Photoshop Tutorials

first of all, this is my second tutorial, so I'll be very happy if you comment, when you see this tutorial, even if it just ":]"...By the way if you don't understand, remember...I'm mexican and sometimes it's to hard to explain myself :]
I know that When you want to do a gif with a scene of a movie, Tv show, music video etc... you look for tutorials here, and they say "you need "X" program and imageready", so I will tell you that if you have Photoshop CS4 or CS5 this will work, I don't know if this works with Photoshop CS2 or CS3... but if you have CS4 at least, you don't have to be worried anymore [as I was]
There are just 2 software you will need:
*Photoshop CS4 or CS5
*One software to download your videos from youtube or another videos network, I used "atube catcher" and you can download it here [And maybe Movie Maker]
here, it's free and it is REALLY secure.

*If you do this you have to look for the video with best quality at the page, today I will work with a video from Phineas & Ferb "Squirrels in my pants"
*copy the link and paste it in your program to download videos. don’t forget to check out the points with pink
*you have to download it with any of this formats MOV, AVI, MPG, MPEG, my photoshop worked with "MOV video"
*If you only want the last scene [if it's a large video] you can select it on Photoshop, but I didn't understand very well so I download it in the format "WMV" and I cut it in Movie maker

But after cut it with movie maker, you have to:
*convert your video in atube catcher in the option "video converter" in "MOV format",

*Then in photoshop, go to:
Menu> File> import> video frames to layers
Then you will see a window like this, follow instructions click accept, or yes or whatever that English version says :]
*Then you will have 500 frames and 500 layers, you will delete the ones you don’t need from the layers palette and from the frames palette too.
*You can cut the exactly piece of the video that you need, something like this
*then you are done, you can edit the image, but it will be pretty bored because u have to edit it, frame per frame...Layer per Layer

I will look like this
, and this gif shows you that you can change the speed, here I got wrong and I out it to slow :/
