Ok, here we are, now we're going to learn how to make our text glitter in this Tutorial, this is not hard, it's easy and fun! Let's go!
Ok,in PSP now we need to open the 3 glitter files that you seperated in AS. Open each one, one at a time. Blue1. Blue2. and Blue3.
Now we need to open a new image, let's make it 400x400 pixels. If we need to crop it down some, we can do that, but not until later in this tutorial.
Click the A icon, choose a font of your liking, and a size. It is completely up to you what font and size you'd like to work with. Make sure floating and Antilias is checked.Also make sure you're "Stroke and Fill" colors are white. Once you have applied your text, you'll see marching ants around it..Now you need to push Shift+D twice, this will duplicate this image twice, now go back to your original image. You need to click you're flood fill tool, it is right beside the A icon, on the left. Now you need to go to your "Material Palette" on the right of your PSP, you will see "Textures" you need to change that to Patterns, by clicking the little black arrow, patterns is the 3rd one once you do. You need to scroll up and you will see your 3 glitter frames. Click Blue1.(Or whatever you named your file) Then you need to go to your image, right click, now you will see your text with the glitter in it. Now you need to go to Selections on your tool bar, select none, and go to save your image, as Glitter1
Now, you should have two more images, with your text, you need to click on another image, click flood fill, go to "Patterns" find your file "Blue2" and right click your text, you should see your glitter in your text, selections, select none, save as Glitter2. Repeat this steps with the last text image, only changing your pattern file from blue 2, to blue 3. save as Glitter3
Congratulations, we're about done..
Now we need to go into Animation shop, we need to click on file, and then Animation wizard. We need to make sure Same size as the first image is checked, second page transparent, third page, upper left corner of frame, and with the canvas color. Fourth Page, Yes repeat the animation indefinitely, speed set to 10. On the fifth page, it is now time to click on Add Image, and find the 3 frames you did, start with Glitter1. make sure all of 3 images are loaded in the correct order, then click finish.
Now, you will see your text in 3 frames. now, you can go up to veiw, and then click animation, and see your glitter text animate.
If you'd like to crop it down, and get all of that extra background around it off of there. First you need to go to your image, and push CTRL+A this will select all of your images so you can crop them. Go to your crop tool, 4th tool on tool bar in AS. Now go to your first image, drag your mouse, until a rectangular square is around your text, click twice, and your image is now cropped.
Go up to veiw, click animation. And watch your Text glitter!
Congratulations, you have now made your text glitter. I hope this tutorial was easy for you.
