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.
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.
Even if you know the basics of creating a GIF in Photoshop, this class is worth checking out for the time-saving tips and creative ways to enhance a GIF within Photoshop's boundaries.

Who knew making animated GIFs was so easy? Michele is great at providing context for the book exercises and giving you confidence to go out and create your own GIFs!
A fantastic introduction to animated GIFs. The class not only teaches basic execution skills but also gives a solid grasp of how to make wise animation choices so you can begin experimenting on your own.

I had picked up information on how to make GIFs here and there, but this class put it all together and gave me the tools and tricks to make GIFs easily and well.
When you go to Noble to learn a skill, you leave knowing how to do it. Also enjoy being in a class and sharing tips and tricks with other students.
Very pleased with the class. I definitely learned new ways of animating GIFs. Every exercise was precise and super helpful! I feel stronger making GIFs and will certainly implement them more in my future designs.
This was a great introductory course to animations in Photoshop! I am excited to take back what I learned and use at work.

Noble Desktop erased any fear I had about animated gifs. I had tried learning on my own and created what I wanted, but the process was beyond tedious and I avoided offering that service to clients. Noble Desktop showed me how much simpler and doable it could be and now I want to invest more time in learning this increasingly valued skill in my field.
This is my fourth class through Noble Desktop. Always a lot of information to absorb but it's broken down step-by-step with useful technical information that relates to the program. I appreciate that the exercises are created using a number of ways to execute a program.
