Chapter 19. Designing for the Web > Creating an Animated GIF in Photoshop

Creating an Animated GIF in Photoshop

Adobe is moving a lot of the features available in ImageReady over to Photoshop, and one of those is the ability to create an animated GIF file (). An animation is a sequence of images, or frames, that vary slightly to create the illusion of movement over time. The process is very similar to creating the animated GIF in ImageReady; however, since Photoshop is not primarily an animation program there is a bit of difference in how you compress and save the final file. Nevertheless, since Photoshop has more drawing tools than ImageReady, it's not a bad idea to do your animated GIF creations directly in Photoshop.
