You're really close, Daphne, those tags look great!   I still see some of the drops outside the black text, but for the most part, they look correct.  If you're satisfied with your results, then you're good to go .  If you'd like your results to look exactly like the tutorial results, then maybe we could meet in the chat room some day and I could walk through the tutorial steps with you.

As to creating a larger canvas with the drops, I'll try to get some instructions written for that and get it posted.

Thanks Timber,  I really dont know what I am doing wrong ... the only change I made this time was to only use the black only as the background colour and have the forground gold pattern closed..... so yes one day when you are not busy I would love to do it correctly as I really do love this tutorial... it can look so stunning with lots of different fonts..
I will look forward to your instructions on the creat a larger canvas also when you are not too busy.... as I know it is coming so close to xmas 
In saying all that I do sometimes have a problem reading as I tend to speed read and I also have a problem with being cross eyed at times ...lol   I am so enjoying all your tutorials and will get some more done asap.

Daphne, I'm going to write some text instructions (no screenshots) for how to create the layered canvas for these types of 8-frames glitter drops, and hopefully you'll be able to manage.

  1. Open PSP and AS.
  2. In AS, open the glitter drops animation.  Edit>Select All.

  3. In PSP, Edit>AS Animation as Multiple Images.
  4. File>New (whatever size you'd like, raster background, color=white).
  5. Layers>New Raster Layer (name it '1').
  6. Layers>New Raster Layer (name it '2').
  7. Layers>New Raster Layer (name it '3').
  8. Repeat this until you have 8 numbered layers.

  9. Make layer 1 the active layer.
  10. Set the foreground material to pattern.  Look through the patterns to find the first of the eight drops images and choose it.
  11. Flood Fill the canvas (layer 1) with the first drops image.
  12. Hide layer 1.

  13. Make layer 2 the active layer.
  14. Set the foreground pattern to the second of the eight drops images.
  15. Flood Fill the canvas (layer 2) with the second drops image.
  16. Hide layer 2.

  17. Repeat this process until you have filled all eight layers with the eight drops images.

  18. File>Save As (give the new layered image a name like red-silver-drops01-layers or whatever name makes sense to you).

  19. Note: If you'd like your layered canvas to be consistent with mine, then you could also add a new raster layer below layer 1 and name it 'Gold'.

And now for something really out there!

I really liked Judy's results using the gold-silver drops animation that she shared, so I wanted to give it a play.  Although I think Judy's results look great, I wasn't happy with the way the "gold" drops (which are kind of orange) looked with the gold outline on my text.  The two golds just seemed to clash no matter what font I chose.

So I took Judy's gold-silver drops (to the left) and replaced the four "gold" colors with four other colors using Animation Shop (Animation>Replace Color).  I'll share the four colors that I used in case you like my results.  The four colors that I used from light to dark are #F5EEC2, #DAD09F, #CBBB88, #BFAB79.  I picked these colors from the tbt-gold pattern.

The font I used is another awesome Kingthings Font called Gothique.  This font has holes in it that I selected, filled, glassed and colored.  I like the results because it reminds me of gemstones.  I experimented with other colors but nothing looked as good as this color, so that is why I used it.

I wanted to experiment again with an animated motion trail, so I added one using Eye Candy 4000 after having looked at Eye Candy 3 and Eye Candy 5 Impact.  If anyone knows of another filter that creates a motion trail, then please let me know.  At the apex of the motion trail I placed an animated star that I created to give the idea that the star is generating the motion trail towards the text .  I don't know if I succeeded there, but that was the idea .  Since the drops are only gold and silver, I colored them a little, but not so much as to remove all the gold, so the trail would blend in color with the "gemstones".  Normally I reduce the opacity of a motion trail but when I did, it looked so washed out, so I opted for full opacity.

If anyone is interested in any specific details, then let me know, and I can edit this post to include them.

Timber I love this!    Your animation is so cool and the colors are beautiful.  I love how your changed the gold colors in the glitter animation also.  What an imagination you have! 
You are right, the turquoise color looks like a gemstone.  This is an awesome tag.

Hi Timber , well I eventually worked out what I was not doing , as in your instructions you said "in AS, open the glitter drops animation , edit>select all.  but I did not realise I had to then "Copy" then open up in PSP and edit  AS animation as Multiple images... so I am now moving on and have made my first larger set and will have a play with it .
Could you tell me how you made your Gothic font with with coloured glass  inserts... and how did you then add it to your layers file .... I am going to keep trying until I have it all worked out...lol I am sure I will send you all nuts before  too long with all my questions..
