I am using the beautiful artwork of © Elias Chatzoudis (4 tubes) which you need a license for and you can purchase a license at MPT

This is a short one.

Open a 600 x 600 image white
Flood fill with a colour to match your tube
Layers – load/Save – Load mask from disk and look for
your mask – invert mask unchecked – click ok

Copy and paste your frame and move it to the right hand side
of your canvas and using your magic wand click inside each frame
holding the shift key down copy and paste a tube inverting each one into a separate frame and pressing delete on your keyboard after each one then move under the frame and drop shadow 3, 3, 30, 5.

Copy and paste your main tube, drop shadow with the settings above resizing if necessary and place to the left of your canvas, type out whatever you want it to say and place between the frames and your main tube and drop shadow.

Add artists copyright and name, now if you want to leave it as it is then merge and save as a Jpeg or if you want to animate carry on.

Using your freehand selection tool mark around what you want to animate on your tube then click on adjust and add/noise uniform checked and monochrome and noise set at 70% click ok copy merged and take it into AS edit and paste as a new animation
Back in PSP and click undo then adjust add noise and change it to 75% copy merged and take it to AS and paste after current frame, back to PSP and click undo then adjust and add noise and change it to 80% then copy merged and take it to AS and again paste after current frame. Resize to 550 x 550 and view your animation if happy save as a Gif and your done.
