About This Class

If you don't already know, you can't simply post a GIF to Instagram. You have to do some special "magic" to it first. In this class, you'll learn how to do that magic in Photoshop.

In this class you'll learn how to:
• create a simple animation in Photoshop using layers, masks, and the timeline panel
• prepare the file for posting to Instagram
• transferring and posting the file to Instagram

This class is best if you have at least a tiny bit of experience in Photoshop.

You can choose to create your own file or you can download the Photoshop sample files and practice creating this animation:
