This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP. Any similarity to another tutorial is purely coincidental.

:Supplies Needed: 
PSP X3 but any version will work
Animation Shop
Xero-Porcelain found here
FTU Catch a Wave Freebie Add-On by Nette's Night Owl Works found here
Tube of choice I am using Elias Chatzoudis and you need a License to use his work found here
Mask of choice I am using Vix mask-07 found here
 Font of choice I am using Blue Plate Special
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15 

Let's Begin!


Open up a new image I like to use a tagger size of 460 x 460
Flood fill white
Open up the frame and right click copy, right click paste as new layer. Close off original resize and position to your liking, with your magic wand click inside the frame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 5
Google "ocean" images from online and then right click copy, right click paste as new layer and place under the frame, then go to Selections-Invert-hit delete on your keyboard-deselect, your pic should be inside the frame now
 
Open up your tube of choice and right click copy, right click paste as new layer, position her to the left like mine. Then go to Plug-ins-Xero-Porcelain and use these settings
Click ok. Now open up paper 8 and right click copy, right click paste as new layer, add your mask, invert your mask.
 
Add any other elements you want on your tag making sure you copy and paste each one as a new layer.
 
Add your name and copyright info.

Follow down to the rest of the tut to animate

:Animation Shop:
Back in PSP close off all layers except for the water pic and then right click copy merged and right click paste into AS as new animation. Then go to Effects-Insert Image Effect-Click underwater
 Click ok. You should have 8 frames, erase frame 1 for a total of 7 frames, Select All (ctrl+A) minimize for now.
 
Now go back to PSP and close off the ocean pic and open all the frames that are UNDER the ocean pic including your copyright layer, right click copy merged, and paste into AS as new animation, then right click copy, then right click paste after current frame, repeat this process until you have a total of 7 frames. Select All then open up the first animation of the ocean pic and right click copy, then on the second animation right click paste into selection. (make sure all frames are still highlighted)
 
Now go back to PSP and close off all those layers you just brought over to AS and open all the layers that are ABOVE the ocean pic, right click copy merged, then right click paste into selection.
View animation!
