i need an individual gifset of this

one gifset per episode - 2x02  enough is enough

There’s something to be said about a glass half full. About knowing when to say when. I think it’s a floating line. A barometer of need and desire. It’s entirely up to the individual. And depends on what’s being poured. Sometimes all we want is a taste. Other times there’s no such thing as enough, the glass is bottomless. And all we want, is more.

Hi! I'm just dropping in to say that I love your voltron gifs! And I was wondering which sharpening settings you use for them? You don't have to answer if you don't want~ Hope you have a nice day! <3

Hey there! Thank you for dropping by with this nice message <3

So since a few people have asked before, I decided to make this post a very short rundown of the sharpening process I usually do! Sorry if any of this is confusing, I tried my best to explain it but if you’re still unsure about something, feel free to DM me for more questions if you’d like!

Sharpening Gifs using Surface Blur + Smart Sharpen

Basically, my sharpening process always involves surface blur and smart sharpen. I’ll show with screenshots the settings I usually pick, but I’m going to assume you already know the first steps of gifmaking so I’m going to skip ahead!

Once you convert the frames to timeline, then convert them to Smart Filters, I usually start with the Surface Blurs. (here’s a screenshot in case you’ve never used it before)

Usually, I do 3 surface blur filters, then 2 smart sharpens in a row, in that order. Each filter I put on, I use progressively lowered settings, like so:

I start with radius at 15, threshold at 8, then lower it a bit with each surface blur.

Next, I go through the Smart Sharpen filter (which is under the Sharpen tab as seen in the first screenshot above). This, I also do with progressively lowered settings, like so:

Only 2 Smart Sharpens though, because I find that over-sharpening doesn’t look so good.

Of course, feel free to play with any of the above settings as you will and see what looks best for you! These are just the standard I pick for myself personally.

THEN I do this other little trick I found. See the filters lined up here?

I right click each one and change the setting to Darken.

I do this for each one. All of them are under the Darken blending option. Once in a while, I experiment and change one of the filters to Soft Light, because it sometimes looks nice depending on the scene I’m gifing.


Again, feel free to play around with all of them though! Lots of options to try out. I heard some people only use one surface blur filter, then just a normal blur layer, and then one smart sharpen. There are lots of ways to play with this. You can also use “darken” on all of them, or just a few of them.

And.. that’s basically it! I think it makes a huge difference and I really love how it looks personally, so I do it all the time. :)

Other tips with gifs + coloring

Just a random piece of advice that I feel has helped me: A gif, no matter how big it is and despite the new 3MB limit, can only hold up to 256 colors. This is why some gifs look grainy even though you feel like you’ve gotten it to the point of being what you feel is the highest quality gif it could possibly be. So to help make it look even better, I personally find that singling out a few key colors and then desaturating the other ones individually through hue/saturation filter, makes an immense difference in the end result. Black/white Gradient Maps help a lot as well!

(Also, I used this video for reference when I first started)

So there you have it. These are the basics of my gifing process. After trying a bunch of different coloring options, I now like to keep it fairly simple when I’m just doing a normal gif/gifset. No need to get too complicated! :)

Hope this helps!!

Hey could you do a gifset of people fight against negan? So like individuals so not focused on the war in general but like when Carl went after him, when michonne did, Olivia slapping him, Gabriel coming up with the Maggie is dead idea, Rick saying I'll kill you, rosita shooting Lucille, daryl saying his name, Maggie saying we fight and any other examples of individuals standing up against him? Please? Thank you! Sorry I just love how defiant they all can be!

hey there, of course i can do that for you, no need to apologise! i hope you like it and i hope you’re having a lovely day!

I don't know what it is but I'm utterly obsessed with Malec. They are just so fascinating to look at. And just them as individuals.. And how they look at each other 😍 I can't... I need something to temper my hunger.

How can you not be obsessed with Malec. Look at them!
Season 2 can not come fast enough! 
Plus this video doesn’t help (gifset if you can’t hear what they are saying here)
Umm give me Season 2 now!!!!!

You know what I really love about Ian and Anthony? That whatever they are doing, they make us extremely happy.

Like back then when a fan asked them to slow dance together on lunchtime, and they were like ‘ok’. And then they tricked us into thinking they would actually do it, and we fangirled like shit, and then day just made hilarious weird moves in slow motion next to each other and we cried tears of laughter, like

It’s these moments where you can see that it’s not only the ship that’s great. And I think with recent events in the fandom people need to remember the following: We love Ian and Anthony, as individuals, as comedians, as human beings.
