Tutorial: gif. images (with Photoshop)


Now and then I have readers wondering and asking how I do my gif. images. All my gif. images are made with Photoshop version CS6. I have also said that I’ll do a tutorial, so if you’ve always wanted to make gif. images and have Photoshop, then this tutorial might be the one for you!

 For people who don’t have Photoshop, GIMP (free) might be the one for you, as I've heard good reviews about it! Here is a good site where you can upload & create gif. images:

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message!

Voor de mensen die zich afvragen hoe ik nou die bewegende ‘gif. images’ maak, jullie vraag is gehoord hoor! Ik kon het ook niet gedaan hebben zonder mijn grote vriend Photoshop versie CS6. Dus als jij net als ik PS heb en altijd al gif. images willen maken, dan heb ik hier tips en trucjes voor jou!

Geen PS? No problemo. De gratis programma 'GIMP' kan ook mooie design en foto's effect maken! Hier is een site die ik weleens gebruik waarbij je online je foto’s oplaad: http://www.freeimagehosting.net/

Mocht je vragen hebben, laat gewoon een berichtje achter!

1. To have all your images on the same page, you can do that by copy/paste. But! You can save a lot of time by using Adobe Bridge. 

2. Timeline is your friend. 

3. I hope my silly steps are clear, if not, feel free to leave a note!

4. For shooting pictures, I highly recommend you to use a tripod.

  26. Zo leuk! En mmmm dat ziet er heerlijk uit! :D

  27. Wow I like how to demonstrate step by step. Very easy to understand. Must pin this for future use :)

  28. pfft sometimes i feel so embarrassed and stupid that i have forgotten how to make a gif simply because:
    1) i'm a design student and it's so awkwardly silly that a design student can't make gif because it's like..the most basic animation essential/needed
    2) .....self can edit a video/mv but can't make gif. what is wrong with you, self.

    so yeah, i'm so very thankful for this tutorial. and with PS CS6 too! augh, i need to upgrade to cs6... wanna buy the official adobe apps but parents are 1) so stingy, 2) refusing to understand and 3) oblivious in a "idc" manner about the major i'm studying. bah. even now i'm using indesign cc trial to build my ipad magazine pfft they're like, "if you can still use the pirated version then do that instead" ..... /facepalm

  29. I have to try to make gif's sometime soon! Thanks for the tutorial! :)
