to get it right half the time.
In Essex the thing we don't pronounce is our H's lol.
