Learn how to use a series of photos and frame animation to create an animated GIF.

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to turn a series of photos into a looping animated GIF using Photoshop.
This technique works well for creating a timelapse animation using series of photos taken from a DSLR or point-and-shoot camera, or even a mobile device. For this example, we'll use a series of photos taken with burst mode from an iPhone. Download and unzip the sample assets above, or use your own sequence of photos.
Tip: You can also use this technique to create an animated GIF from a short video. Scroll down to the Optional Step 1 to learn how to start with a video file.


1. Import a series of photos

Open Photoshop and go to File > Scripts > Load Files into Stack.
Click Browse and locate the photos you want to use. While holding down the Shift key, select all the files and click Open.
Click OK to import the photos into a single layered file.

Note that a number of new layers have been created in the Layers panel on the right side of your workspace.
These individual layers will become the frames of the animated GIF.

Optional: Import a video

If you're starting with a short video, you'll first need to convert the frames of the video into individual layers. Go to File > Import > Video Frames to Layers....
Locate and select the video file you want to use and click Open.
Click OK to convert the video frames to a single layered file.
Note: Photoshop may not be able to fully import a video that is too long. Use the options in the Import window to limit the amount of frames imported. You can select to import the entire video, or choose just a segment of the video. You can also limit the amount of frames imported to a set interval, such as every 2 frames.


2. Open the Timeline

Go to Window > Timeline to open the Timeline panel.
Click the arrow on the button in the middle of the panel and select Create Frame Animation. Then click the button to create a new frame animation.


3. Convert layers into animation frames

Click the menu icon from the upper right corner of the Timeline panel. Click Make Frames From Layers.
This will convert all the layers in the Layers panel into individual frames in your animation.

Click the Play button from the bottom of the Timeline panel (or press the Spacebar on your keyboard) to preview the animation.
Note: If your animation is playing in reverse, click the Timeline menu icon again and select Reverse Frames.


4. Set the animation to loop

Click the repeat menu from the bottom of the Timeline panel and select Forever. This will create a looping animation.

Click the Play button from the bottom of the Timeline panel (or press the Spacebar on your keyboard) to preview the animation.


5. Export the animation as a GIF

Go to File > Export > Save for Web (Legacy)...
  1. Select GIF 128 Dithered from the Preset menu.
  2. Select 256 from the Colors menu.
  3. If you are using the GIF online or want to limit the file size of the animation, change Width and Height fields in the Image Size options.
  4. Select Forever from the Looping Options menu.
Click the Preview... button in the lower left corner of the Export window to preview your GIF in a web browser.
Click Save... and select a destination for your animated GIF file.

Congratulations! You have just created your animated GIF. Post it online to show it to the world.
Note that you can also use this technique for any layered Photoshop file.

2017’s Best Online Documentaries About Artists and Creative Process

There are few things more fascinating than the inner workings of an artist’s creative process. Art documentaries not only provide a glimpse into how creative people tick and go about their work, but it can help us understand our own approaches toward making things. They can spark new ideas, and even help us realize that we aren’t alone in our weird ways. Plus, they’re usually entertaining, as is often the case when creatives decide to document other creatives.
The art documentaries below offer snapshots into the lives and work of actors, painters, photographers, sculptors, typeface creators, freelancers in general, and more. This is the year we learned that Jim Carrey is a painter, and that Atlanta’s rap scene prefers to be photographed by a 25-year-old with a film camera. We also saw the launch of new projects by creative-focused companies like WeTransfer, Artsy and AND CO. Our favourite magazines, from i-D to Complex are also hard at work making captivating short films.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, or need to watch something that will get the gear in your brain turning, look no further than our round-up of the best art documentaries in 2017. 

SOLO NYC (Full Film) from AND CO on Vimeo.


AND CO’s SOLO NYC series focuses on a few rising creative freelancers, cutting together interviews that discuss trials and triumphs. New York City, of course, is a famously make-it-or-break-it city, and this series gets into what it takes to live and work there in a creative industry. So far, they’ve spoken with lettering artist Alex Trochut, chef Adriana Urbina, pottery artist Helen Levi, and creative director Zipeng Zhu.


WeTransfer’s The Backstage Sessions

Image is one of the most important things for a musician—it expresses who they are, what they’re like, and what you might be able to expect from their music. In three new short documentaries WeTransfer has spoken to some of the photographers who helped build the image of artists like Marianne Faithfull, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, and more. Check out what David Montgomery, Kevin Cummins, and Gered Mankowitz have to say about shooting some of the biggest names in rock ‘n’ roll.
Jim Carrey: I Needed Color from JC on Vimeo.

Jim Carrey: I Needed Color

Most people know Jim Carrey as a goofball, the star of classic comedies like Dumb & Dumber and The Mask. But he’s shown miraculous depth in his roles, too, dealing with a broken heart (and so much more) in Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind and portraying complex comedian Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon. And what you might not know is that in recent years he’s become incredibly prolific with his painting. I Needed Color lets you into his vivid world.

