Animate images v.2
Click on thumbnailed images to enlarge
1. Get two or more pictures. I used these Harry Potter ( aka Daniel Radcliffe) pictures :pinch: .
You can copy and paste them on your Photoshop. (Right click and copy >> open Photoshop>> file>> New(CTRL+N)
2. Select one or first picture of your pictures.
3. Then open a new layer within selecting the first picture in layer palette. Layer >> New >> layer or pressing Shift+CTRL+N. Then click ok.
4. Then select the second picture of your pictures. Select all and copy the picture or pressing by CTRL+A and CTRL+C.
5. Selecting the first picture and selecting the new layer on layer palette, you paste the second picture you just copied.
Then you will see the second picture on first picture’s layer palette. Then do the step 3 and 4 for next pictures if you want to use more pictures. (For more pictures, you click the second picture or so called layer 1 on the layer palette. Then do step 3 and 4)
6. After you’ve done with your picture pasting, then go to Imageready. File >> Edit With Imageready or pressing by Shift+CTRL+M. (Before you go to Imageready, select the first picture that you opened with.) Also, you can close other two pictures.
7. At Imageready, view the animation by Window >> Animation. If animation is already opened, skip this step.
8. Then duplicate the current frame by 2 or more times (It depends on how many pictures you are using) by clicking the 7th button on Animation tab. (Also called as duplicates current frame)
9. For the first frame on Animation, select the first picture and click the eye tab on layer palette for the first picture only for the first picture (or so called indicates the layer visibility).
10. For the second frame on Animation, do the same process as the step 9. (click the eye tab on layer palette for the second picture only and so on). Do the same process to more pictures (as step 9 or 10).
11. Then click the frame delay time, which it locates above the looping time(where it says Forever for default setting). For each frame’s frame delay time, the button locates below the each frame. Set the delay time to 0.5 (you can slow down by adding numbers, but I recommend the 0.5 )
12. At the end, you should get the result like this. Hope you enjoy with picture examples! :biggrin:
