Gif Tutorial. (Revised/2)
This is my tutorial. Hope it helps, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. :)
- This gif will be made in: Photoshop CS4
- Using: KMPlayer
- Extras: I will be using this PSD(PSD 4). And I will be using this action to sharpen my layers. And I’ll be using this video.
This is an example:
500x235 | 8 Frames | 0.14sec | 146 colors | 497 KB
- First, open up your video in KMPlayer. After you open up your video, get to the part you would like to screen cap, and pause it.
- Press CTRL+G on your keyboard, and something like this should pop up:
- These are the settings I use, and it’s what I recommend. I have a screencaps folder I use on my desk top, and you can do the same as well, if you would like, haha.
- After you set your settings, then press start and play your video until the part you wanted screencapped, is done. Then press CTRL+G again, and press stop.
- Now open up photoshop, (CS3, CS4, or CS5). Go to File>Scripts>Load Files into Stack. This window should pop up:
- Click on browse, and select the files you would like to load, and click okay.
- Once the files have been loaded into a stack, go to window>animation, and a bar should pop up on the bottom.
- Follow these steps in order from 1-3:
- And you should have something like this:
- You can make it go as fast, or slow as you want. For me, it depends on how many frames I’m using. I usually stay between 0.12-0.15.
- Now time to save it! The fun part, haha.
- Go to file>Save for Web and Devices.
- Match your settings to mine:
- Now if your gif is over 500KB Follow these steps:
- Make sure to click OK.
- And you’re done! :)
I apologize if this is confusing, I am bad at explaining, and when I do explain, it takes forever! sdkfjhdk. So, I hope this helps, once again, and if you have any questions, need help, please don’t hesitate to ask. :)
