Hi There!
It's me again:)
I think we'll just jump right in!
First up, have a folder in your "My Documents" ready to save your selections in.
Open both PSP and Animation Shop.
If you have the original individual frames you made the gif from in the How To Glitter Part Of A Graphic, then open those frames in PSP.
If you do not have them.  Do these steps:
1.  In animation shop, open the gif you made.
2.  Click on the first frame to highlight it, it should have blue lines all around it.
(i know that you can export frames from animation shop to PSP, however, that takes a bit of RAM and seems to take longer to do than the copy and paste method.  so this is the way i do it.)
3.  Click the copy button .
4.  Notice in your windows tool bar that all the proggies you have up are showing there:

and click on the Jasc Paint Shop Pro button.  This will bring PSP forward.
5.  Click on the Paste Button .
6.  Go to your task bar and click on the JASC Animation Shop button.
7.  Click once in the center of frame 2.  This will highlight that frame (blue lines around it).
8.  Click on the copy button.
9.  Go to the task bar and click on PSP button.
10.  Click the paste button in PSP.  Now you should have two of your frames in PSP.
11.  On your task bar, click the Animation Shop button.
12.  Click once in the center of frame 3.
13.  Click the copy button.
14 Go to the task bar and click on the PSP button.
15.  Click the paste button in PSP.
(My gif hass 3 frames.  if your gif has more frames.
you will need to continue to copy and paste till you have all the frames.)

16.  Save Your Work!  Save the frames, i am leaving them named as is and saving in psp format.

17.  Minimize all but the first frame.
18.  We do not want to ruin anything on these frames.Please make a duplicate of the first frame by holding down the "shift" key on your keyboard and then striking the "D" key once and releaseing the shift key.
19.  Minimize the original first frame.
We are now going to make the selections to work with.
Layers>New Rastar Layer.
Just like in the glittering part of a graphic tutorial we are going to zoom in on the area we want to select.
Make sure your lasso tool is set to these options:

Left click around your choice of area, and when you meet the beginning point, right click to see those marching ants!
Scroll over to another tulip..  away from your first selection.
Now!!  HOLD DOWN your 'shift key' again.  This time, keep holding it down while you left click around this tulip.  Right click to join the beginning and end points to get those marching ants, and then release the shift key.
View>Normal Viewing.
You can see i now have two tulips selected.

Selections>Save To Disk

Back to the first frame.
Layers>New Rastar Layer Choose two different tulips and following the steps above make those selections and save like before.

back to the first frame:)
Layers>New Rastar Layer.
Select that last tulip to glitter!
and save:)
You're on a roll now!  :)

Close OUT that graphic and do not save.  cuz we are gonna use the selections we just made!
(i made a rhyme...ROFL....)
Yes, i know, somethings are tedious!
but the results are awesome!!
Take a break, freshen that coffee:)
Now, on to page two...
Where we are gonna use those selections!
