Creating an animation from a picture

First of all, it is worth explaining which program is needed and why:
  • Ulead gif animator- it is necessary for disassembling, assembling, viewing animation and editing the properties of each frame of which the animation consists;
  • Right Click Image Converter- needed to work with individual pictures. With its help, you can change the format of the image and its size, as well as in some formats and image quality;
  • Paint- in fact, it is needed just for drawing and editing images
    I recommend using Paint.Net instead of paint. You can download it from the header



And now we will try to understand all the subtleties and examples.

I will tell you how this animation was created

Attached Image

As you already understood this reworked logo.savagemessiahzine.comwhich was made by me for the "Club without BeBeshnyh"

First you need to download the official logo in any waysavagemessiahzine.com.
Now using the programRight Click Image ConverterIncrease the size of this image to 420x268
This is done like this:
This window should appear.

Attached Image


If the program is taken from the header, then:
  1. Run the program
  2. Click "File"
  3. Select "Add files"
  4. Specify the file we need.
  5. In the "Output" select the format of the saved file - PNG
  6. In the "Resize" put a tick
  7. Select "Percentage"
  8. In two free windows we write 200 and 200
  9. Press the "Convert" button, and then "Ok"

If the program was installed from another resource, then:
  1. On the downloaded image right-click once
  2. Select "Right Click Image Converter"
  3. From the pop-up window, select "Advanced Options".
  4. In the "Output" select the format of the saved file - PNG
  5. In the "Resize" put a tick
  6. Select "Percentage"
  7. In two free windows we write 200 and 200
  8. Press the "Convert" button, and then "Ok"


This is done in order to then paint in Paint not with 3 pixels, but more, that is, if you paint it is not important, then you can make a large pixel size first and then reduce it.
The meaning of the above described manipulations is to choose the pixel size you need for you, with which you will draw later.
Of course, you can cheat like me: wink_kind: first draw the "skeleton" with large pixels, and then, gradually reducing the pixel size, refine the image.

Note and addition to the program

  • If instead of "Percentage" select ..., then there will be a choice of size in pixels
  • You can also convert files immediately and without "Advanced_Options". Just select the desired format in the drop-down box and that's it. Only, by default, it also compresses the weight of the image (not for all formats!) Due to the "quality degradation".
  • There is also a good feature - to convert images into icons for BB. it’s enough to choose the ICO format. Especially effective when there is a screenshoter on the PC, which allows you to select the area of ​​removal.
  • The problem with the JPEG file is that when you save the image, the edges of the parts of the image are broken and then it becomes much more difficult to draw. And with compression, pixel resolution is also reduced ...



Now we need a programPaint:
Basic tools that will be useful

  • eraserAttached Image- for erasing with erase strip selectionAttached Image
  • pipetteAttached Image- to select the color already used in the image
  • pencilAttached Image- for drawing in one pixel
  • scaleAttached Image- to zoom in and out of the entire image. There is a choice of multiplicityAttached Image
  • fillAttached Image- for painting the whole area
  • allotmentAttached Image- to highlight the cut surface


I’m not going to tell you the technique of drawing and editing in Paint, since this is where your “creative beginning” will manifest
In the end, it should be this

Attached Image


But the result can vary widely and depend on your abilities to draw: D
I recommend calling the resulting file_your name_the original, so as not to be confused.


Now, when we have a ready and big logo, we start creating animation.
To do this, we again need a program.Paintand do the following:
We take the file to this end and start to erase with an eraser from the reflectionsavagemessiahzine.comby a little. Thus, creating individual frames of our anima. It is necessary to roughly assume the number of frames of the created animation, because its smoothness and the most important (!) amount of washable surface. After all, the more you erase, the fewer frames, and therefore the transition from frame to frame will be sharper! And also there will be less of your work (which is sometimes necessary) and your animation will weigh less (which is also not unimportant sometimes). Looking ahead to say that the programUlead gif animatorIt is possible to set the time of each frame and you can also play on this in a smooth animation.
You can erase the excess in any order. From this beddet only depend on the order of their assembly in the animation.
Personally, I took the finished file and started from the finished erase, leaving necessary. And so, frame by frame, I turned back to the original picture, comparing it with the one already done. Moreover, I saved the frame after erasing without the word "original" and with numbers in ascending order. So then it is easier to collect animation from these frames.

