My Photoshop Creation
Birthday card for Photoshop
How I Did It:
I started with the image from Sue's 20 years of Photoshop, the Big Electric Cat. Using CS2, I changed the colors of the original using hue/sat, and 2 color variation were made on separate layers. Lightening brushes were used on transparent layers. The animation was then done done in PS CS2.
- I learned how to create and save animations so that I could go back into them to change them after they were completed. This was done by saving the image as a Tiff file or a PSD file to preserve the layers and the animation palette. Then I saved them as a gif as an animation.
- I learned how to adjust the animation document size down so that it could be posted on the forum. This can be partially done first in Photoshop, and then there are many smaller adjustments that can be done in the save for web settings.
