Hello! I'm Crystal, aka darkly dreaming. I'm 34 and live in the Midwestern USA. I've been back into PSP since November of 2010. Prior to that I tried PSP for about a year back in 2005 or 2006. I've just recently begun trying my hand at tutorials. If you try one of my tuts and would like to show me what you made, please email me at darklydreaming33@hotmail.com. Happy Tagging!

54) Back in PSP Edit Copy special, copy merged. Paste into Animation shop as new animation. Right click and insert frames, empty. 28, 2. You should have 29 frames now which matches the number in glitter. First, go to animation, properties and choose opaque and color of your choice for the background. Then, with all frames on both animations selected, Drag from frame 1 of simple glitter to frame 1 of the tag where you want. I did this 3 times, once for each glass.
55) Save file as an .mng.
56) To add your name, back in PSP add your name. Edit copy and paste as new animation in AS. Repeat step 54 to drag your name into the tag. Then export your .gif.
