How to Make Gifs Out of Videos by IrisVampyria How to Make Gifs Out of Videos by IrisVampyria
- Hi there.

This is a tutorial I made for making gifs on Photoshop CS3 or 4. I'm not sure if the process works the same way on older versions with Image Ready. You can try though and maybe tell me about it.

It took me some time and dedication to learn all this by myself. I hope this trick works for you too. It's not easy to do it and it also requires patience from you. Although, the final result is very good and you feel glad you actually did it :)

- Since I realised to many people yould like to learn this, I tried it myself and that's the way I do my gifs from now on. There's also another trick, made with Windows Movie Maker, created by my friend :icondarknessfadesaway: on EvThreads. She hasn't a tutorial on it though, but she's very good at graphics.

The only thing I have to say now is that I hope you enjoy the tutorial, leave your comments, if you have any problem with any step on the tutorial or any doubt, please don't hesitate to send me a note.

You can see the gif I created on this tut: [link]

Íris Santos.

I downloaded YTD for this, I converted the vid into a .MOV
but when I open Photoshop and try and open it, it says:
"could not complete your request becase QuickTime Version 7.1 or later is required"
I got QuickTime player so why isnt it working D:

I'm having trouble with YoutubeDownloader too. You can use this site to download video though: [link]
Then when you finish downloading, you can use Youtube Downloader to convert it if you need to :)

Hope I helped.

I can just tell you it works!
Most people just keep looking for other tuts because this one requires you to download Youtube Downloader, I guess. But all I'm sure is that it really works!

Ahahah, thanks! It gave me some work :D
Maybe it's because people are looking for easy ways of making gifs. When they see it's not that easy they leave the page. I also tried to find a easy one, but it was impossible, really.

Thanks for the comment and the fave «333
