This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of FourXsDesigns
You must purchase a license to use her tubes and can do so HERE
This has 12 layers
6 close ups, 6 full body

Change the blend mode to Darker Color
Lower the Opacity to 70%

Add a new layer above “Grey Wavey”
Select the Wave
Make a gradient similar to mine:

On the new layer drag out the gradient
(I went from the top left of the wave to the bottom right corner of it)
Add a new layer below this new red white and blue wave
Select → Modify → Expand, by 3
Add the gradient to this new layer again, only drag it out in reverse
Filter → Noise → Add Noise
Gaussian, 12.5%, Monochromatic

Using the magic wand tool go to your tube
On the close up select the right bikini cup with the stars
Copy it
And then paste it into your canvas

Filter → MuRa's Meitser → Copies
Wallpaper (rotate)

Change the blend mode to soft light

Select the Black Wavey
Go to the original layer with MuRa's Meister'd
Copy and Paste
Filter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X
Pattern Offset
Change the blend mode to soft light
On the bottom one add an outer Glow

Add your full body tube in between these two layers
Filter → MuRa's Meister's → Copies
Change the number to 7
Erase any of the tubes that are outside the wave
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the opacity to 50%

Add some wordart if you'd like
I did American Pride -

Add your tube
Resize and Reposition as you'd like
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0 px
Change the blend mode to soft light
Lower the opacity to 50%
Add a drop shadow to the bottom tube

Select the whole canvas
Add a new layer
Edit → Stroke
10 px, center, black

Add another layer
Edit → Stroke
7px, center, any color is fine
Select just it and fill with the gradient we used before
Add noise as we did before as well

Add your name

*****Most Important*****
Add your copyright information

Delete the Dots, Grey Wavey, Black Wavey & Main Background

If you don't want to animate save to your liking and you're done!

Duplicate the bottom layer 4 times
There's a total of 5 now
Hide the bottom one
Just saving in just in case I make a mistake :)

On the first one
Filter → Xenofex 2 → Constellation
With the following Settings:

Add it to the other 3 layers
Hitting random seed on each one

Lower the opacity of the layer just about these from 70% to 50%

Have the delay set to .15 and set to go forever
Have for layers in the animation window
only having one visible for each frame

Press play to watch it go

If you're happy with the result save as a .gif and you're done.

If you'd like to make an avi
I did it by merging my layers together and dragging them over and resizing to how I'd like
then readded the borders, names, copyright information

The animation is the same that I used before, only just on the black overlay border instead :)
