The lesson this week was on how to make an animated gif. I see these all over Tumblr for Once Upon a Time and Rumplestiltskin/Mr Gold (Robert Carlyle has got to be the most gif-able actor ever! So many goofy faces!), so of course I was interested in learning how to make gifs.
This is a series of pictures of my kid a few years ago--back when he allowed himself to be photographed smiling.
The only processing on the photos was to convert them to black and white. Then I layered them one on top of the other and saved them for the web as an animated gif. This is the half-second delay. That's all there is to it!
I see how making gifs could become addicting!
