To animate this tag I used a program called Animation Shop3.
I will be utilizing the image transition effect dissolve
In PSP close all the light layers , the two top star layers and merge your tag. Copy yo AS as a new animation.
Repeat paste but this time the open star layer is the spherize once layer.
Then Copy the merged tag using the spherized twice layer.
Back in PSP Now open the 80% resized light layer and copy the merged tag to AS.
Keep the twice spherzed star layer opoen then open the blast bur layer,merge the tag and copy to AS.
Next part is tricky. open the once spheriezed layer and the light layer then copy to as
Repeat copy with the rest of the light layers but change from the original star layer and spherized once. Alternating with each rotation of the light.
OK in AS click the first frame and apply image transition dissolve ,once done click the next frame and repeat this until all frames were applied with this effect.
Select all and change the speed to 10. i sped up the effect from frames 11-25 to 3. play it and see if the animation is to your liking. Save as a GIF.
Thanks for looking
