Looping Animations

In this lesson you’ll learn how to transform a series of still photographs into an animation that loops (also known as a cinemagraph). You’ll learn how to combine multiple images into a single file, then you’ll see how to scale the image for use on the internet so it is appropriate for an animation before making sure background elements remain in a consistent position when the file is played. We’ll then show you how to intelligently crop your animation to ensure that nothing gets cut off when it is played. You’ll also see how to control the speed of individual frames, or of the entire animation. We’ll finish off by showing you which file format should be used and which settings should be used. In the process you’ll learn about Photoshop’s Timeline and features such as reverse frames, make frames from layers and how to copy/paste frames.
