Photoshop Animated GIFs

Create Animations That Work Everywhere

With the rise of mobile devices, animated GIFs have regained popularity because they just work (unlike Flash animations which do not work on mobile devices). GIFs are an easy solution for short animations.

In this 6-hour class, you’ll learn how to create animated GIFs for websites, ads, or even HTML emails. Photoshop lets you create numerous types of animations. Learn how to hide and show elements, fading them in or out, move things from one place to another, use Photoshop’s video timeline, and more. You’ll even add short video clips, and learn tips and tricks to create seamless loops!

This course is for people that have prior experience using Photoshop, but want to learn how to create and optimize animated GIFs.
