Chapter 25. Imageready Basics > Photoshop in Focus

Photoshop in Focus

ImageReady enables you to tween between frames in three ways or with a combination of the three options. Tweening creates intermediate frames that blend between two existing frames. (Frames of the animation are defined by the content of the visible layers in the image.) Understanding how the three options work enables you to make informed decisions about tweening.

1.
In ImageReady, open a new document. Make it 400 pixels wide, 100 pixels tall, and transparent.

2.
Select a shade of red from the Swatches palette as the foreground color.

3.
Select the Rectangle tool from the Toolbox and drag a small rectangle in the upper-left corner of the document.

4.
Select any layer style from the Styles palette.

5.
Add a new layer to the document.

6.
Change the foreground color to any shade of blue.

7.
Select the Ellipse tool and drag a small ellipse in the lower-right corner of the image.

8.
Select a different style for this layer.

9.
Reduce the layer's Opacity setting to 30% in the Layers palette.

10.
In the Layers palette, hide the top layer.

11.
In the Animation palette, click the Add New Frame button.

12.
In the Layers palette, hide the lower layer and show the upper layer.

13.
Select Tween from the Animation palette menu. In the Tween With pop-up menu, select Previous Frame, and select 6 in Frames to Add. Select the All Layers radio button. In the Parameters section, select the Position check box and deselect the Opacity and Effects check boxes. Click OK.

14.
Undo.

15.
Return to the Animation palette menu and select Tween again. Deselect the Position check box, and select the Opacity check box. Click OK.

16.
Undo.

17.
Return to the Tween dialog box, deselect Opacity, and select Effects. Click OK.

18.
Undo and experiment with the tweening options in combination.