Here is my archive with the resulting images and the collection of them animation



Compare and perform "Work on Bugs": D


By the way, by the way, the last 3 images(vrodeby)I myself drew. It seemed to me that the ending in the middlesavagemessiahzine.comwould not be gormanichnoy))

Now that we have finished frames of our animation, we need to reduce them to a size that the page understands.savagemessiahzine.com(this is 240x320). We will need againRight Click Image Converter:
We do everything as last time, only at the end of the operation in two free windows we write such a number so that the total size does not exceed the specified limit of 240x320. This number can be driven manually and it may not be an integer.


Here is my archive with compressed files.



Now you can collect the resulting in the final creation.
Make it a disasterUlead gif animatorth Our actions are:

Open the first file without reflection through "open with" and select the programUlead gif animator
This window will open.

Attached Image


Basic tools that will be useful

  1. add frameAttached Image- to add an empty frame in which you can open the desired image
  2. duplicate frameAttached Image- to copy the selected image
  3. delete frameAttached Image- to delete the selected file
  4. transformationAttached Image-to highlight the copy area
  5. select image file and insert as frameAttached Image-to select the file you want to insert
  6. increase and decreaseAttached Image- to increase or decrease the frame when viewing
  7. "progryshny panel"Attached Image- to view the creation
  8. previewAttached Image- to view the creation as if through a browser


Now, when the first file is open, click "add frame", now select "select image file and insert as frame" and in the "add frame" window, look for the file that we want to insert. If you followed my previous advice, then it should be called approximately "_your name_2 ". Select this file and click" Open. "
Well, we already have two frames !!! We perform the previous procedure with all the drawn images, click "zoom in" or "zoom out" and click the Start button in the "launch pad" !!! This way you can preview the image and see the smoothness of the animation.
Now also an important point! Select the speed of each frame:
Click on the first frame with the right mouse button, invoking the context menu in which we select "Frame properties".
As you can see there is such a window.

Attached Image

Just the item "Delay" and selects the frame display time. By default, there we stand "10", which is equal to "0.1" second at the rate of 1/100 second.
For example, I have in the first frame 150, in the next 20 and in the last 300.
This is how the animation speed is set.
Now the animation is ready and to see it as in the browser, click "Preview". At this stage, too, you can see and correct the shortcomings.
Note and addition to the program:

...



Congratulations!!! The animation is ready!

But now you need to save it.
  • Click "File" - "Save As" - GIF file and call the file for example animation.
  • Choosing the right place
  • Click "Save".
  • Click "File" - "Exit" and in the drop-down box about saving the change, click "NO" (!)




Well that's all. If something is not clear, there are errors or there is a desire to add me, then we write to the topic.

Sometimes you need to edit a ready-made gif (change compression, colors, add text, etc.) and I’m not at all like a monster like uled(why not - but I really don’t like all their products, maybe inertia of thinking in terms of adoba ...)I use the program
Gif movie gear
GIF Movie Gear has a very powerful compression engine for animated images. You can edit the entire image as well as individual animation frames. The program is very convenient and simple interface.
Using GIF Movie Gear, you can scale the graphics to create GIF files of the desired size, or you can create animated avatars as well as banners of standard sizes. The program can export and import the following file formats: GIF, AVI, BMP, JPEG, ICO, PNG and Photoshop PSD.
Russian registered

Edit animation

Be sure to read first Creating an animation from a picture
Start with the fact that:
take this animation

Attached Image

Open updesired animationwith helpPaint-a and, through "Save as", save the image, calling it for examplesample
Now you need to decide how the new animation will look like. To do this, click "Selection" and push the picture frame to "more." Now you can freely draw your PC and PDA. Here you have a sample. At the end we save the result by clicking "File">Save, but leave the picture open to work with it!
Note!

