here kids, a lil pack of 4 PSDs that resemble various screens on the instagram app. username, time posted, #s of posts/followers/following, description, URL, and caption are all editable layers; spaces for pictures are left transparent.
aha its a pretty lazy process but hell yeah lets go
first up im using photoshop, so although the steps are probably pretty similar in other drawing programs, they might not transfer exactly like this
youll want to make three different layers at first, one for the message or writing youre trying to animate
then go ahead and write whatever you want on that first layer. THEN, set the opacity of that one to about thirty or so
, and on the layer right above it, just write the same thing right over the top of it. its alright if the lines dont match up EXACTLY, but youll obviously want to try to get it pretty close
do this once more, until three separate layers have the same message message written in mostly the same way
then theres probably a way around this, but i just bring it to image ready, where i can actually save it as a working gif
then the animation ! youll have one frame per layer, each one set at however fast youll want them to change - i usually set them at 0.2 but you can mess with it until it looks the way you want
THIS is what youre going to click to save it, instead of just save - otherwise it wont set it as an actual gif
you did it
There you go :>
there it is theres the way around that
HEY WRITER FRIENDS
there’s this amazing site called realtimeboard which is like a whiteboard where you can plan and draw webs and family trees and timelines and all that sort of stuff. you can also insert videos, documents, photos, and lots of other things. you can put notes and post-its and, best of all, you can invite other people to be on the board with you and edit together!!
this is really really awesome and a great tool for novel planning, so if you’re doing nanowrimo…. this could be good for you!!
Here’s a handy dandy color reference chart for you artists, writers, or any one else who needs it! Inspired by this post x
