Drop Shadow = DS = 2,2,50,5,black
900 X 900
1.) EL. 32 - Copy and Paste = C&P -- as New Raster Layer = NRL --Place in center.
2.) With Magic Wand - click in center of frame - selection - modify - expand X6 - add NRL - and flood fill with black- move layer below frame.
3.) EL. 7 - C&P as NRL -place below frame - do NOT DS - adjust-- add remove noise - add noise -Gaussian - 45 -- monochrome Checked-- ok
4.) Tube - C&P as NRL-- place on top of frame - duplicate- blur- Gaussian X 6 - blend mode = soft light - opacity = 90% - merge down - Tag reference = TR. - duplicate- move this below frame - working on top one, erase the parts that are over the frame- EX. 1 & 2-- when happy DS bottom tube layer
5.) EL.12-Resize = R = 80% X 2 - sharpen - Unsharp mask = USM - C&P as NRL-- place on upper left corner -- DS - TR
6.) EX. 10 - C&P as NRL-- place on left - move layer below flag layer - DS -- TR
7.) EL. 13 -R = 70 % and 80% -- USM -C&P as NRL-- place on upper right corner - DS - TR
8.) EL. 2 - R = 80% USM -C&P as NRL-- place on bottom right - DS - TR
9.) EL 21 - R = 70 % USM - C&P as NRL-- place next to drink -- DS - dup. -- R = 80% - place next to other.
10.) EL. 23 - R = 60% & 80 % X 2 - USM -C&P as NRL-- place on left bottom - dup. move layer below original- MD- TR
11.) EL. 1- R = 90% - sharpen -C&P as NRL-- place on bottom right, - move layer below cupcake layer - DS - TR
12.) EL. 16 - R = 90% X 2- USM -C&P as NRL-- place next to boots - DS --Dup. = R = 80% - place on right center -- TR --free rotate = right 30
13.) EL. 17 - R = 50% - USM - C&P as NRL-- Place it lower left above the red star - free rotate -- right 30 -- DS - TR --Dup. R = 80% - mirror - place it on right side -- TR
14.) EL. 19 - R = 60% & 80% USM -- C&P as NRL-- place on center bottom -- DS -- TR
15.) EL. 26 - C&P as NRL-- place center -- DS-- move layer right above bottom layer
16.) EL. 27 - R = 60% USM --C&P as NRL-- Place on top left -- free rotate - left 60 - DS - TR - move layer to right above bottom hearts.
17.) EL. 24 - R = 60 % USM --C&P as NRL-- place left center above the boots- DS - TR
18.) EL. 4 - C&P as NRL-- put on right bottom = DS -
19.) Wic. -C&P as NRL-- place below the rocket - TR-- No need to DS.
20.) EL. 30 - R = 50% & 80 % -- USM - C&P as NRL-- place on right side of lipstick -- DS -- TR - dup. - mirror- move this one below lipstick - TR
21.) Make sure bottom layer is closed.. - Now Merge Visible all other layers -- R - 56% = 504 X 504 -- sharpen -
22.) Paper of choice - C&P as NRL-- above bottom layer-- add mask of choice and then delete mask -- and ungroup layers -- when this is done don't forget to crop -- opaque - 504 X 504
23.) open bottom layer and then merge visible all other layers-- add all CR info.. and your name.. if you don't want to animate than save this as Png.
now lets animate..
24.) Open Animation shop -- copy tag -- and then paste into animation shop as new Animation -- now you want to duplicate this layer = 4 X's = 5 frames --
25.) Open fireworks ( if you recognize this FW animation, please let me know , and I will give you credit .. thank you)
click on the 1st frame -- select all - copy
Now go to your frame ones, clicking on the 1st frame-- select all -- Propagate Paste-- and paste into selection -- your fireworks should be in all the frames-- you can keep adding more FW by just repeating - paste into selection ( make sure all frames are still active, you don't want it to have a spasm...) -- with all frames still active go to animation properties - opaque - white and with the frames still active change your frame properties to -- 20-- after viewing and your done save as GIF ,you want your animation to work.. good luck and I hope you could understand this.
