Movie Star Tutorial

Click on image to see larger version

At the time I created this tutorial, all tubes, scrapkits, etc were
in working links. Sorry if the links no longer work
With scrapkits, if the link or site is missing, choose a similar scrapkit

I created this tut in PSPX14 (14) but it can be done
with any version of PSP. You need to have a good understanding of
your PSP program to do this tutorial.

You will need:
A close up tube plus a standing tube - I used tubes from GothicStarr
You need to be a registered member of PTE
to purchase her tubes, but any close up tube will do.
Mask #108 from DesignsByVabs
You will need the font called 'WM Drama1' from for the Film Strip
as well as a nice scripty font of your choice for your name
Plugin Filter:
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow

New white canvas 700x700

Open up the mask & minimise it
Copy & paste your close up tube as anew layer - you may need to resize the
tube up a little - I resized mine 110% SmartSize-all layers unchecked.
New mask layer-From Image with these settings

The close up tube now has the mask on it - Merge Group
Text Tool - WM Drama1 - size 225, Stroke 3, background colour from your tube - Foreground Black
type lower case 'e' - convert to raster layer - move so the word 'Film' is covering the bottom part of the mask

Magic Wand, click inside the F & I - copy & paste your close up tube as a new layer - move the tube over the
selected letters - Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None. Back to the word layer, Magic Wand again, click
inside the letters L & M - paste your close up tube once more, but have it mirrored first. Move into position
over the selected letters - Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None. Make top tube layer active & Merge Down
to the other tube layer, then Merge Down once more to the FILM word. Add this drop shadow

Paste your normal sized tube as a new layer, place it over the 'L' letter. Add drop shadow
We will add a light now - type in lower case 'w' size 130, stroke 3 - foreground Black, background colour from your tube
convert to raster layer - Mirror & move to top left side of film strip (see mine for placement) duplicate - Image-Flip &
move duplicated light to bottom right of film strip. Merge the 2 lights together. Effects-Plugins-Eyecandy4000,
GradientGlow with these settings -White. Merge the lights down to your standing tube.

Add your name & correct copyright.

Now the tricky bit - make the film strip layer active - Duplicate 2 times to give you 3 layers. Make original film strip layer active,

close off the eyes to the other 2 layers. Go to Effects-Illumination Effects-Sunburst with these settings
Now, make the 2nd copy active, close off the eyes on original layer & these Sunburst effects
Make top copy active, close off eyes on 2nd copy layer & these Sunburst effects

Crop Tool, crop your image - then resize to your liking, I resized mine 85% SmartSize-all layers checked.


Make the original film strip layer active, making sure the other 2 layers eyes are crossed out. Copy Merged
Now, into Animation Shop - Paste As A New Image.
Back to your PSP, make 2nd copy layer active, uncross the eys & cross out the eyes on original layer. Copy Merged
Into AS - Paste After Currant Frame.
Back into your PSP, make top copy layer active, uncross the eyes & cross out eyes on 2nd copy layer. Copy Merged.
AS - Paste After Currant Frame.
You should now have 3 frames of your image

Go to Edit-Select All, the go to Animation-Frame Properties & type in 75
Go to File & Save as a *Gif image
