I’ve been learning how to use Adobe Flash in CS4 but I didn’t know that I could accomplish a lot of the same animations in Photoshop. One advantage of animating in Photoshop is being able to use the filter gallery. This is a 12-frame gif that has been saved for web and devices. If you click on the image, the animation should play twice in the browser.
The bungee cord images are from Tobias Rehberger’s Embrace exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. I used 6 frames from a movie file to create the gif. I took advantage of the Photoshop import feature: Video Frames to Layers to create the fireworks 3-frame gif.
