About This Class

Create Amazing Cinemagraphs / Animated GIFs Using Multiple Photos in Adobe Photoshop! 

Various advertising firms, individuals, organizations, and businesses use cinemagraphs and animated GIFs in order to get more followers and attention on social media.

Photographers design cinemagraphs for their clients as an added service or feature.

In this course, you'll learn how to use photos from camera burst mode in Adobe Photoshop to create cinemagraphs and how to export them as animated GIFs or video. You'll learn how to automatically stack images in layers, mask layers, and use the timeline panel.

Be sure to post your animated GIFs or cinemagraphs in the projects area and download the support files if you want to follow along. If you need more help with getting started in Photoshop, check out my beginner's guide to Photoshop and my course on Photoshop's tools here on Skillshare as well.

I love seeing students succeed in their designs, writings, productions, and careers!

I'm currently a full-time university professor of graphic design and digital journalism. I've taught classes on design, photography, and writing for the past eight years. My university students have become full-time, award-winning photographers, web designers, creative specialists, reporters, and layout designers. 

And now, you can learn from me as well!

Get started by enrolling in my courses and learning new skills. I've worked as internet development director at an award-winning advertising design firm, as managing editor at two graphic design magazines, as webmaster at a regional newspaper, and have been a freelance graphic designer and writer for the past 20 years. I have a B.A. in Communication, an M.A. in Journalism and Media Studies, and a Ph.D. in Communication.

My combination of professional real world experience, formal education, and experience in teaching have all enabled me to produce quality courses that help students become better at digital media and communication.
