Some people prefer making their Globes with Tubes
but I prefer Filters, especially the Sparkle Filter.
I have made a tutorial for Filters below.

After you have completed this tutorial you can

Now Let's Have Some Fun And Make a Globe !!
You Might Want To Print These Instructions to follow along with me.

Open PSP 5.0

1.  Open a new image with a "transparent background":
          Dome Globe = 175 x 270
          Ball Globe = 195 x 250
2.  Click on the tubes tool and choose the dome or ball globe,
          leave at 100%,and click in the very center of the new image.
          ( If you need to move it - just click on the move tool and place it
            where you want it, as long as it is centered. )

(You should have put the dome/ball globe in your tube folder in
Windows Explorer - PSP.   If not go do that now, so it will
show up as a tube tool.)  Here is a quick tip from LdyDragn.

This is what it should look like !!

Important !!

You can also add your copyright at the bottom on the
transparency area.  Save as Cpyright/dome or Cpyright/ball.
Anytime you create something from scratch, you may
copyright it, as long as you can document and date it.
Copyright Information

The copyright symbol can be found in your Word Processing
Program, just copy and paste this, if you don't have it.  ©

You can also make the copyright symbol
by typing Alt 0169 in PSP.

Now is the time to add your text on the Base of the Globe.
Click on the text button and chose a font and add your
text, click on OK, then position your text on the Base.

Now that you have your text on it, you need to :

1.  Right click on the text to get it to stop the floating.

2.  Click the magic wand and select the inner white of the globe.
( It is important to keep the ants marching during this entire tutorial. )

3.  Copy and Paste as a "New Image".

5.  Go to "Selections", "Modify", "Expand" to "1" then click OK.
6.  Open the image that you want to insert in your Globe.
7.  You may need to resize this image to fit in your Globe.
           ( Don't worry we will get rid of excess later. )
8.  Copy and paste as "New Layer" onto the Dome/Ball.
          ( not the Globe with the Base on it )
9.  Click on "Invert Selection" then Cut.
10.  Click on "Invert Selection" again, it should look like this.

Important make sure the ants are marching on your main Globe, too !!

11.  Now, Copy and Paste, onto the Globe with the Base, as a "New Selection".

12.  Position this where you want it, left click to place it.
         ( You should still have the ants marching)

It should look like this, with ants marching.

Now to add the "SPOTLIGHT"
This step is optional, but it makes
your Globe look rounded.

13.  Now go to "Image", "Plug-In Filters", Greg's Factory Output, "Spotlight".
          Filter Tutorial

14.  Use these settings: ( or whatever looks right to you )

          Dome:  143, 122, 85, 117, 182, 74 ( or approx.)
          Ball:  138, 136, 96, 165, 172, 83 (or approx.)

15.  Now make 2 more duplicates of what you just did.
         I use Shift + d to make my duplicates.

Now, Yipee, let's add the "SPARKLES"

16.  Activate the first image, you should have ants marching on Dome part

17.    Now to add the Sparkles - Go to "Image", "Plug-In Filters", VM Natural
            ( You should only see the Dome with the image in it, if you kept your
              ants marching.)

18.  Do the same to image 2 and 3 but put the Sparkles in a different area.

You can also adjust the color of the Sparkles here.

19.  Now save as img1 in "PSP Format".  Then do the same for img2 and img3.

8.  Now to test your animation, go to the box at the right, third from the end.
         It says View Animation, click on it.   If you like what you see then.

9.  Now go to File and Save As.   Give it a name and click OK.
          ( It will save it as .gif, let it stay as .gif )

10.  Leave it at High Quality and click Next.