  • The background of the resulting image is black. Fixing it is very simple - with the help of a white background fill.
  • Also, for convenience, you can zoom in and out the entire image using the "Scale".
  • And also you can cut and move the necessary fragments with the help of "Selection"



Here is my painted sample

Attached Image

Open updesired animationwith helpPaint-a and through "Save as", save the image, calling it for example _frame_1. Here we have the first frame: rofl: Fill the black background with white fill and drag the emoticon with "O". Decide at once what size the PC will be and accordingly where the girl will stand. Note that the PC will jump a little and the girl will move a little. In order not to be mistaken, I recommend leaving the “bigger” places, and then just moving the “right” with the help of “Selection” and “cutting edges” (having reduced the image, take the “blue squares” in the middle of the image sides and move it)
Blue squares look like this!

Attached ImageAttached Image

Activatesample, select only the PDA, click "Edit">"Copy", activate _frame_1and insert the PDA, moving it to the right place. The frame is ready! Save the result by clicking "File">"Save", but do not close the picture to compare the correct frames. I recommend to have always on handUleadGifAnimatorwithdesired animationto view the correctness of your animation!
Now we again perform the procedure with "save as" and call the image _frame_2 (just in case we make a reserve of the 2nd frame, which we will later re-save)

Now you need to runUleadGifAnimator. We direct the "mouse" ondesired animationand by pressing the right mouse button, in the context menu that appears, click on "Open with" and selectUlead gif animator.
Select "2: frame"
Click "Transformation" and click on the picture. A framing frame should appear.
Click "Edit">"Copy" and activatePaint_frame_2
note: instead of ... "Transforming" ... you can first click "File" ->"Save as"->"image frames" and then immediately open the desired framePaint th
ATPaint-e press click "Edit" and "Paste." As you can see the second frame is inserted. We remove it while aside so as not to interfere.
It should turn out somehow

Attached Image
Attached Image
Attached Image


Now we fill the black background with white and through the “selection” cut out only the girl. Move it to its rightful place next to the CCP.
The remaining trash is successfully cut out B) Now you need to add a hand. This can be done either by cutting and editing the resulting, or by drawing a hand completely.
I warn you in advance!

It is very important to look at the slightest change in the picture and duplicate it in the same way, otherwise it will be a "twitchy" smile. For example, in the fourth frame, the girl promotes the CCP. Be careful!

Here you have the second frame!
Now we re-save it via "Save", agreeing to a replacement and save it via "Save As" to create a working version _frames_3
And so, frame by frame, constantly looking back and rechecking what we got, we redraw the whole animation.
Ready animation!

Attached Image


As you already understood, you can change any animation and in any volume!
Personally, I advise you, before creating your animations, to change “for yourself” at least one animation

If, nevertheless, there is a desire to teach some techniques of work in other programs, then the method should be described in detail and supplemented with screenshots!

Creating layers in animation

Before reading this post, read the cap and previous tutorial posts.
In order to learn how to work with layers, we need a program.Paint.NET.3.36
Add "I BBB" on the background of the animation we have fixed.
Looking ahead, I’ll say that in the end there will be three layers: the girl herself with a PDA and a PC, YABBB and a white background.
Selection of advantages of Paint.NET.3.36:

  • open images do not open in different windows, but in one;
  • There is a quick access to recently viewed (drawn) images through the "File>Open the recent ";
  • there is a very large history of committed actions;
  • Added a quick call of tools on the "English layout";
  • Added window call using F5-F8;
  • now when choosing a tool, its additional property is selected;
  • it is possible to "strongly" zoom in and out of the image;
  • approximation and distance can be made by twisting the mouse wheel while pressing the "Ctrl" key;
  • added ruler and its three units of measurement (pixel, inch, centimeter);
  • it is possible to turn on the grid (split the image into auxiliary squares);
  • it is possible to change the size of the image in percent or change the size of the sides, keeping the image proportions or not, with the choice of resolution;
  • it is possible to change the size of the canvas;
  • there is a reflection or inversion of the image;
  • there is work with layers (duplication, creation, deletion, movement, association, import);
  • you can rotate and scale the layer;
  • it is possible to change the transparency of the layer;
  • You can make a variety of image adjustments;
  • It is also possible to add simple effects.


