I want to make the red brush stroke have glitter in it.
First you have to duplicate the brush layer 3 times. To do this, right click on the layer, and click 'duplicate layer'. Repeat so there are 3 layers.
Now you're going to add noise to the first layer. Make sure the brush is selected, not the image. Then go to Filter> Noise> Add Noise
This menu will pop up. You can play with the amount of noise you add. It's just personal preference. I only added 6 to this one. Repeat this step on all 3 layers of your brush (or whatever you want to make glittery) Make sure each layer has a different amount of noise or it won't look animated. I did 6 for the first layer, 7 for the second layer, and 8 for the third layer.
You're going to need one layer of the NON ANIMATED part of your siggy for each layer of glitter animation. In my case the non animated part is the picture. And I have 3 layers of glitter, so I will duplicate the picture 3 times. (right click, duplicate layer)
Now you'll do some merging. Click on layer of the non animated part, then hold ctrl and click on one layer of glitter. Right click and select 'merge layers'. Repeat this for each layer. You'll be left with 3 layers.
**I should add this, make sure there is no plain background layer. If the background layer has nothing on it, delete it or it will show up as a frame of animation.
Then go to Save for Web. Save it as a GIF, check the 'animate' box, and play with your frame delay. For glitter I like a faster animation, but again, it's personal preference.
This is what your siggy should look like:
I know it seems like a lot of steps, but it's really easy once you get the hang of it
