Animation in Adobe Photoshop / ImageReady

Note: ImageReady is an application that used to come bundled with Photoshop. ImageReady has now been discontinued. As of version CS3, animation is done with the Photoshop Animation window.

This 5-page tutorial shows you how to create an animation using Adobe ImageReady. Animations can be exported as an animated GIF or Macromedia Flash file.

Animated GIFAnimations are created using layers. The process involves creating a series of layers which will become the frames of the animation.

At the end of this tutorial we will have created an animated GIF like the one pictured here. This animation uses moving text, but the same principles apply to any type of animation including changing shapes, etc.
