At this point

Open again the Light Snow brush tip
change Size to 298 px
or other of your choise
and add some brush on your design till to have something similar to this



Merge all the layer

Now if you like you can use it so or animate it with a little snow


In this case......go ahead


10 - Open ch-snowanimation2.gif
Image - Duplicate
Close the original

Note: The ch-snowanimation2.gif file
consit of 10 layers snowed and it is already prepared from me
to use it on PS animation, for an image sizes áW:437px x H:322 px


so you have to resize your image to these settings
Image - Image Size



Width: 437px and Height: 322px
Deselect Constrain Proportion

Note: In the supplies I added also a big animation gif sized: 760x600 px
named ách-snow760x600.gif áif you like to use it in a big one.



11 - When you resized the image you have just finished creating
and drag it on your ách-snowanimation2.gif

Layer - Arrange - Send to back



Now Open the Animation palette from Window - Animation



you have to had this one



Click the play animation button and watch how the animation played
For me it's ok

Otherwise you can expand the 0,1 sec button in the bottom panel
and select 0.2 sec or other time from the fly-out menu.
Change the delay time of each frame at your wish

Note: Some people have written me this tutorial doesn't work with CS3,
in this case you can follow the explanation
of this other tutorial I wrote for basic animation.


*~*~Tut-PS-CreateAnimation*~*~

In this case you can use the psd format of the snow gif in the supplies,
and following the explanations of the CreateAnimation basic tutorial, á
you have to make 10 frames
playing with the Layer Palette and the Animation Panel
But you have to pay close attention


When you are satisfied with the result,
and all has been set up,
close the Animation Panel!

It's time to save the image!

Go up to:
File - Save for Web & Devices
with Default settings
but make sure the file format is set to gif
and save the image!

Save a copy in .psd format tooá, it might serve you for another time


Done!
