Here is the mask I used. Thank you Becky for making it!! Just right click and save as.
New Raster Layer. Flood fill this with black or any other color of choice. Select invert, delete and select none. Move this below your frame layer but do not merge it. If you are using the same frame, I brightened and cleaned it up a bit so if you so choose, here is what I did.... Select the frame layer. Go to ADJ>Brightness/Contrast and use these settings..... Bright 65 Contrast 45 and click ok. D/S your frame 2/2/45/5.00 twice.
DO THIS STEP ONLY IF YOU ARE NOT ANIMATING YOUR TAG! ANIMATION WILL BE BELOW.
Select your colored background and float, defloat it. Adj>Add noise>Uniform at 65% and Monochrome. Merge all layers, resize to your liking and sharpen.
Add your copywrites and name. You are done!
ANIMATION: This is a step by step on the animation for those new at it. If you are a pro, then you already know what to do so have fun with it!
Open Animation shop.
In PSP, Select your colored sheet layer. Ctrl A and Ctrl F> selections>defloat. Adj>Add noise>uniform 65% Monochrome ok. All of your layers should be open and visible! Select none. Go to Edit> Copy Merged.
Go to Animation shop and Paste as a new animation.
Go back to PSP and hit your Ctrl Z key twice. This makes the marching ants come back and removes the previous noise you did. Now, reapply the noise but DO NOT CHANGE THE SETTINGS! Select none. Edit>copy MERGED.
Back to animation shop and paste AFTER CURRENT FRAME.
Go back to PSP and remove and redo the noise one more time. Edit>copy Merged.
Back to animation shop and once again paste after current frame. You now have 3 frames of your tag. If you want to check your animation, just click on the little Movie Icon at the top right corner bar.
Save as a gif and you are done.
Hope you enjoyed this tut.Hugs, Lana
