Animated GIF – Loading Student
Have you ever visited a website and waited for the screen to load with the little windmill
Go to Google and look up “loading GIF” for some examples.
1. Save and post 10 examples to your blog with a paragraph description.
2. Get a camera from a teacher and a classmate to help you take the photos. You can NOT use images from the internet for this project.
3. Take a minimum of 10 photos of yourself, making sure you can see your ENTIRE BODY and make sure you see movement.
4. Edit each photo to have a transparent background.
5. Make on file, the size should be 8 inches by 8 inches at 72 resolution, RGB color.
6. Drag all the edited photos of you onto the one document.
7. You should now have 10 or more layers in your layer palette.
8. Go to Window – Timeline
Click on Create Video Timeline Drop down arrow and choose Create Frame Animation
Click on Create Frame Animation Button
Click on the Timeline fly out menu and choose Make Frames from Layers
At the bottom on the left of the Timeline Panel you can choose the drop down arrow near the word Once and choose Forever
On the bottom of each frame is a time (0 sec.) , change the time to set the speed of the frame rate (.2) works well but this timing is completely up to you.
You can add a different background to the entire photo if you wish.
When finished go to File Save For Web making sure you are set to a .GIF
Post your your blog with a paragraph description.
