DO NOT MERGE YET.
Using the crop tool, crop your tag down till the size is around 596w x 449h.
Add copyright info and text. If you're not going to animate then you're done.
If you want to animate............
Use your selection tool and draw out around the opening in the window frame.
Add new raster layer. Move this layer below the window, keeping it selected.
Effects,VDL Adrenaline,with these settings:
Amount: 100, Size Range begin: 0, Size range end: 20, Hardness : 100, Transparency: 0, Snow color: Basic Snow, Random seed: 80,okay.
Adjust, motion blur, Angle 170, strength 30, ok
Copy merged and paste as a new layer in animation shop.
Back in PSP, undo the snow effect, keeping it selected though.
Apply snow again with the same settings except change the random seed to about 120. Apply motion blur again, copy merged, paste after in animation.
Repeat again changing random seed to 140.
In animation you should have 3 layers.
