Animation in Photoshop
This tutorial will show you how to create an animation like the one pictured here and save it as an animated GIF. This animation uses a simple moving shape, but the same principles apply to any type of animation.
- For making a GIF out of a video clip, see our Video GIF tutorial.
- If you are using Photoshop CS2 or earlier, you need to use the ImageReady animation feature.
Animations are created using layers. There are two things you need to do:
- Create a series of layers which will become the frames of the animation.
- Use the Animation palette to create frames and animate them.
