So I have made a tutorial on making an animated GIF using GIMP, so now I decided to show you how to make one using Photoshop! You get the best of both worlds. I have grown accustomed to using Photoshop and most certainly enjoy it more than GIMP, however, GIMP will always have a specially place in my heart because that is what I started with when editing images. Nonetheless, Photoshop offers so much more and usually produces much higher quality work. This is a simple short tutorial without the added information of image editing or turning video into a GIF. More or less it is a way to show viewers how a GIF actually works at its most basic form. So if you have any questions please feel free to ask, especially if you don’t understand something in the video below.
Also, if you are wondering how I was able to make this tutorial I used Quicktime Player by doing a screencast and recording audio simultaneously. When using Quicktime Player press File>New Audio Recording then press File>New Screen Recording. Press record on both and begin making your tutorial.
Then I simply mashed the audio and video together using Garageband and uploaded the video to Youtube. There is little editing required when making these types of videos unless it is extremely long and elaborate. However, I don’t believe tutorials should be terribly long unless it actually takes that long for the process. Keeping it short, sweet, and to the point will keep everyone satisfied because not trying to sound harsh, but you won’t waste their time. I hate when tutorialers have to explain their life story when I just want to find out how a simple process works. So, if you find I am being a hypocrite please let me know!
