Tutorial Tuesday | Creating a .GIF

This week I found my way to Tutorial Tuesday. Sarah Halstead of  Naptime Momtog and Ashley Sisk of Ramblings and Photos have teamed up to challenge us in both shooting photos and editing them. I was excited to take part this week in creating a .GIF, though to be honest, I didn't even know what a .GIF was before reading this tutorial.

A .GIF is a graphic file that has animation applied to it. Its a little more complicated than this, but basically, I took several still photos, uploaded them to Photoshop, copied and pasted them, making several new layers, and then put them in an animated sequence.

My .GIF isn't perfect, but I feel a sense of accomplishment. With Ashley's help, I got past the hurdle of copying and pasting in Photoshop. (Yay for learning something new!) I am determined to learn Photoshop. Every little piece learned is another victory for me! Their tutorial was great, so easy to follow. Click on the button below to hop on over and give it a try too!

And finally, here is my .GIF - me dribbling the basketball:

(I think I start to feel a little queasy if I watch this too long! ha ha)
have a great Wednesday!
