Photoshop makes it very simple to turn your videos into looping GIFs, and allows you enough freedom to embellish them with some text or a logo as directed in the ‘Text-Only GIFs’ section above. Stop-motion GIFs are certainly the most time-consuming method featured in this article, however the results, if executed cleanly, can really extend the boundaries of your creative content.
This technique can enable you to produce anything from a slideshow of products to a miniature stop motion story using objects or people as subjects.
Once you are happy with the preview on the left hand side, click ‘Save…’ and name your file. For this section, I will be using a set of images from i Stock as an example. Open a new file in Photoshop, with the dimensions required. Select the images from your computer folder and open them in Photoshop, so they appear in separate tabs along the top toolbar, alongside the blank file you just created. Drag your images onto the blank file in the order you would like them to appear. Using the rulers around the edge of the work area, click and drag two guides across your canvas until you find the centre. Select the top right icon on the Timeline window and click ‘Make Frames From Layers’.
Place them in the centre of the file with plenty of room around the edges. If you cannot see the rulers, go to View Rulers and they should appear. Align each image to the centre, according to where your two guides meet. Click on ‘Window’ from the top toolbar and select ‘Timeline’ to make the timeline tab appear at the bottom of the screen. All of your layers should now appear in the timeline. In order to make this short animation loop, I will need to duplicate the first, second and third frames and add them to the end of the timeline, so that it looks symmetrical at a glance.
Select the ‘T’ button on the left hand side and choose a font relevant to your brand. Right click on the text layer and click on ‘rasterize type’. Now we can create more text layers for our GIF using the same method.
For this example, I will make another line of text appear underneath the first line from the first layer.
Drag the blank bottom layer named ‘Background’ into the bin on the layers panel: 7.
Click on the small button on the top right hand side of the timeline window and select ‘Make Frames From Layers’: 8. In the window that appears, select ‘GIF 128 Dithered’ under the Preset drop down menu. Under the ‘Colours’ tab, ensure that ‘256’ is selected: 11.
Holding the shift button, select all of your layers in the timeline panel, then right click and choose your desired delay time between frames 9. Change the dimensions if necessary, using the ‘Image Size’ section.
To do this, click on the ‘new layer’ icon and fill it with a background colour. Insert the logo into the file by dragging and dropping the logo from your computer folder into Photoshop. Move it around on the canvas until you are happy with its position. Rasterize and merge the logo layer down onto the plain white background layer as before. We are now ready to make our layers into an animation.
Go to Window Timeline to open the timeline window at the bottom of the screen. Click on the small button on the top right hand side of the timeline window and select ‘Make Frames From Layers’. You can add text/logo elements to the end of your video animations, if necessary, by following the steps from the ‘Text-only GIFs’ tutorial above.
