    Life. There’s always a way to make it work.

    This woman runs PARLIAMENT with a baby in her lap and she’s CLEARLY doing an outstanding job because she’s still there being a total boss two years later, baby still in her lap.

    "A baby will destroy your career-"

    Really

    Are you sure?

    Because I’m pretty sure that Licia Ronzulli would laugh at that declaration.

  15. How to Make Gifs without Screen Capping

    fallen-sparrow:

    Tutorial: HOW TO MAKE GIFS WITHOUT CAPPING

    ↳ I’ve noticed that nearly all the gif tutorials on tumblr have screen-capping as the 1ststep. When I make my gifs, I do so by opening the video directly in photoshop – no need to cap anything. Here's the process that I use.

    Note: I used PS CS5 extended. I’ve been told that C3 extended, C4 extended and C6 all allow video editing, I do not know about any other versions of photoshop.

    1.  Open your video in photoshop (it must be .MP4, .MOV, .AVI, .MPG, .MPEG or .M4V)  [This is the DW 50th Anniversary]image
      Make sure that you have the animation tool bar set to the timeline feature.
    2. Change your canvas size. I like 245 x 160 for my gifs. When a popup window warns that “some clipping will occur,” click proceedimage
    3. Resize the video layer. You will get a pop up saying that “transforming the video layer requires converting it to a smart object layer” – click “covert.”  I am resizing this video down to 23%, but pick whatever size you want. I like to leave a little bit of the video layer on either end, to prevent weird transparency issues, but do as you like.  image
    4. Coloring: I’ll add my coloring to the video (note that I’ve already gone to the frame in the selection that I want to gif)  image
    5. Sharpen: I’ll also sharpen the gif. The beauty of having the video as a smart object layer is that you can use smart filters. I like to use a combination of smart sharpen and sharpen (set to a lower opacity). image
    6. Selecting Clip. I opened the entire episode in photoshop, so now I have to select the small clip I want to gif. You can use the Go To a Time feature to find a specific part of the video quickly. image

      Find the first frame you want in your gif.  Click on the menu button on the timeline and click “Set Start of Work Area.” Now do the same, find the last frame you want in you gif and select “Set End of Work Area” from the same menu.  image

      At this point, it’s helpful to zoom in on the area you want to gif, using the slide bar at the bottom of the animation tool bar.  image

    7. Saving. Time to save the gif, so to “save for web and devices.” Note: this process will take longer than if you are uploading a gif made of frames, since photoshop has to render the frames. Adjust the settings as you normally would. Ideally at this point your gif is smaller than the upload limit for tumblr (it used to be 1 MB, but now I can upload things that are less than 2 MB if they’re 245 px in width). If it’s too large ( 2 -4 MB) I’ll teach you a work around later. image image
    8. Timing. You can upload the gif as is, but, I find that since Photoshop is sampling every frame, the gifs are too fast for me. So, reopen the gif you just saved. Now you should be in the “frame” view of animation. Select all the frames, and change the frame delay. I tend to double what is already there. (In this example the default is 0.04, and I set it to 0.08). This can require some tweaking though, based on the frame rate intrinsic to the source video, and to personal preference. image
    9. Resave the gif and upload!   image
    • Size work around. Say your initial gif is larger than 2 MB. Go ahead and save it anyways. Now, as in Step 8, reopen the gif in photoshop. 

      Now, what you’re going to do is select every other frame, and delete those. This sounds super time consuming, but I’ve made a photoshop action that automates the process. Download the action here. Load and run the action. It will select all of the even frames in the gif for you.Click “stop” when you get a popup.image Now all the even numbered framed are selected, so just hit delete. Proceed as in Step 7, and change the frame delay. Here, instead of doubling, I tend to make the fame delay about 3 times the default. This can be subject to more tweaking again. Save the gif again, and it should be ~about half as big as before.

    That’s all there is to this technique. I find it a lot faster than capping: it’s done all in photoshop, you don’t have to load all those caps into a stack, and it’s much easier to resize the gif as you go along, and sharpening is made so much easier!

    Let me know if you have any questions!
