About This Workshop

Like GIFs? You love GIFs!

The Graphics Interchange Format or GIF is an an eight-bit, 256-colour, bitmap picture file made up of stills that are animated into an infinitely loopable, silent, moving image.

The GIFs you see (and use) everyday are a huge part of the everyday internet experience. From Michael Jackson eating popcorn to David Bowie's ch-ch-changes, there is no doubt that GIFs are funny AF and you need to know how to make them yourself.

The trend for expressing ourselves without proper words, with emojis and abbreviations is here to stay. It's time to learn how to make your own cute and shareable animated GIFs in Photoshop so you can slay on the internet, and IRL.

If a picture says a thousand words, then an animated GIF probably says 10,000 so bring along your ideas for killer GIFs and a laptop with Photoshop installed and you'll learn how to make your dreams come true.

Takeaways

  • You'll make four GIFs in four different styles: rotating images to create movement, one image retouched to allow animation, one GIF that features tweening and one that's built from an MP4 file.
  • All GIFs will be saved for web as .gif files and exported for Instagram as videos.
  • Our GIFs on average will be about 10 frames long and have that fun, clunky web feel - if you're a Photoshop expert and you're looking for longer, detailed, smooth and complex animations then an After Effects course might be for you.

Preparation

A basic understanding of Photoshop is required. You will be doing retouching with the Clone Stamp Tool, clipping paths with the Pen Tool and an understanding of how Photoshop layers work is necessary. From these basic skills we'll create frame by frame animations under the guidance of the instructor.

Please make sure you have a working version of Photoshop installed on your laptop.

About Our Partners

Jacky Winter

We come to work to make the world a better looking place.

For us, there’s nothing greater than showcasing the 100+ artists on our books and helping them earn a commercial livelihood. Likewise, there’s nothing more satisfying than a happy client and a brilliant end result – after all, it’s what we measure our success on.

If we were going to describe ourselves quickly, we’d say we’re a creative representation and production agency. We really believe creativity and business can live a mutually rewarding existence. But it needs glue to make it all stick. And that’s us.

We’re driven to be the best in the business because we bloody love the visual medium and want to see it thrive. We’re in it for the long run – to promote our artists, guide our clients, showcase creativity, inspire the up-and-comers, reignite the old timers, to collaborate, connect and evolve and do it all better than anyone else.

Gif Horse

Gif Horse is powered by The Jacky Winter Group, one of the most experienced production teams in the business. Based in New York and Melbourne, Jacky Winter have produced everything from simple editorial illustrations to full-length animations. And if your small-screen project really takes off or becomes something bigger, we can hook you up with Flutter — Jacky Winter’s full-service animation production arm. Because, while the media landscape might be changing, the skills, talents and chutzpah it takes to make great ideas happen are timeless.
