No Scraps Animated "Spring Showers"

Spring Showers



This tutorial was written by me on March 30, 2018 using my own ideas.

Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX6.

DSB Flux_Bright Noise 

Janda Snickerdoodle Serif



DS_Drop Shadow

ANL_Add New Layer

EC_Eye Candy

GG_Gradient Glow

AS_Animation Shop

C/P_Copy and Paste

FF_Flood Fill

MCCT_Manual Color Correction Tool


*When working with templates, I use the Manual Color Correction Tool (MCCT):

Highlight template layer

Click on the MCCT

Set top box to original layer color

Set bottom box to new color

Click OK

If you want to use the same color with different shades, simply click each template layer and apply the MCCT

WITHOUT changing the bottom color.

This works great on templates with different shades of Gray and Black.*


There is a great mini-tut on how to use the MCCT by Justfi HERE


Another way to color template layers:

When working with templates, always Shift+D to duplicate, close original,

then on each layer, select with magic wand (or Select All, Float, De-float), ANL,

close/delete the original, do steps required in tutorial, select none


Try it out and see what works for you.
