*NOTE: I accidentally forgot to add Adobe ImageReady to the list of Animation programs, so if you marked "Other" because you use ImageReady, great. If you mark "Other" because you use a program besides ImageReady or Animation Shop, please leave a comment to let me know which one you do use.*

I have read and tried almost every tutorial for photoshop in here.
Do certain things not work because I have a trial version?
I'd appreciate it if someone could help me out.
I've tried animating, outlining text, the transparent icon, and NOTHING.
