For this to work the image should be 3 times as wide as it is tall (because PI=3.1472)

If your image is not this shape then re-size it to be so. It doesn't matter if it gets distorted because it will be even more distorted when we've finished. I chose to re-size to 300x100 to make the math easier.

1 Load the image to map into PSP and select "Image->Re-size" (SHIFT-S)

2 Resize to 300x100.

3 Cut the image into 3 equal squares (Call them L, M, R for left/middle/right)

4 Click on L and select "Edit->Copy" (CTRL-C)

5 In AS2, select "Paste->As new image" (CTRL-V)

6 Select "Paste->As new frame" (CTRL-E)

7 In PSP select R and "Edit->Copy" (CTRL-C)

8 In AS2, click on frame 2 and select "Edit->paste as new frame (CTRL-E)

9 In PSP select M and "Edit->Copy" (CTRL-C)

10 In AS2, click on frame 2 and select "Edit->paste as new frame (CTRL-E)

11 You should now have the frames L.M.R.L

12 Click on frame 1 and select "Effects->Insert Image transition" Choose "wipe" from the drop down list and a duration of 0.4 Customize as follows
[slide first frame=ticked]
[slide last frame=ticked]
[wipe direction=Horizontal/Right to left]
[Preserve Transparency=unchecked]

13 OK Customize, OK "Insert Image Transition" window

14 Click on M (Should be the frame to the right of the last selected frame)

15 Select "Effects->Insert Image Transition", Use the same settings as before (Just OK the "Insert Image Transition Window")

16 Click on R (Should be the frame to the right of the last selected frame)

17 Select "Effects->Insert Image Transition", Use the same settings as before (Just OK the "Insert Image Transition Window")

18 Delete the very last frame
If you animate this now you should see the image continually scroll left to right.

19 Select all frames (CTRL-A) and export them to PSP "File->Export Frames to PSP"

20 In PSP one of the frames will be selected.

21 Select "Image->Deformations->Circle"

22 Select "File->Close" - OK the window that pops up.

23 The next frame in your animation will become selected. Repeat step 21&22 for all frames
[A SHORTCUT: Hold down the ALT key and press in turn 'I' 'D' 'C' 'F' 'C' then OK the window that pops up. This is the shorthand method for steps 21 & 22

24 In AS2 you can now save your animated gif.
