Jumping Dolphin - Tutorial

Jumping Dolphin - Tutorial & Freebie Frame

 

Hi All

Hope your having a great day

well to get straight into things

I have made a new Frame as a freebie



If you like my creations please share a preview and a link to my blog

do not share any other way thank you

drop shadow on frame is for preview purposes


Also here is the promised tutorial for the Jumping Dolphin
I've given it a try at writing out quickly what is needed to be done to add

shimmer and sparkle but I'm still learning this myself and haven't really thought

how to write it for tutorials. So I apologise up front if it's confusing.

 

So here are the results of my tags one without shimmer and sparkle



and one with shimmer and sparkle



Here is the tutorial

Thanks for trying

have a great day

Hugs Michelle

I try to give credit where credit is due however due to the amount of graphics and tubes I receive I do not always know who has created them. If they are yours or you know who’s they are and you want credit please let me know or if they are yours and you wish me to remove them a polite note is all it takes.


Supplies provided here http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=9a3332bb218e0ec091b20cc0d07ba4d2f072ca2887edacdc


Frame can be gotten here http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=9a3332bb218e0ec0ab1eab3e9fa335cad5f01a39d4fd0898


Only supply not provided is photo I took you will need an ocean scene


Ok first let’s make our frame


Open all images in psp


Open a new 600x600 transparent image


Flood fill the image with a dark blue I have used #38496d


Layer>new mask>from image and from drop down list select your mask invert mask data ticked


Merge group and add new raster


Select all and copy and paste into selection your ocean scene. Move the ocean scene layer beneath the mask layer


Copy and paste as new layer the seas tube add as many as you like to make lots of waves see my image


Make sure your mask layer is the top layer and merge all


Open your frame Using magic wand click inside your frame, add new raster layer and make sure is your active layer, then select your merged ocean scene and copy and paste into selection


Save now.


Open a new 850x850 transparent image and copy and paste as new layer your ocean scene background


Using your Pick tool with perspective now shift and left mouse to move the left corner up and then do the same with the bottom left corner down and till frame has skewed.  Do this to the point that makes you happy and add a drop shadow


I used V&H 3, opacity 50, blur 5


See image below on blank frame


 

Now open your dolphin tube and copy and paste as new layer


Image>resize image to 80% and place near front of frame in the wave area


Add drop shadow as before


Now copy and paste a new layer more seas tubes to make waves around the tail of dolphin and spilling over the frame see image for placement


You will need to had a few waves under the frame layer as well or will not look right but basically play till you get what you like.


Image resize add your watermark and copyright information. Don’t forget to sharpen once.


Let’s add the sparkle and noise


Adding Sparkle and noise animation I’ve never written tutorials for this before so here goes


Once you have saved your tag as a Jpg Duplicate it 3 times


Find the waves you want to outline I have outlined around the tail and some of the waves whites


Using freehand tool with point to point mark out areas you want to add sparkle


See image below for idea

 

Do this for all areas where you wish to add noise


When all marked out adjust>add noise on your very top layer at 30


Highlight middle layer add noise 20


Bottom layer add noise 10


Select none now add sparkle on each layer


Starting with size 30 sparkle add a couple on top layer, middle layer and bottom layer


Add size 20 sparkle on top layer, middle layer, and bottom layer


And then finally add size 10 sparkle on top layer, middle layer and bottom layer


Make sure they are random then


Save as psp animation shop


Open animation shop and find your image you just saved


When it opens will have ready all you need to do is check settings in the optimisation window


Animated gif file checked, replace current animation optimized version, click next and then in customise


Colours 255 colours, optimized median cut checked, error diffusion checked,


Click on partial transparency


Convert pixel less than 1, blend with this colour white


Change frame speed to what you want and save


Hope you enjoy the tutorial and thank you for trying


Hugs Michelle