Jeff Koons: MOCA from Oscar Boyson on Vimeo.

Jeff Koons for MOCA Los Angeles

Artist Jeff Koons has built everything from humongous magenta balloon dogs, to sculptures of Michael Jackson and his monkey Bubbles, to a rainbow BMW race car. Narrated by actor Scarlett Johansson, this doc commissioned by MOCA Los Angeles for their 2017 gala honoring the artist, offers up some biographical info on Koons, the inspirations for some of his work, and interviews with him. And it’s edited with the same punch that his art has.

Buck the Cubicle: Pigment Hunter from P2 Photography on Vimeo.

Buck the Cubicle

Buck the Cubicle is a series from P2 Photography that documents people who “work in various offbeat occupations.” Ever wanted to know what a pigment hunter is, how an ice sculptor works, how someone might hunt with a golden eagle, or what it’s like to be a “professional princess” for a living? Buck the Cubicle has you covered.

Complex’s The Culture

Gunner Stahl is barely a quarter century old, and yet he’s the guy that some of rap and pop’s biggest stars trust to take their photo. For Complex, The Culture gets into why he shoots film, the whirlwind his life has become, and what it’s like to shoot other artists. The Culture continues this series by speaking with all manner of other creatives: music video director Colin Tilley, musician Kaytranada, and jack of all trades Brock Korsan are a few of the others.

The Creator Class Tutorials

Presented by Canon, The Creator Class makes mini-docs that get into the nitty gritty of photographing certain subjects with specific techniques, but they’re beautifully-shot and easy to follow. So far they’ve showcased Mark Sommerfeld, music photographer Vanessa Heins, and Maria Jose Govea, who photographed St. Vincent’s most recent music video.

i-D Meets: Next Gen Photographers

In this documentary, i-D features photographers Campbell Addy, Olivia Rose, and Ronan Mckenzie, following them cross-country and capturing their work in fashion, documentary, and portrait photography. Director Tom Ivin has managed to get some intimate insights into each person’s process.
InFrame - Andrew Harnik from InFrame on Vimeo.

Format’s Inframe

And of course, we had to mention our very own InFrame series. Directed by Bas Berkhout, InFrame profiles a wide range of creative talent and their journey to the top. We’ve spoken with sculptor Cristina Cordova, political photojournalist Andrew Harnik, illustrator Paul Pateman, and many others. You can watch them all here.

Noisey Meets Cam Kirk

In this documentary, Noisey visits hip-hop photographer Cam Kirk, who’s not only shot big names like Gucci Mane, Future, and Young Thug, but has created the iconic images that have come to define those artists.

News from :: NM Photos ::


“She looks into me” is a series of intimate images that hold a deep reverence for a time when the mystery of life and the mystery of death were closely related. Conceived in a manner close to theater this book is divided in 3 chapters that explore the idea of human representation and how looking at an image in an active way can evoke more than what is actually depicted in front of you.
To look at something is undeniably very different from looking into something and this is the genesis of this new work that borrows the title from a poem by Surrealist poet Paul Éluard.
From a necessity of simplification of form/content the author takes the reader in a stream of consciousness relation between each picture choreographed to address a sphere of the immaterial and through subtle and evocative nuances talk about symbolic aspects of the human psyche and how we all relate at some point in our lives.

    She Looks into Me  .  Nuno Moreira
    Softcover with flaps / 84 Pages / 22x28 cm / Incl. supplement with text by Adolfo Luxúria Canibal
    Foreword by M.F. Sullivan, Afterword by Jesse Freeman
    Release Date: January 2018 / Limited Edition of 200 copies / ISBN: 978-989-20-8093-2
    25€ Free worldwide shipping (reduced price until January 31st.)

"In his previous work Nuno sought to «capture» his moments of unconsciousness, whereas in the realization of She Looks into Me, he appropriated the unconscious to strive to represent it, and his work is now much closer to that of the Surrealists.
Life, death, dreams, thoughts, are the raw material. The threads are woven into a play. The pictures are always aesthetic, but it is to make us forget their presence and allow us to focus on the narration which remains interpreted by everyone’s mind. It draws, one chapter after the other, the «being», the «becoming» and the process of deconstruction that follows («unbecoming»).
Consistency remains throughout the book, with recurring patterns that allow us to read a continuum, such as the cycle of life and death, which are, of course, ubiquitous motifs throughout the book. The rhythms change, accelerate and then slow down, before accelerating again. In this book, all the formal elements that constitute it (photos, layout, texts...) disappear at the service of the storytelling.
And finally, the title refers to the perception that Nuno Moreira proposes to us. It is no longer a question of looking at things, but rather of looking into things, in the sense of the original French title of the poem, Elle se penche sur moi, which speaks of being available to understand the other, to find a confidence in him. Where it is about seeing in the other to put his life/love in his/her hands, proof of ultimate confidence, beyond life and death. Then one reads their love, the only one capable of transcending the physical limit of the body, of time, of the wear and tear that reappears in the third part of the book. Death approaches, and then one questions about existence, his own and that of the other, whom we build a relation with."
