If you want to draw swirls in one of the world's most popular graphics editing programmes, then you should be able to find some help here: http://www.fgsjustgoogleit.com.

Cyril, TBH, that's a terrible link. The swirls are really hard to use on that one.

Try this instead. http://lmgtfy.com/

Just a quick question, what programs do people use to create mocks. Are their any special ones.

Photoshop, Powerpoint, GIMP, I'm sure PerthTV uses Paint.

Usually with the use of a video editing/authoring program. To make moving graphics, you create the stills using Adobe Photoshop or Macromedia Fireworks (MS Paint too, I suppose), then use the video program to make them move, animate, change shape, transition etc.

Download a trial version of Sony Vegas and have a play. It's pretty simple to use once you get the hang of it.
