JOKES. I just Googled it, and it means "Graphics Interchange Format", and you can read more about it here. But that's way too boring.
Today I'll show you guys how I make mine. I'm an amateur, by the way. Don't expect profeshness.
Download Photoscape. It's a free photo editing program, and one of my favourites. The user interface is simple and clean. Photoscape is a small file, won't mess up your computer, and it's easy to use. Cons: it might be too simple for some hardcore camwhores, who like to Photoshop themselves into different looking people. Photoscape has the bare minimum, but with creativity and a quick wrist, one can turn any boring old photo into something completely cool. For example (click to enlarge):
Take lots of pictures. Buy a tripod if necessary. Or.. have someone gift you one (; Thanks Wendy and family!
Currently, I take all my own outfit and camwhore photos using an old Cyber-shot digital camera (my mom's old cam heh) and this Dynex 'Digital Series' tripod. Once I have the money, I will be purchasing a DLSR, you can bet on it. Might take me more than a couple years though... I'm just.. broke right now. ANYHOO.
Use your Photoscape!!! Create some sweet images with the Editor. Once you have your images, click on the 'Animated GIF' option on either the header or the icons on the homepage.
Now.. onto the.. most.. awfully.. terribly... EASY STEP OF THEM ALL. MUAHAHAHAH. Cough. Okay, because Blogger somehow can't support the '.gif' image format, I upload every one of my animated GIFs onto Tinypic and then post them on my blog.
Use this HTML code to put the images into your Blogger. You'll have to click the 'Edit HTML' button next to the 'Compose' button to put the code in (remember to replace DIRECTLINKFORLAYOUTS with your image's direct link!):
AND VOILA. You've made your first (or first few) animated GIFs. Congrats! Are you not as obsessed with em as I am?!!!!
Okay, nightie night, my lovelies. I'm headed to Harrison Hot Springs today. I.. will sleep in the car.
