i’ve never used cs3 before but when you’re saving it make sure you have your settings the same as mine
they will become a bit grainy but not by much. if you’re making your gif 500p in width make sure you only have 8 frames or less, otherwise the quality will reduce by a lot.
make sure you have the first frame selected when you drag on the psd, then it will apply to all the frames ^.^
when selected on your text layer go to the fx icon and click stroke ^.^
if you’re adding text to a gif, do it at the very end, right before you save it. go to the first frame of your gif and add the text/stroke, then select all the frames and go fx > stroke > okay again (stroke will already be checked off, do it anyways), this will add the stroke to all the frames of your gif ^.^
Preferences > Show All > Video > Filters > Make sure nothing is in the “Video Filter Module”
click browse to select your destination folder, save, quit VLC and reopen it!
when i was using cs5 on my pc i would always use these settings with a radius of 0.3 or 0.4
but now with cs6 on my mac 0.3 is too sharp and 0.2 isn’t sharp enough, so i’m still looking for good settings ^.^
i had to figure this out when i got cs6 too!
open the timeline and click “convert to frame animation” or whatever it says, then in the bottom left is an icon that’s a series of squares, click that and you’ve got your frame animation ^.^
i haven’t made any over the 1MB size limit? if you’re making a gif with a 500px width though try to keep the frames under 8 ^.^
you dragged on the psd before you converted it to frame animation didnt you? reread the tutorial ;)
i don’t use GIMP, but if they’re only playing once that’s because you have the repeat set to 1, you need to put it at forever. at least that’s what you’d do in photoshop, idk about gimp
*oh but yeah, the size is way too big too, it needs to be under 1000KB
