This tutorial was written by me on 16th October 2010 It assumes you have working knowledge of PSP and Animation Shop and it's tools, was written in Version 9, feel free to merge layers as when needed, unless otherwise stated

You will need:
Template101 by Toxic Desirez

tube of choice, I am using the work of Elias Chatzoudis, you will need a licence to use his work
Eye Candy impact - gradient glow
You can get my supplies
Open the template and duplicate > close the original, delete copyright layer > image canvas size 650 x 650
using your colour pick tool select 2 colours from your tube and set the gradient to background-foreground
highlight the rectangle layer > float > defloat > add a new layer and flood fill with gradient > delete the original layer
highlight the circle layer > float > defloat > add a new layer and flood fill with colour of choice > delete original layer
highlight the bats layer > adjust > brightness and contrast and move sliders until the bats go black
repeat with the wordart, dotted rectangle also
highlight the rectangle layer again > float > defloat
open tube of choice and paste as a new layer and position > invert and hit delete > duplicate > image > mirror and lower opacity to around 30 and merge the 2 tubes together
using your selection tool draw around the dotted rectangle > invert > while on the tube layer hit delete
add a small black glow to the circle and to the word art
open up the main tube and paste as a new layer and position > add drop shadow of choice
open the spider supplied and paste as a new layer and position > drop shadow
add a new layer above the background and flood fill with a colour of choice
apply the mask > merge group
add the copyrights and your mark and any text you like
merge visible your copyrights, text, and tube and then hide
merge visible all other layers
you should now only have 2 layers
hide the top layer and copy the bottom and paste into animation shop
duplicate until you have 13 frames matching the animated spider
add the animated spider to your tag
go back to psp and copy the other layer and paste into animation shop > duplicate 13 frames and add to the tag
resize if needed > find the centre frame where the spider is at the bottom and change the frame properties to around 120
view animation and save as a .gif
