Tutorial:  Photoshop Animation by Kttoo777 Tutorial:  Photoshop Animation by Kttoo777
I've switched accounts!

:iconhalo-bot: Is my new account.

If you have questions about the tutorial, please ask me there as I won't see them here!

Thanks! C:

Well, here it is! The Photoshop animation tutorial! I tried to make it as easy to understand as possible, but if anything isn't clear feel free to ask!

Also you might have to download it to be able to read the text.

As far as animating on other photoshops, depending upon whether or not the controls are the same, you should be able to do it still, the principles are all the same the only thing you might have trouble with is duplicating layers and saving for the web, the two of which I don't know if other photoshops have.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure thats all... Have fun!

What if I want to upload the animation to Windows Movie Maker. How would I do that?

:D This is extremely helpful, thank you so much!!! :D

What if you wanted to color the animation? how would it fit into all of those frames?

Whoo... that's a little bit more complicated. There are a couple ways you could do it I guess, first that comes to mind is make a layer under the first frame and color it as though it were just a regular picture, then copy the colored layer underneath each successive frame, altering it to the different motion of said frames, and when you're all done, merge each colored layer and corresponding frame. If that makes sense? I hope it does haha...

There are probably better ways to do it, so I'd advise asking around a bit. I'm no expert. C:

Thanks so VERY much for this tutorial!! I have CS4 and this worked perfectly. I am thrilled beyond measure as I had done all the frames for this dev [link] but then could NOT figure out how to save it as an animated Gif for the life of me.
Thanks again!!

Does this work for CS3?
I can't seem to find the animation tick box when I click Save for Web and the animation all comes out bunched together as one frame...

Sorry, I'm not entirely sure. I've never used any other version of Photoshop besides Elements. You may want to try searching for "animation" in Help on the programs tool bar or something though. I seem to remember that being how I discovered it in Elements. C:

I actually did precisely that.
Thank you anyway. :D
