Just gotten my 7 year old sister hooked on Once Upon a Time by showing her all the Snow & Charming Fairytale Land flashback episodes in order, now she wants to see it all .. I call that a successful evening :D aha
Lol I’ll just reply here, I don’t know why I went anon for that. But I’m just wondering what all you use, because every time I try to make a gif it ends up looking terrible. Do you have any specific tips or tricks that make them flow more smoothly?
I’ll just give you some pointers on how I make mine, my ‘top tips’ if you will :P
It’s a good idea to get HQ clips to work with
I use KMPlayer to make screencaps
Increase the frames per second when creating caps to make the gif flow more smoothly (though this will increase the gif size as there’ll be more animation frames/layers)
Use 256 colours when saving coloured gifs (black and white ones can go as low as 20 colours and still look fine)
Sharpen filters are your friend; I use settings 500%, 0.4, gaussian blur on ‘smart sharpen’ (but sometimes this can be too much so lower the % if it doesn’t look good)
Sharpen after you’ve done all your resizing
Download some PSD’s and mess around with them until they look good
That’s all I can think of off the top of my head, but I hope it was helpful! :)
Have you ever made a GIF tutorial? If you haven't, do you ever plan on it? Sorry if this has already been asked
Sorry this took a while to reply to, it got lost in my inbox when I was going Hunger Games crazy in everyone’s asks the other day :P and I made one recently here for blending 2 images/2 gifs/a gif and an image … but what kind of gif tutorial are you looking for?! :)

#request all you want but it's not what i neeeeeed #when levels won't work and the cap's too greeeeen #you're bad at texturessssss #tears come streaming down your face #when photoshop deletes what you can't replace #when you work all day but it goes to waste #could it be worse? #curves will guide you home #and lighten your woes #and i will tryyyyyyyy to blend youuuu
