Looking to learn how to make an Animated Gif in Adobe Photoshop? There are of course many programs specifically designed to make animated gifs (anigifs), and usually they are faster and easier, but there are also many other reasons to do it in Photoshop, so in this case, we'll explain how to do it in Photoshop.

  • First off, any image that you want in the animated gif will need to be on it's own layer, within the same .psd.
  • So, create a new image in photoshop, and then drag all of the other images you'll want in the final animated gif, into that new image, so they are in layers.
  • Then in the animation window, deselect all of the "eyes" in each layer (which indicates visibility). Select the eye in the layer of the image that you want as your first frame of the animated gif. It will show up in the first frame as a thumbnail.
  • Next, there is a little dropdown button in the animation window just below the X to the right in the titlebar, that would normally close the window (next to the minimize icon), click it. Select "New Frame". Again, set the "eye" of the layer you want for that next frame, deselecting the eye in any other frame. It will add that layer's image to the frame.
  • Repeat that process for as many frames as you need. Once you add the frames, there's a little icon below each frame that will default to 10 seconds. You can change this to whatever you want, which is the amount of time that frame will be displayed until the next frame shows. If you want you can highlight all of the frames by ctrl+clicking, and changing the time in one of the thumbnails, which will set the same time for all of the selected frames.

Once you get the hang of it, it's not hard at all. Smile
