****Most Important****

If you're happy with you're result save to your liking and you're done!

If you do want to animated...
Hide your name, copyright and white background layers and merge the others all together.
Duplicate the resulting layer 2 times so you have a total of 3.
Unhide your copyright, name and white background layers

Leave the bottom one alone

On the second one.
Filter → Render → Lens Flare
Brightness at 100%
50-300mm Zoom

Drag the little cross in the middle of the small preview to about where you'd see the flash in the bottom of the two cameras.

On the third and top one use the same filter but position the flare about where you'd see the flash for the top right camera.


Now we're going to go to our animation window.

Have your delay set to .15sec and set to repeat forever

Now add layers so that you have a total of 6 frames in your animation window

On the first frame have only the bottom layer of our three layers showing
One the second we're going to have the middle layer visible
On the next two the bottom one only again
On the 5th frame only the top layer showing
On the last frame the bottom layer again.

Press play to see your animation go

If you're happy with your results save as a .gif and you're done!
