I got your message

but when I tried to reply this popped up
Sorry! That user has specified that they do not wish to receive emails. If you still wish to send an email to this user, please contact the administrator and they may be able to help.
my guess is that you elected not to receive messages when you sign up here... if so and you wish to change that ... you begin by clicking "user CP" located towards the top left of this page.

regarding the animation you'd like it's possible to make alright... the problem may be that it will load oddly... as a .gif animation.
At least for members with a phone connection.

the good news is that after the first visit to the site it would probably load alright ... as well as on other pages if it appeared on those also.

because the eagle would fly over and perch as the lettering appears and all becomes still it would not "loop" thats why it may look odd 1st time.. on a slow connection each frame will hang for a bit. 1st time.

I'll give it a shot here after I've finished this note.

a drawback may be file size.. prehaps not.. as you may know large graphics load slower.

ok ... well check back later and maybe I'll have something... or you can e:mail me at sidetrek@bellsouth.net

wanything like this ?

This isn't the actual animation for the page.
it's differs in 2 ways..
this one is smaller to meet RTP size requirements.
This one loops after 5 seconds.. the one for the page shouldn't.

I felt you wanted the eagle to glide in slower but this would have required many more frames which would result in much too large a file slowing page loading even more. The full sized one weighs in at 160kb already large.. but as I said after the 1st visit it should snap right open.

what you may have had in mind was another type of animation... "flash" I don't do those.

I just selected the correct option from the "User CP" menu (allowing e-mail from other members). Thank you I'n not too concerned about the file size as most of our members who are on line use Roadrunner (thanks to a sweet deal from the company). Thanks for the response.

That is phenomenal! Can the lettering on the second line be changed to read:
Casco Aerie 565
Portland, Maine

After that, do you have a bare bones tutorial that you would share? I've been reading about how these animations are ported but then realized I don't even know the format OR how to save them (if it's different from the usual File > Save routine). Maybe next year I'll volunteer to match the Aerie quota for the blood drive......370 pints. It's a less ambitious project. You get to lie down. Thank you again.

yup!

I am looking for a matching font for doing just that now...

yes saving can be done the same way... just right click on it... it should try to save as a .GIF file.... which it is.

well! still no gold

I thought I had a way to make it gold... but in the meantime I ended up with this.

good news is the file size is about half... these are full sized... one loops the other is as it would be on a webpage.

maybe tommorrow I'll find gold

About A Tutorial

I really couldn't write a tut on this as I really don't have the knowledge necessary.
A reason to animate doesn't come along very often so little is learnt..

there is a simple way to make one that I am trying to move beyond. The thing is it's probably the wrong way to learn if you intend to become skilled at it.
Just select whatever is to be animated and start a new folder for it.. name that "A" .. then make changes to it and save it again as "B" and so on.
start with just a few..
then go to image ready.. then file/import/folder as frames

the altered photos appear as frames and if you click the play button on the animation pallet you'll see a rapid animation of your work... so then you learn to fine tune.

Another thing to try with image ready is to open one of my animations...
this will appear like the above mentioned animation.

It was actually made with layers (eagles etc.) but I don't think you have conquered those yet have you ? LAYERS... once the concept gets thru allows many more possibilties in various aspects of photo editing.

I have yet to find a decent tutourial for making gold lettering..

Tutorials that might help:

Antique Gold Lettering - This probably isn't the gold color you're looking for, but hopefully you can use the process and apply a different color.

Hi Jeanie

I did find that tut on antique gold yesterday in my travels it didn't look like it led where I wanted to go although I think a big part of the solution lays with the layer style options.

that other easy to miss link you've just posted may be of interest to Wayne..

http://www.myjanee.com/tuts/animation/animation.htm

thanks though on the gold... I keep thinking I had a quick little program or plugin that spewed out gold font.. maybe today.
