Post Reply PS Tutorial 2
Posted 1/16/10 , edited 1/23/10
Ok i am officially acting pro here. but hey, what do u think bored self-acclaimed gfx experts do? XD

This month is learning how to animate pics!


Scanbars

LENGTHY INTRODUCTION: Unlike the previous tutorial, I did not figure this out myself. I relied on Google PS Tutorial which is super damn ****@#&% annoying to the point that I ended up exploring 'Animation in PhotoShop' myself. Once I've mastered scanbar animation, I could do any animation within limitation of PS. It's really exciting when u manage to enter the hidden world of Photoshop Animation. You have to try to understand how I feel. Today I will be teaching what I'm most confortable with. It's tedious at first but just look at the number of steps. Much less than where I have been learning unsuccessfully from. SCANBARS is the second request I had when I first joined the GFX Makers Community 2 years ago. The requester simply asked for one on her/his banner. I was like "shucks, what the heck is that??" Took me 2 days to fully master it. See if you can beat that!
ANIMATION has a beautiful effect on any GFX is used correctly by masters. I had fun doing icons with it. Just look below to see what other things I have SELF LEARNED (<----so proud of myself XD hurry and praise me!!) after learning just how to do scanbars


LAZY PEOPLE INTRODUCTION: LET'S START! PLEASE NOTE that I am still using PS CS2 so it might differ in the latest version you rich people are using XP

P.S. I may sound pretty haughty sometimes but please be assured it is just for fun. Never take me seriously. This time, the pics are pretty self explanatory...

AND AGAIN, THIS ARE TAKEN FROM CUSTOMER REQUESTS USED WITHOUT PERMIT SO SHUSH!

Step 1 I have done my background for my animated icon! Pretty?


Step 2 Nothing difficult unless now is your first time looking at the program


Step 3 Opacity is set according to your preference - do u want it to cover your pic while it moves or just add effect as a near transparent moving bar?


Step 4 Important if this is the first time you even open your PS. I usually leave that application visible everytime I do any graphics but for ya sake....


Step 5 to 7 Here comes all the complicated steps...Animation layer refers to the pics u see when u click new frame on your Animation Window at the bottom, NOT THE ONE ON THE RIGHT SIDE WITH ALL YA LAYERS OF BRUSHES/TEXTURES


WALAA~ Your first animated icon! It's the same formula for every other graphics! You should get something like this:



However, if you hate the neverending moving of bars to places of no end and u are ready for another challenge, try this: WARNING Might be very complicated and ruin your whole icon!


i call this the bouncing effect which happens to be my self discovered style! To HELL with GOOGLE TUTORIALS!



Being a graphics maker means you must BE CREATIVE and DARING to try out new stuffs. Who knows you might discover a whole new naimation technique! i HIGHLY recommend playing with photoshop during ya leisure time
Once you get the gist of how this real simple (to me it is) animation application is, you can do things like...



THE LAST icon IS NO DOUBT DONE BY ME AND NO DOUBT WILL NOT BE TAUGHT TO U! <----kinda hard to teach through words and pics. You need to see my pretty face and listen to my pretty voice to understand (joking joking)