To begin with we get our "storyboard" girl and open the first frame using Paint.NET. Through "Save As" save it with the name, for example"BBB"
Now through the "Edit">"Select All" select the entire image and by pressing "Delete" on the keyboard, delete everything. Take the "Fill" and fill everything in white. We leave with saving the result. This is done to create a background for letters. Congratulations!!! Now you have the first layer!
Now open the first frame using Paint.NET. and through "Save As" we save it with any name that you can understand. Take the "Magic Wand" ... and select the area next to the girl.
Click "Delete" on the keyboard.
Now you have a second layer.
We debug Paint.NET aside and open the image."BBB"for drawing letters using Ulead GIF Animator.
For this:

Activate the "Text Tool" and click on the image. A "Text Input Window" will open in which we write the desired text with the necessary attributes. The letter "I" and "BBB" I wrote separately, and then put them in place.
If you want to make an animation with changing the color of the text, like mine, then you need to immediately make three drawings. It would be more correct to name them "red", "blue" and "green"

Addition to the program Ulead GIF Animator:

In order to activate the text, select "Text Tool" on the toolbar of the program.
Now once click on the picture and the "Text Input Window" appears. It has “Font”, “Size”, the standard choice of writing text in bold, italicized, underlined, crossed out, or just text encircling, there is also a choice of location, text color and choice of writing text vertically or horizontally ...
Now more about each function (I will not talk about simple things).
In order not to include every font on look, we do this: we write what we want and click OK, now we are looking for a font in the top control panel, we make a choice, close it and now just turn the mouse wheel! As you can see, every movement of the mouse wheel is accompanied by a change of font.
After you have selected the desired font, you need to return to further editing the text. This can be done in two ways:
1) on the control panel click "object" - "text" - "change text"
2) select the written text. To do this, we hover the cursor on the text until a small "K" appears on the cursor and click. Now we call the context menu by pressing the right mouse button, and select "text" - "change text"
It is possible to view written on the frame. To do this, click "Preview".
Change text color:

For such a necessary function in the "Text entry window" click on such a rectangleAttached Image. its color does not matter, since it becomes colorized in the color of the last applied color.
    In the pop-up window there is:
  • pointer color Ulead;
  • pointer color Windows;
  • symbol color;
  • background color;
  • two color gradient








Now you have a third layer.

And now we will collect all the layers in one image using Paint.NET.
Open the first frame of our animation using Paint.NET and select "Layers">"Import from file". In the drop-down "Open" window, select the path to the desired file and the file itself. Open the white background and text. I warn you immediately that if you decide to make a "flashing color" of the text, then first select the necessary frames for the desired color! Personally, I tried empirically.
Paint.NET add-on

Pay your attention to a couple of pleasant moments:
When choosing "Fill" we look at the menu of additional functions. By passing all there is:
"Fill" -Attached Imageresponsible for drawing the background;
"Sensitivity" -Attached Imageresponsible for filling "close in color" pixels. Than "Sensitivity" is less, the fill will be more modest
When you select "Magic Wand", additional functions also appear, but I also assign a separate place for "Sensitivity", as it allows you to select the number of "close" similar in color to the selected one.
Also in "Tools" there is such an interesting thing as "Gradient", which I am sure you will understand yourself.
And pay attention that you can twist not only the entire image, but also its separately selected part. You can not only twist, but also increase, decrease, rotate, etc.
To see more details go to the "Layers" ->"Rotate and scale"



Now we see three of our pictures with ticks in the Layers window. Checkboxes are responsible for displaying a layer on the desktop, if the checkmark is enabled, and vice versa. There is also a blue selection of a picture that shows which layer you are working with. The layers are arranged in a certain order - in that order they will be visible, that is, that layer, which at the very top will be visible in front of all the layers.
To move layers up and down you need to click the button "Move layer up" and "Move layer down".
In the image we are editing, there should be a layer with the girl and the PDA on top, then the text and the last white background. Ticks should be on all layers.
Now you need to collect the resulting layers into one image. We do this using the "Unite with the next layer" button. Combines the selected layer with the bottom. Repeat this procedure once more! Now we have one image put together.
Through "Save As" we save the resulting file in the right place, with the desired name and PNG extension.
Well that's all! One shot is ready! By analogy, we do the rest and collect them into animation using Ulead GIF Animator. (method describedhere)
Here is my result:
