Making a sparkled background

Create a new transparent image 100x100.

Fill with color, texture or gradient of your choice. I have used my own gradient #24. You can find them on this page too.

Use these settings:

Duplicate this image 2 times - CTRL+D. End up with 3 seperate images.

Add noise on each image with these settings:

Save the images as seperate jpg-images. For example gold_01.jpg - gold_02.jpg and gold_03.jpg. Remember where you have saved them.

2. Transparent checked. Click next.
3. Centered in the frame - With the canvas color - Scale frames to fit - all checked. Click next.

How long do you....... 15. (Lower number = faster. Higher number = slower). Click next.
