For this tutorial you will need:-

Paint Shop Pro - I am using X5 but any version will work.

Animations - I am using 2 of Simones free animations
SimoneAni_Magic Balls 003

Its been a long time


Its been a long time since i was last online-6 months to be exacted. I had to take a break life was really getting me down and i just wanted to shut myself away which in the end i did. 
Then had problems with lappy but thats all sorted now too.
Came back to a nightmare!!. I really don't know what postimage is playing at but they have deleted all my albums meaning i am having to go through everything and reload images. No email nothing just destroy 12 folders full of tags and kit previews plus tags that are gifted to people. So angry with them, my eldest told me to send them an email to find out why they did this but at the moment am too busy sorting my blog out again.
Anyway so please bear with me while i sort out my posts on here

Please bare with me

As many of you pspers know Post image has had a problem the last couple of days. 
This has meant that most of my pictures aren't showing at the moment, but have just found out that i can upload images straight into my posts on here through my computer so i won't lose anything as long as they are on my computer.
So over the next couple of days maybe more but am being positive I will be editing all my posts and getting images uploaded from my computer. 
Please please bare with me i promise that it will all be sorted asap.
Thanks so much
