Type with Drop Shadows

patlong.jpg

I created the above graphics using the following instructions: "Update for Chapter 9: PhotoPaint Instructions", a.k.a. "Creating Type with a Drop Shadow in PhotoPaint 6" from "Creating Great Web Graphic" by Laurie McCanna.

Note: She was using a beta copy of Photo Paint 6 when she authored the book.

Try it out. Be sure to use a bold typeface if you want a good shadow effect. If you use your web page background graphic as your background color, then the resulting graphic would appear to float on your web page OR you can make the white (or whatever color you use) in the above logo "transparent". You could used different shades of gray or black (or other colors for that matter) for the shadow (I prefer the lighter grays most of the time.). Go to Laurie McCanna's Home Page for information about purchasing her book.

Animated GIFs: Info and Examples ...

You need at least Netscape 2.0 or Microsoft's Internet Explore 3.0 to view animated GIFs.

Get Internet Explorer from Microsoft's web site

or get Microsoft Internet Explorer from CWSApps and learn more about it: Software Review
Get Navigator from Netscape's web site

Here are some examples ...

Personalized Animated Mailbox

pat-mail.gifPre-fab from Caboodles (which apparently no longer exists) and pmailbox.gifCustom-made by me

Want to make your own animated personalized e-mail box? Here are the 4 individual GIFs that make up the animated mailbox: 1, 2, 3, and 4).

  1. copying the 4 individual GIFs that make up the animated mailbox from that website ("right clicking" on them).

  2. know how to use the "Animation Wizard" in GIF Construction Set for Windows (File to Animation Wizard) from the very start.

  3. and that you can add text using Paint Shop Pro:

bullet

File to Open the "mailbox4.gif", click on the "T" text tool, then click mailbox, select Font, Font Style, Size, Text Effects, Special Effects, type in your text in the Text dialogue box, and click OK. Place the text where you want it on the mailbox. If you want to re-do it, don't click on it, again, instead use the Edit, Undo command.

bullet

To change the text color (foreground color) double click on the foreground color box in the "Select" toolbox (via View, "Select Toolbox"). Select the color from the "256 Color Palette" box and click OK. You can sort the palette by clicking on the Sorted By drop down menu: Palette Order, Luminance, and Hue.

An animation of a virtual Multiple Personality? "Revolving door" phenomena? I got this GIF at one of the websites listed below.

An animation of Saturn and its moons - Looks like little "alter personalities" staying close to the "core personality". I got this GIF at one of the websites listed below.

 
An animation of my photos: Pat, "Sassy", "Cleopatra", and "Apollo" & "Tuffy" - filename: patspets.gif. Note: one photo overlays another until all four have loaded then it "loops" twice. I could have set it to loop more times, but didn't. This animated GIF of the photos is different than animated GIFs of graphics that are hand-drawn and manipulated using a graphics program and different than graphics generated using a graphics program. Ideally, you images should be the same size.

If you would like to see how this works, you may use my GIFs at this website, but please don't use them anywhere: they are only to demonstrate how the above website's animation feature works. Here's the URLs for the graphics used to generate "patspets.gif", above:

and, here's the URLs of the specific GIFs, in this case they are GIFs of photos:

1st is a photo of me, Pat

2nd is a photo of my golden cat, "Sassy"

3rd is a photo of my calico cat, "Cleopatra"

4th is a photo of my dogs, "Apollo" and "Tuffy"

You can animate two, three, or all four of them, in this case. You can also change the order of animation by entering them in the dialogue box in a different order. I just used gif1.gif through gif4.gif. Ideally, the photos or graphics need to be the same size.

If you scan your hand-drawn graphics, you could convert them into computer graphics, then animate them at the above website or, simply animate your computer generated graphics.
