GIF: Test One, Faces & Exercise

Winter is a time to experiment and learn new projects.  I have always wanted to make my own GIFs

and I needed a subject to animate, so excuse the OOF:  Out of Focus photos as it's only a procedural test to make sure I could do it


I couldn't think of any other ideas . . .

and I'm also trying to keep in shape after all that food during Christmas


Whew !   I'm getting tired just looking at this

  1. Animate about a hundred frames, then the viewing won't be so exhausting!

      you can change the duration between images. the first was .5 sec and the second was .2 seconds. seems so simple to do it, once you know how

      I didn't have a model, and I wanted some shots before it got dark. so I used what I had
      Nothing to worry about. I just need ideas for an animated avatar

    Hard to get excited about exercise in that chilly gloom, isn't it?

    Wouldn't a JPEG do the job?

      I am too old to have any endurance. It was enough to snap a few photos. I find that I cannot walk all day long like I used to

      a .jpeg is only one static image. The GIF's I produced are comprised of several images displaying at fast duration, in a loop

      I like to learn new things. Making GIFs has been on the list for a while. I know google+ does it but you never know how it will turn out. Clickable Panoramas was a project using free software and I still want to do QTVR

  9. I've seen some GIF's that are really quite creative but don't always send/share well, at least have not for me. I'm guessing that these html pages are more conducive and keep the GIF's live?

    Go Bob, Go!!

      I've got some applications where a GIF would be better than a movie clip and there's something else that I want to try . . . to see if it works

      I'm still interested in Focus Stacking but I don't have the software

      What ? you don't like my GIF's ? I was trying to give everyone a smile to start the day

      I thought I already had a hobby. Photography and riding/driving . . . and now it has also included image editing

      I hope you are feeling better. Take it easy and don't do exercises like I'm doing.

      I wanted to give everyone a big smile and learn how to do GIFs

  13. Charming. My favorite was the one of you assembling your tent. What software are you using?

    1. David:

      The one with the tent was assembled by Google+. You have no control over what comes out. It does what it does, which means to say that it comes out random and you either like it or not.

      These GIFs are assembled manually by me. I choose the images and put them in my order and I can control the speed. I am using Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 or 10. I have PSEL9 on one laptop and PSEL10 on the other. I have also purchased PSEL11 and PSEL12 which are still brand new "in the box" waiting for my WIN8 machine
