Could u do a tutorial on how u make your gifs please?
Okay, here goes. This is only one of many methods. I use Windows. Here are some useful tips before we get started:
Whatever clip you’re going to use from any episode, I’d recommend it to be at least 480p. 720p and 1080p are best suited for a best looking GIFs. When I torrent episodes I ensure that they’re decent quality before downloading.
Tumblr GIF sizes have a maximum of 3MB. In order for them to actually play, make sure your GIF size is under 3MB (2.99MB is fine, just as long as it’s not 3MB or more!)
Make sure when you go to export, you have ‘forever’ selected, instead of ‘once’. If you have once selected, this means that’s all your GIF will play for - once.
With that said, let’s get into the tutorial. If you would like me to reiterate any points, just let me know.
¬ So, first and foremost, I’m going to open Photoshop. I use CC 2017. Then I’m going to open Windows Movie Maker. This is so I can trim down parts of the episode to a clip I want to import. 4.43 seconds would be appropriate for the GIF size I am making.
¬ Once the clip has saved, I am then going to go to Window and select Animation. The timeline should open along the bottom panel, which we will need. Then I’m going to go to File, Import, then select Video Frames To Layers… and import my clips and it will convert into frames and layers. It will be displayed like so:
¬ Using the shift key, I’m going to select the first two frames and delete them (sorry Alex!), then repeat the same to any frames that include her at the end. Now all of my frames only include Nicky. Now, clicking the crop tool, or tapping C on my keypad will bring up the dimensions. To get rid of the black lines around the edge of the clip, I’m going to select 1366x768px and crop out what I don’t want.
¬ Once cropped, I’m going to move onto the size of the GIF. Go to Image, then Image Size. Make sure you you have the middle icon selected. Put in the width size you’d like. I’d recommend 268px, since this is tumblr’s default width size. You can see more about default sizeshere.
¬ Now we’ve done that, we can move onto the adjustments. Here I’ve increased the brightness and contrast. You can use multiple effects such as saturation, curves, and exposure - as well as many more. Make sure that your adjustment layers at at the top of your layers, otherwise they will not be present for all the frames of your GIF.
¬ Here is what my GIF looks like with the adjustments I selected:
¬ Using the black and white adjustment or gradients, I can also turn it black and white.
¬ Now let’s talk PSDs. PSD stands for ‘Photoshop Document’, they consist of adjustments/colouring techniques and filters. Usually they’re a saved file, like an uncompleted one for you to work on from where you left off if it ain’t no 15 minute job. Although, many people kindly share them here and online to basically, well, make your GIFs/edits look pretty. I don’t save mine, but I get them fromhere. That said, I’m going to explain how to put one onto your GIF. In short - It’s simple. Open the file where you have your PSD saved and drag it to the top bar next to ‘Untitled-1′:
¬ Now drag the PSD file into the work space, and drag the file onto your GIF like so. Now the file will appear at the top of my layers - if it doesn’t drag it to the top.
¬ Here’s what my GIF looks like with the PSD:
¬ Nice, right? What about text? Let’s move onto that! Pressing T on the keypad, or clicking on the Text tool will bring up the options. I use Ariel Bold Italic. 14pt is too large, so I’m going to reduce it to 9pt.
¬ After typing her dialogue, here’s what it looks like. Again, in order for your text to appear on all frames, make sure it’s at the top of your layers. Using the Move tool, or pressing V on your keypad, move the text on you GIF to position it. Photoshop will present lines to determine where the center position is, like so:
¬ But, I want to make the text stand out more in order for it to be easier to read. Right clicking on the text layer, select Blending Options:
¬ This will open a panel. I want to select a stroke and drop shadow to my text. Here are my settings:
¬ Now we’re going to export. Go to File, Export and Save For Web. It will bring up this panel:
¬ Make sure it’s under 3MB and the looping option selected to ‘Forever’ and finito! Here’s what it looks like:
