0 Create Your Own Animated GIFs for Website and Blog

GIFs are the best way to put small animation or slide instead of using full video for small representation. We can also call it as a small video which guides quickly to a user about what's there inside. Whether it is a simple how-to or a funny animation, GIFs attract quick attention and gives superb look to online pages.

You can use these custom made GIFs in social site comments, websites and many other online places. Following are some of the easiest ways to create your own GIFs.

Adobe Photoshop - Small video to animated GIFs

Photoshop is probably the root for editing images and videos. It is professionally used for designing purpose, still, for creating an animated gif it works simply best.

Launch Photoshop > Go to File Import Video frames to layers. Now go to Windows Animation and it will show the frames created from a video.

You can edit frames, crop window; adjust delay and other parameters easily. Use the rectangular marquee tool to re-frame the area you wish.

Now go to File Save for web & device > select GIF from a list and click Save.

Prerequisite: You need to install Apple's QuickTime to enable this in Photoshop.

Online Applications

Online apps such as gifmaker.me/, imgiflip.com, makeagif.com, picasion.com, gimp.org are available to create GIFs but a major disadvantage of many of them are they put their link hovering on gif file to advertise their brand. Still few of them are completely free and worth using. If you Google "free online gif maker", you will get plenty of results working.

Programs such as Video converter tool works great if you wish to do it on your computer and not online. Much precisely you can edit window dimensions, frames delay and better quality with a program. If you have big file size to convert into gifs this program will work simply perfect.

For much professional work softwares such as Falco GIF Animator, Photoscape, GiftedMotion, KickMyGraphics, Any To GIF, Free GIF Animator, SSuite Gif Animator, Photobie, GifApp, XylemStudio's, AnimateGif are among famous ones. If you need more info on these softwares visit Listoffreeware.com

Simple Yet Powerful Animations for Online Advertising - Using Software

If you have series of images created which looks simple but will animate fantastic like below sample, again Photoshop will make if for you easily.

Open Photoshop > Click File Scripts > click "Load Files Into Stack".  Select Browse and select files to create GIF.

If you do not have series of images already created, you can still create them into Photoshop using new layer method. Probably this is an accurate way so that window dimensions and another parameter of images stay intact.

Once selected image layers are opened you can edit them, put into correct sequence. Select ‘Window’ from the top menu and select 'timeline'. In timeline window click 'Create Frame Animation'.

Now select all the layers and click menu from timeline screen. In the dropdown list click on
'Create a new layer for each new frame'. Click on the 'Make Frames From Layers'

From the bottom of each frame choose the delay and repeat loop options if you want. (Loop is to select how many times you want an image to appear). (Delay will set the time period you want to display an image before next image proceeds)

You can preview your work and save it for web applications. Go to File Save for Web.

In Save for the Web window, you need to choose options such as to keep GIF file size and quality proper.

0 Are Technical Developments Becoming An Unavoidable Addiction?

Sometimes I get tired of these so-called advanced technologies and science things. Last week I just found myself trapped in wires and gadgets on my bed in the early morning. Is it really helping us? Certainly, there are two sides of every argument. 

Looking at current technical developments, it seems we could be in real mess sooner. We often notice ourselves surrounded by wires, SIM cards, adapters, CDs, DVDs etc. Whether it is mobile, headphones, smart cards, laptops etc, these things are always around us.

In the process of making things better, quicker and faster we are trying to unnecessary push us towards a complicated technological trap. Have you noticed a latest fact that without internet connections and your devices, we feel we are going to be in some kind of trouble? Have you ever tried to stay away from all of these for the week or at least for few days? The answer is nothing but a horror.

Recent data reveals the road accidents have been increased in larger percentages due to texting, calling and surfing while on the driving. That is the reason in most of the countries their government has banned the usage of electronic devices while on driving. Most of the times we use these devices just to entertain ourselves or for our little ones. Once you are addicted to wi-fi, it is very difficult to stay offline.

Virtual Assistance

So many tools such as Google instant advice, auto correction in word and smartphones, grammar assist often helps you to be absolutely perfect, but still, it limits in improving your own thinking capabilities.

Thinking positively there are much more benefits than limitations. Such as finding information over the internet, reading short texts, auto corrected grammar in a word, speed networking, surfing, 3g, 4g networks, high definition audio and videos and multimedia etc. Not only that, with a concise and smart use of internet and latest gadgets you can work seamlessly and efficiently.

It’s been observed that youngsters and even old aged people often try to interact with someone new out there online. As if they will soon land up in connection with a cute stranger (he/she). Practically it rarely happens and they waste a lot of their time and energy in doing the same activity repeatedly. E.g. chatting with strangers online - yahoo messenger.

One of the most arguable debates is online piracy. Copying, stealing, and piracy are often found with online things. The most important are to create original and concise articles or report. People keep fighting with each other for their content. But surely there is a difference between just copying, just spinning, referring in detail, taking a guide, having knowledge from other's sources etc. In short, we should keep respect for others originality and creativity. That’s it!

In short, although the world is moving towards some extraordinary developments in technology, there are always some side effects of those. We must ensure to use them wisely and patiently and also never to go with just flow and get addicted to them.
