II. In Photoshop, we will create a series of crops from the original image at 320 x 200. Please be sure to select the crop tool in Photoshop and set the crop dimensions to 320 x 200.

Proceed to crop about 8-9 images on the ORIGINAL image. Carefully moving each crop closer to simulate the zoom. Don't worry if you are not exact, this is what will create the shaking effect. Save these images using the 'Save for Web' option in photoshop using the .PNG file format using a sequential naming convention (ie. car1.png, car2.png, etc)

III. After you have created your images, you are ready to apply the blur effect on each image. To simulate a motion blur, we will use the Radial Blur, found in the Filter, menu of Photoshop.

However, before we apply the blur, create copies of the first and last images and rename them 'first.png' and 'final.png'. These will serve as the endpoints that are not in motion.

Let's start applying the effect! Open your first car image (not the copy) and select the Radial Blur. The following panel should appear:

Be sure to set your Blur Method to Zoom. Keep the quality set to Good. Save your images again. Repeat for all images except for 'first.png' and 'final.png'. If you are clever, set a batch save for this process.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
