. Everyone should know how to add some sparkles to a graphic. If you have not completed the tutorial I recently wrote on installing plugins and filters. You must do that, before you can complete this tutorial. If you already have them installed, great! So let's get started!
Ok, You need to Open your Image in PSP, Now, to add sparkles using Visman, we must give this Image 3 layers. Don't panic! It's easy. In your PSP, look above you'll see "Layers" click that, click duplicate, and then click "Layers" and then click duplicate one more time. Now your graphic has 3 layers.
Now, we need to open your layer pallette. Now click the bottom layer, Now once that is highlighted, go to effects, and go down to your plug in filters, choose VM natural, choose Sparkle. Now you need to change your Random Seed settings too 70 and your max size to 50. Click ok. Then go back to your layer palette highlight the middle layer Copy. Go to effects, plug-in filters, VM Natural, Sparkle, this time your settings need to be Random seed 80, max size 60, click ok! Now, once more go to your layer palette highlight copy of copy of your Image. Go to effects, Plug-in filters, VM Natural, Sparkle. Random seed 90, max size 70. Click ok.
A little tip, always remember it's best to have at least for example if your one layer has random seed 70, it's always best on the next layers to maybe have 10 less or 10 more, or something. shouldn't all be the same..That is for example. Same with your Max size. So each layer should have a diffrent setting. You also have color settings too, you can always fiddle around with the settings until you find the setting you like, Now, let's save our graphic as PSP image in our file.
Open it up in AS(Animation Shop) click veiw, and animation. Watch it sparkle...
Congratulations, you're done!!
