Hey guys! Recently I posted my How to Make a Tissue Paper Tassel Banner tutorial, along with this sweet GIF.
FYI: I made that. The banner. And the GIF. Obviously I am feeling real good about myself right now. I used to be intimidated by making GIFs, but they are easy, lemme show you how to make a GIF in photoshop:
Step 1: Open all your images
Step 2: Create a new (duplicate) layer for each image on your first image document placing them in reverse order – first image on bottom, last on top.
Step 3: Go to the “Window” Tab and choose “Timeline.” (Timeline will open at the bottom of the screen)
Step 4: Turn off all image layers, except your first image
Step 5: Set your image delay below your timeline layer (time this image shows before switching to next image)
Step 6: Create a new timeline layer by clicking the page button below, and then turn on your next image layer
Step 7: Repeat step 6 until you have all your images in your timeline
Step 8: Save your GIF by pressing CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + S or by Selecting “Save for Web” then choose your GIF option from the drop down menu at top of the pop up window
Look, I even made this tutorial into a GIF. It took about 8 minutes, start to finish.
See, only 8 steps. Making a GIF in Photoshop is not difficult at all. Now you can use it on your blog for tutorials and look just as geeky as me.
