I have decided to give tutorial writing a try. I decided to start with something simple since I have never written one before LOL! Any resemblance to anyone else's tutorials is coincidental.
I made this banner using the awesome "Hot Hot Hot" tube by Ismael Rac
which you can purchase at his store HERE
you must have a license to use his art.
tube of choice
PaintShop Pro (I used PSP X2)
Plug ins: VisMan Instant Art - Wired
Starburst Animation by Patricia
which you can download at her blog HERE
Jasc Animation Shop3
Open a new canvas 600 x 250
flood fill white.
apply Visman Instant Art - Wired with these settings:
84, 84, 54, 54, 4, 4, 0, 74
Now paste your tube as a new layer, and resize as desired
I resized mine at 50%
Move this tube over to the left, change the blend mode to Luminance Legacy
duplicate this layer and mirror it.
Go to Layers ---> merge ---> merge visible
Paste your tube again as a new layer and resize as needed
I resized mine at 80% this time.
For the border: add a new raster layer
selections ---> select all,
selections ---> modify ---> contract 6 pixels
selections ---> invert, flood fill the selected border white
do not deselect
selections ---> modify ---> contract 2 pixels
new raster layer, flood fill this selection black
Add your copyright information and a name, and any desired text.
For the name, I used the free font Monika which you can get HERE
Now, hide the merged background layer, and merge visible the top layers.
Crop your image, snap crop rectangle to merged opaque.
Now for the animation!
Open the Starburst animation in animation shop (AS)
In PSP hide the merged top layer and unhide the merged bottom layer
copy merged and paste as a new animation in AS
paste after current frame until you have 50 frames.
(I use the keyboard shortcut and hold Ctrl + Shift + L to do this faster)
on the starburst animation select all and copy,
then on your background select all, and paste into selected frame.
View animation to make sure you have it centered correctly.
Now go back to PSP, hide the bottom merged layers and unhide the top merged layers.
Copy merged and paste as a new animation in AS.
Ctrl + Shift + L until you have 50 frames. Select all and copy.
Go to your background that you pasted the starburst on, select all and paste into selected frame
Make sure you line it up so the border is around the edges where it is supposed to be.
View animation, and if you are happy with it, save as a gif file using default settings!
I hope you enjoyed my first tut...and I hope I didn't ramble too much LOL
Any feedback is welcomed, and I would love to see your results!

Yay! I got this Liebster Blog Award from two great friends,
Thank you both so much!
Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!
The aim of the award is to bring recognition to blogs with minimal followers.
Since I have accepted the award I must pass it on to at least 3 other blogs(but not more than 5), that have inspired me and I feel deserve a bit more attention.
The rules are to say thank you on my blog to the one who passed it on to me with a link to their blog.
Pick the blogs to pass the award on to,leave a note on their blog and then list them with links to their blogs.
The blogs I choose are:
