Chapter 22. Animations and Rollovers > Animation with Photoshop

Animation with Photoshop

To those who see Photoshop as a tool to edit static images, using Photoshop to create animation might seem like using a backhoe to flip a pancake. However, when used in tandem with ImageReady, Photoshop is actually an excellent tool for creating short animations for the Web. In this chapter, you get first-hand experience in making three different kinds of exciting, dynamic GIF animations for a Web site. For each animation, you use Photoshop to create the graphics that compose the animation and then switch over to ImageReady to assemble the images into a compact, eye-catching file.

In the sections that follow, you'll have the opportunity to learn how to make text dissolve before your very eyes. Then you'll move on to using Photoshop's largely overlooked displacement mapping capability to create a sequence of images for use in a GIF animation. Then you'll learn how to animate seamless tiling textures to create a scene of fog drifting by your porthole window.
