This tutorial was written by Sharon A on March 21, 2012
For more info read my TOU

Supplies Needed
An element of your choice
Animation shop
Plugins of your choice

On this blinkie we will be adding a fade effect

Open a new transparent canvas 300x100, we will resize later
Floodfill with a color of your choice
Apply plugins for the look you want

You'll want a large font, the final size is small so you need it almost as wide as your blinkie

Use one layer for each word, align center & add any effects you want

Open your element & add any effects you want, resize it as needed

Copy & paste your background layer into animation shop
Multiply until you have at least 12 frames

Copy & paste your first word into animation shop as a new animation
Effects>Insert Image Transition
Default settings, effect fade
You'll have 11 frames

Select all
Reverse frames
Activate frame 11
Paste after current
Reverse frames

You will need to leave at least 2 plain background frames
(add more of these frames as needed)

Repeat the above steps with your element

Repeat again with your next word

Make sure you add the element after each word
Don't forget to leave 2 or more plain background frames in between each

Resize all layers to 50%

Save as gif & you're all done!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial
