Create Animation

Well since I modified my avatar and signature last time, I saw that many people wanted to know how I did that :wink:
How I gave such lifeness? So here is the answer in a tutorial :cool2:
 Okey lets start the resurrection of our Avatars and Signatures :ar:
First lets add some blinking stars in to our avatar.
 Note :ar: To get the successful results, I recommend to use Adobe Imageready CS2
  :info: Basically you can follow all this with only Image ready application but since I'm a much addict towards Photoshop I'll use both :mdr:
 Hey I forgot to say, a nice music please :lol:
 Ok first of all, find a better avatar to add blinking stars or just design one :wink:
 http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/5558/allob9.png
 http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/9986/1fw9.png
 Then go to the layer at the top.
Press Ctrl+Shift+N to create a new layer at the top & name it 'Star 1'
 Select a white to transparent gradient and from the gradient type, choose 'Diamond'
 http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/9513/2gb2.png
 Put a little star in the 'Star 1' layer like this,
 http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/7974/3db2.png
 Then Press Ctrl+Shift+N to build up anothe layer and name it 'Star 2'
Put another white star in that layer like this (not in the same place as 'Star 1' )
 http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/2962/4gf6.png
 So then, as for your desire, add many stars as you like, but remember, each star must have it's own layer (a layer must contain only one star)
 As for mine, I created nine stars in nine layers
 http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/1746/6vi1.png
 but in the canvas, they look like this,
 http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/7793/5cl2.png
 Ok now it's the time to press the magic button :wink:
 Switch to Image Ready now
 http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/2039/7dz8.png   or just press Ctrl+Shift+M
 When you oen the document in Image ready, make sure to open the 'Animation' window
 http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/7075/8kr2.png
 Let's start working :666:
  :ar: First of all select the opasity of the all star layers (Star 1-Star 8) to 0% but Keep the last star layer (Star 9) opasity to 100%
 http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/5306/9wq8.png
 Go to the animation Window,
 Hit Duplicate Current Frame and you'll have another frame
 http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/5356/11ax2.png
 Go to the Frame No 2 from the Animation Window and there, set the 'Star 9' Opasity to 0% and 'Star 1' Opaity to 100%
 In the Canvas It'll look like this
 http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/8120/12qi5.png
 Now press the Tween Button in the Animation Window :oui: (With Frame 2 Selected)
 http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/9747/13hq8.png
 In the Tween Parameters, Set the number of Frames to add to 5 (the other parameters are not important to be discussed here)
 http://img82.imageshack.us/img82/6789/14bc9.png
 Hit 'OK' and you'll see new Five frames between the ones you've edited :smile:
 Click to 
zoom
 If you play the animation now,
 http://img82.imageshack.us/img82/2607/16bo1.png
 It'll look like this
 http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/3836/1tw8.gif
 Ok now, enough with viewing a part :bad: let's finish this :mdr:
 Go to the last frame from the 'Animation Window' (Frame 7) and there, hit to Duplicate the Frame.
 In the new frame, set 'Star 1' Opasity to 0% and 'Star 2' Opasity to 100%
 Tween them now ( :info: you'r previous parameters will be saved automatically. So you don't want to change the number of 'Frames to Add' )
 Then Go back to the last Frame,
 Set 'Star 2' Opasity = 0%
'Star 3' Opacity = 100%
 Repeat this untill you change,
 'Star 8' Opacity = 0%
'Star 9' Opacity = 100%
 Now there should be 55 Frames in the Animation Window :oui:
 If you play the animation now, you must obtain this
 http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/5681/2de2.gif
 And now Go to File>Save Optimised and give a god damn name to the gif :lol:
 Ok It's over now. :smile:
 Have some nice coffee till I continue this thread in telling how to get this

Create Simple Script to Show / Hide File Extensions in Windows XP, Vista and 7

Recently we posted a tutorial about creating script to show / hide hidden files and folders in Windows: Create Simple Script to Show / Hide Hidden Files and Folders in Windows XP, Vista and 7
Today in this tutorial, we are going to share another similar script which can be used to show / hide file extensions in Windows.
This script when executed, checks the status of "Hide extensions of known file types" option and toggles its value. So if its set to hide file extensions, it changes the option to show file extensions and vice versa.
Simply copy paste following code in NOTEPAD and save the file with name "Show_File_Extension_On_Off.vbs" (including quotes):
FileExt = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\HideFileExt"
Set Sh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
St = Sh.RegRead(FileExt)
If St = 1 Then
Sh.RegWrite FileExt, 0, "REG_DWORD"
Else
Sh.RegWrite FileExt, 1, "REG_DWORD"
End If
Sh.SendKeys("{F5}")
That's it. You can place this script at any location like Desktop, Quick Launch toolbar and whenever you need to toggle the "Hide extensions for known file types" option, simply run the script.
PS: If you don't want to create the script manually or face any problem while creating the script, you can download a ready-made script using following link:

Enhance Windows Taskbar’s Auto-Hide Functionality Using Taskbar Activate

How to Open Any Program by Typing its Name in RUN Dialog Box in Windows?

I want to know how to create a registry entry for application shortcuts?
example:
For opening a notepad we go to start - run and type notepad
For opening paint brush we use start - run and type mspaint
Similarly i want to set keywords for opening specific applications in my desktops.
For that what is the registry keyword i need to create / modify... Pls guide me
looking forward for your reply.
Thanks in advance
Yes. That can be done easily using Windows Registry. You can open any desired 3rd party program by just typing its name in RUN or Start menu Search box and press Enter.
Launch_Application_from_RUN.png
You'll need to set the application path in Windows Registry so that Windows can know about the application at the time of execution.
PS: Before starting the tutorial lets assume that our desired application name is "My Application". Its an EXE file and is stored in "C:\Program Files\My Application\" folder. It'll help you in easily understand the tutorial.
So without wasting any time, lets start our tutorial:
1. Type regedit in RUN or startmenu search box and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.
2. Now go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths
3. Now we'll need to create a new key under "App Paths" key. Right-click on "App Paths" key and select "New -> Key". Set its name to your desired application name along with its extension e.g. My_Application.exe
4. Select the key created in Step 3 and in right-side pane, set value of "Default" to the full path of application's EXE file e.g. C:\Program Files\My Application\My Application.exe
5. Again in right-side pane, create a new String value "Path" and set its value to the folder containing your application EXE file e.g. C:\Program Files\My Application\
Create_App_Paths_in_Windows_registr.png
6. That's it. Now you can launch your desired application by just typing its name in RUN or Start menu Search box.
NOTE: If you want a ready-made registry script to do the task automatically, then copy paste following code in Notepad and save the file with name "AskVG.REG" (including quotes).
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\My Application]
@="C:\\Program Files\\My Application\\My Application.exe"
"Path"="C:\\Program Files\\My Application\\"
You just need to replace BOLD part of the above script with the correct application name and path. After saving the file, run it and it'll add the program path to Registry so that you can launch it directly from RUN and Start menu Search box.
