I also added a drop shadow to my tube.

26. From the supplies folder open up in PSP the "LHDComplaintDeptMemo" and "Edit - Copy" then over to your main canvas and "Edit - Paste as a new layer" and move it to where you'd like.  I placed mine on the upper left side of the shutter.

NOW TO TAKE IT INTO ANIMATION SHOP

(note:  if you want a transparent background you can delete your bottom white layer before you copy merged")

30. Go back to your Animation Shop and "Edit - Paste as new animation"

31.  Go up to "Edit - Duplicate selected" then do it one more time so you have 3 frames of your tag.

32. Go back to your LHDComplaintDeptAni then"Edit - select all", then "Edit - Copy" then back to your main tag and "Edit - select all",  then "Edit - paste into selected frame" move the animation so it lines up with the top of the "bomb" wick.  You can see the outline to help you move it.  Once you feel it's in the right place click on the left side of your mouse once and it will place the animation in every frame.  If you don't line it up correctly the first time you can always "Edit - Undo" and try it again.

33.  You can now save as a gif file.

YOU ARE NOW ALL DONE
