I have PS 7 and see some of you have animated siggies, such as a bug following around the picture. Do I just make lots of copies of the picture and then add a ladybug in different places on each and put them together?

And how can you make it look like the text is being written in the siggy? I can't find any examples of this, but hope some of you know what I'm talking about

Yes, you make different layers of the bug (or whatever you want to move). Put each one a little spaced out from the next. When you go to animate make all of the layers invisible except the one you want to show up on each frame. It may take you a few tries to get this right but once you get the hang of it you will be able to do it. When I animate butterflies I usually make a few different versions of the butterfly and skew the wings so that it looks like it is flapping.
