SUPPLIES NEEDED

TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the fantastic artwork of
Elias Chatzoudis.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE. 

SCRAPKIT: Wicked Way Collab.
There are five kits in this Collab.
For this tut I'm using the one
by Pimp'd Designz.
You can find it HERE.

MASK: Mask14 by Savage SWAK.
You can snag it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Tingle Institute.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
In this tut we'll make 3 layers move.
If you don't wish to animate, just skip the steps marked *BLUE*
Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels.
Flood fill with the color of your choice.

Open pp4.
Enlarge paper to fit canvas.

Open Mask14.
You'll see three layers in Mask14.
Only move the layer called Mask
onto your siggy.
Place this on top of your paper.
With this layer highlighted
hold your CTRL key down on your keyboard
and hit your mask icon in the layer palette
at the same time.
You'll see little marching ants now.
Highlight your paper layer.
Click the mask button
(this is a square with a circle in it)
at the bottom of the layer palette.
*You should have two pictures in your paper layer now.
One of your paper and one of the mask.*
Hide your mask layer.
Highlight the paper layer.
Right click in the layer palette.
Hit Convert to Smart Object.
Right click again.
Click Rasterize Layer.
Now you can delete the gray mask layer.

I used these elements:
spider web
spider, resize to 50%
ghost
moon
cloud
bat, resize to 50%
fence
cauldron, resize to 65%
dots, resize to 50%
Rotate this 90 CCW (counter clock wise)

Open your tube.
Place to your liking.

On top of the tube
I used doodle01.

Place a drop shadow on all layers
except the ghost and mask layers.
Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color 9160a0.
Stroke: Outside, 3, Black
I also used:
Bevel & Emboss
Inner Glow
Drop Shadow

Bevel & Emboss settings:

Click OK.


Inner Glow settings:

Click Ok.

MOST IMPORTANT!!
You must now do this:
Put the artist's name, website, and your license number
of the tube you used on the siggy!!
Add your name (ie: Designed by Your Name) behind this info.
Make sure this info is legible and clearly seen.

If you don't want to animate, Save as PNG.
YOU'RE DONE!!
(If you want to maintain your layers
Always Save as PSD first.
Then you can save it as a PNG.
When doing both these steps
It is important to change the title of the tag.
Example:
When I Save as PSD,
I always name the tag what I want.
Then, when saving as a PNG,
I add the number 1 behind the name of the tag.
Like this:
Flying High, Save as PSD
Flying High1, Save as PNG
Otherwise, your PNG will overwrite your PSD
Merging your tag into one layer only.)

**TO ANIMATE**
Open your animation window.
Set the time for .2.
Click the square button, next to the trash can,
in the animation window.
This will duplicate the first animation frame.
You will now have frames 1 & 2.
Highlight frame 2 in the animation window.
Now go over to your Layer Palette.
Highlight your ghost layer.'
Move your ghost up or down to your liking.
Then highlight the dots layer.
Move this up to your liking.
Now move your tube layer
to your liking.
Where you move these three layers
is where they will stop rising or falling.
Now go back to your animation window.
Highlight frame 1.
See that icon that looks like a slanted row of squares?
Place your cursor over it.
It will say: Tweens Animation Frames.
Click it.
A new window pops up.
Use these settings:

Click OK.

You should now have eight frames of animation.
Go ahead and click Play
to see your layers float.
Ok.
Now back to animating the rest of the siggy.

Highlight frame 1 in the animation window.
Duplicate this.
The frame you just duplicated will now be frame 2.
Click on frame 2 and while holding down the mouse,
move what is now frame 2 over
past frame 8.
Let go of the mouse.
Now you have nine frames.
Go to the eighth animation frame in the animation window.
Highlight frame 8.
Hit the tween button.
Use the same settings as before.

You will now have 15 animation frames.

Click Play.
If you like what you see...

Save as PSD. Then Save for Web & Devises.

YOU'RE DONE!
I hope you had fun with this tut
and that you can use the tween technique
in other taggies you create!
HUGS!

♥Tribute to Rieka♥

To honor Rieka and all she has blessed me with, I will be leaving all my tuts that I have written with her kits on my blog. They are not coming down. Even though her kits are no longer available, the tuts I wrote using them are my tribute to her. Hopefully, they will inspire you the way Rieka inspired me. Love You, Rieka! You'll be forever in my heart.♥

About Me

Savage
Hi Ya'll! I'm Savage and I'd like to welcome you to Redneck Tuts. These are not your ordinary tuts, as they are geared toward those of us that don't have "working knowledge" of Photoshop or PSP. My tuts are all done in PS. They are designed to show you different techniques that you may not know. I hope you learn something that you can use in your creations in the future. Please, just have fun and put your own spin on these tuts. Be original and shine! Love Ya! ♥
