back to PSP Copy thr boat layer three times.
On the top layer apply your warp mesh and pull down the node as pictured below
this will pull the sail out alittle like the wind is blowing. on the next boat layer repeat but pull it alittle more down and out. Do alittlr at a time. Repeat with the last layer.
now using the warp brush set to Expand sized 63 click the bottom of the right sail to look like the wind expand it a alittle. repeat it again with the other layers but hold it alittlr longer. Don't go too crazy because it wont look natural unless you want cartoon ish :)
Copy the 505 resized palm leaf twice More and merge them with each of the boats. Copy each boat layer to AS as a new animation. Apply image transition effects fade at default Select all and paste on to the merged tag.
now paste your name in AS as a new animation and then paste to the merged tag ( explanation... why paste as a new animation then paste again to the merged tag? because if you paste directly to the merged tag from PSP the programs alters the size ans sharpness of the graphic.)
