Is there a way I can make the dots on my blinkies be two different colors? i.e. black and red?

Good question, I'd love to know how to do this too and what it should look like.

Okay, I played around a little and made one...but there HAS to be an easier way. I made the line of dots in one color (I started with red on this one) and then used the paint bucket to change the colors of each dot one at a time. Needless to say, you have to zoom in a LOT to do that. I did the top row and one side, then duplicated them to make the bottom and other side - this is how it turned out:



But I'm still hoping someone can tell us how to make it easier.

Here's an easier way.

Make your dots as you usually would, except change the spacing between each dot. If you are going to have two different colours, your spacing will be 402% (assuming you use 201% normally), if you are going to have three different colours, your spacing will be 603% and so on... After you have one colour done, do your next colour (it will overlap your previous dots) and duplicate the layers as you normally would for each coloured dots individually (if it makes it easier, do one colour at a time, while the other is "invisible"). Now, after all of your dots are done, you'll have to figure out which dots layer goes with which in order to have more than one colour visible as a time and make it look like it's running after one another like a one-coloured blinkie. It's easier than it sounds, just play around with it and I'm sure you'll figure it out.

Yep yep...I can help you with this.



Photoshop users...download this template.

Do a color overlay layer style, same color on the "dots" and then do the same in a different color for the "red" box that is labeled layer 1. Hope that makes sense.

Will this work with PSE? I use 6... I miss the animation feature in Photoshop CS3 but I just can't afford that program right now unfortunately.

The animation feature in PSE 6 is NOT easy, it still just blinks!?

I know...elements makes it a lot harder to work with animation. okay...so you know you have your dot layer 1 and your dot layer 2...do this...

dot layer 1 - pink
dot layer 2 - blue

duplicate

dot layer 2 - pink
dot layer 1 - blue

then...merge the first set together and then merge the 2nd set together. make sense?? Hope that helps.
