So open your Animation Shop & then open  your animation of choice.

Go back to your Paint Shop Pro-
In your layers pallet, close off the following layers :
Both lightening layers
Both of your full tube layers
Halo layer
Wingswithheart layer.
Go to Edit, click Copy Special, then click Copy Merged.
Go to Animation Shop
Right click in the grey work area, then click Paste As New Animation.
Now on your keyboard, press & hold your Ctrl key, then tap your L key until you have 15 frames. To keep track of how many frames you have look at the lower right corner, & it will tell you how many frames you have.
Once you have 15 frames of your tag, press & hold your Ctrl key, then tag your A key 1 time. This will select all 15 frames.

Now on your animation frames, you want to select all of those 15 frames as well. So press your Ctrl key & tap your A key to select them all.

Now on your animation frames, right click on the first frame.
Then click Copy.

Go to your tag frames, right click in your first frame, then click Paste, then from the slide out menu click Into Selected Frames.
Now, wait until your actually see your animation graphic show up on the end of the pointer of your move. Once you see it begin to move your mouse to see where you want to place your animation. 

Once you have decided where you want your animation, left click on frame one. This will not only paste your animation to the first frame but the remaining 14 frames as well.

Now you will want to view your animation to make sure it is how you like it. To view your animation, click the 2nd button from the right at the top of your animation shop window.

If you are happy with your animation, go back to your psp. If you aren't happy with it, click your undo button & and paste your animation again.

Now back in your psp, unhide all the layers I just had you close off, & then hide all of the other layers that we already pasted over at our animation shop.
So the following layers should be the only ones visible at this time.
Both lightening layers
Both of your full tube layers
Halo layer
Wingswithheart layer.

Now go to Edit, click Copy Special, then click Copy Merged.
Go to Animation Shop
Right click on the grey area & click Paste As New Animation.
Press & hold your Ctrl key, tap your L key until you have 15 frames total.
Then press your Ctrl key & tap your A key 1 time to select all 15 frames.

Now right click in the first frame & click Copy, Then go to your tag frames that already has the animation on it. Right click in the first frame, and click Paste ,then Paste Into Selected Frames.
Now do the same thing as you did when you posted the animation, move your mouse around until the elements you are posting onto your animated tag are lined up the way you would like them.
Once you have it positioned to where it is suppose to be, then left click to place them into your tag.
If you do make a mistake, its not a big deal, just click your undo button & try it again :-)
Once you have them where you would like, click your "View Animation" button again to make sure you are happy with where you placed your animation now that your tube is on the tag. I only wanted a bit of the animation to be visible on my tag. But you can have it any way you would like it :-)

Now go back to your PSP, unhide ALL of your layers, so that you are back to your completed tag.

Activate your text tool, set your font, color & size.
The font I used is :
Whoa!
Size : 52 Pixels
Color : #c50002
Type out the name you would like on your tag.
Once I applied my name, I went to my layers pallet & right clicked on my name layer, then click Convert To Raster Layer.
Then go to Effects, click Plugins, then click Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Gradient Glow.
Set your settings as desired. Or you can use my settings below.
Click Ok.

Now apply a drop shadow to your name.

Add all of your copyright & credit information.
Font I use for my copyright/credit info :
Pixelette
Size : 13
Color : #000000 (Black)
I also add a gradient glow to my copyright/credit info so that it stands out more :-)

Now in your layers pallet, right click on your top text layer, Then click Merge, then from the slide out menu click Merge Down. (You want to merge your name, copyright & credit information into ONE layer.)
So once you have them merged as 1, go to Edit click Copy Special, then click COPY. (Not copy merged.)

Go to Animation.
Right click in the grey work area. Then click Paste As New Animation.
Then press & hold your Ctrl key & tap your L key until you have 15 layers.
Then press & hold your Ctrl key & tap your A key 1 time. To select all 15 of your frames.

Now in right click in the first frame, then click Copy.

Now go to your completed tag with animation frames, make sure all 15 frames are still selected & right click in the 1st frame. Then click Paste, then click Paste Into Selected Frame. 
Again wait for your text to show up on the end of your pointer, then move your mouse around until you are happy with where you are going to place your text.
Now left click to place your text onto your tag. 

Now view your animation again so that you can what it looks like with your entire tag being completed.

If you are happy with it, you may or may not need to crop your tag. If you do just activate your crop tool in animation shop. Crop off any access canvas that we did not use.Then double click to make it accept the crop.

Now you may or may not want or need to re-size your tag. If you do, to re-size in animation shop, press your Shift key & tap your S key 1 time. Then your re-size menu will open. 
Set to Pixels, & then type in the size you want your tag to be. (I really can't tell you what size to make your completed tag to because every ones preference is different. It also depends on where you will be using your tag & what size that forum or group allows. So go by your judgement. :-)

Once your tag is re-sized, all that is left is to save your tag as a GIF file & you have completed this tutorial!
