Dont Know How To Make Gif In Photoshop ? Well, I am Showing you How To Make Gif In Photoshop Step by step.

This guide shows you how to create an animated GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) in Adobe Photoshop by producing one right off the bat. You’ll need Adobe Photoshop CS6 or later versions of Photoshop.

Method 1. From Scratch

  1. Open Photoshop. It is the software application with a light-blue “Ps” on a blue-black background as shown in the image above.

  1. Prepare your Photos. The very first thing that is required of you is to import all your photos into individual layers in one Photoshop file. Your gif can have as many photos as you wish. It is vital to find out the dimensions (width and height) of your photos first.

  1. Create a new project. To go about this:
  • Click File
  • Click New
  • Give your document a name!
  • Put the width and height to the size of your pictures (to avoid your photos being cut out)
  • Altering background context to transparent is recommended too
  • Choose your project size
  • Click create

  1. Create a layer for each frame. Each layer in your animated gif constitutes its individual frame. If you are sketching an animation by hand or organizing a collection of still photos, ensure that each frame is placed on a new layer. A new layer can be created in several ways:
  • Tap the new layer icon at the bottom of the layer window.
  • Click layer, new, layer.
  • Hold down Shift+Ctrl+N ( on PC) or Shift + Command+N (on Mac)

  1. Click Window, then Timeline. what this does is add a video timeline beneath your photoshop project, analogous to the timeline in some well-known video editors.

  1. Click Create Frame Animation. You may be required to click the Chevron-down Glyph icon button to see this option.

  1. Click the Three-Line Menu Navicon (Morphing Hamburger Menu). It’s positioned at the top-right of the Timeline window. Tapping it opens a drop-up menu.

  1. Click Make Frames from Layers. By so doing, you automatically convert each layer into an individual frame of the animated gif.

  1. Click the Down Arrow Button next to “Once” at the bottom of the window. This sets the number of times you would like the animation to repeat.

  1. Select Forever. This configures the animated gif to recap the animation continually.
  • You may as well adjust the timing to display on-screen for a shorter or longer time during the animation.

  1. Click File, then select Save for Web. This brings up the export options for web format images.

11. Click Save. It’s best recommended to save the gif as a lower quality so it loads faster, first click the Optimized, 2-Up, or 4-Up tabs and select an option that has a smaller file size in the bottom-left of the image preview.

Ensure “gif” is selected in the drop-down box on the right as shown.

12. Choose a preferred location and file name, then click Save. Your animated gif will be outputted. You can now access the image, share it on the internet, or with friends.
