how to produce an animated gif in Photoshop

Marco J: nice work!

Just in case anyone was curious...these are the steps I followed to make the animated gif with Photoshop CS2:
  1. Painted in layers, there are 23 layers in my original image. Start from the sketch layer, underpaint (sort of) layer, multiple layers (as a general rule they are painted from dark values to light values) ... painting in layers can be useful for various reasons (that I don't explain here).
  2. Inside photoshop CS2, open the Animation palette and the Layers palette. Make all the layers invisible (clicking on the eye icon of a layer in the layer palette)
    1. Render visible the next invisible layer (starting from the bottom, just click again the eye icon of the layer in the layer palette)
    2. in the animation palette click the "Duplicate selected frames" icon (It is represented by a white page). You can choose how much time the current frame will be seen on screen selecting the appropriate voice from the pull down menu that is accessible with the black triangle under every frame in the frame palette
    3. repeat steps 2.1 ans 2.2 until all layers are visible
  3. Choose save for the web (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+s on a PC with default shortcut settings). Choose the gif format opions you like. Click save. Choose a name for the final product. Confirm.
  4. Locate your gif and test it !(your browser should be able to display animated gifs, some other programs just don't), if it doesn't work it was probably my fault
  5. Congratulations!
I hope this was clear, If some steps of the process I described are wrong (made it from memory), incomplete or just need more explanations just tell me an I'll correct the post.

ps.: there is also the possibility to save in Macromedia flash format (produces and swf file via the export command in Photoshop) but, in my case, the result was affected by strange artifacts.

Should I use a big brush ? or a textured brush ? or the plain old hard round ?

SaraD and Lemog:

too bad.. I have really been enjoy the both of you guys paintings in past workshops.. but its understandable, I'm finding it harder to squeeze the workshops in lately too.

Rebeccak:
its always fun to watch you paintings progress and not only because you post a LOT of wips but also the way it seems to focus in like if your adjust the focal plane of your camera... its kinda cool, and quite skillfully done .

So when are you gonna tell us more about this new workshop/course your doing?

And to end it off a little tiny drawing from me. I know its bad, but I was kinda on a time budget here so dont expecting too much of me .

Hey RebeccaK,

my daughter(4) when watching your wip while I scrolled through the thread: "that is totally supey..."

it loses in the translation, I guess... but feel flattered.

Any brush you want! Check out Amerasu's Tutorial, it's really great (link earlier in this thread). I use a soft round airbrush, but lots of people like the sharper/harder brush settings ~ whatever you feel most comfortable with is best, but I like the soft brushes due to the ability to really nicely blend strokes.

Hopefully these two guys will be back at least for commenting! And maybe later participation...

Thanks very much! I appreciate your comments.

Very soon, thank you for asking!

That's so cool, Mr. Mu! Thanks for telling me that! I feel *supey* inside...

Looking forward to seeing everyone's work when I get home!

Cheers,

I found out how to set the framerate... I updated the procedure given on the previous message and updated the gif with a slower version.

Blending, phase 1

I started some blending. I'm doing the blend without looking at the actual reference right now...so forgive me if something goes off...there also are some greys left out from previous background. I think I'll take care of them later.
