About This Class

In this Class you will learn Step-by-Step how to make a Simple Before and After Comparison Animation inside Adobe Photoshop.


It takes a bit of time to set it up, but once you have it ready you can easily reuse it again by simply swapping out the images with new ones (Smart Objects), and you have your new Comparison Animation ready.

This is a really great technique to show your Before and After Design work here at Skillshare.
After the basic version, I will show a more advanced version, this will require a bit more steps to set up, but like the basic version, once you have created it, you can reuse it again and again to create Simple but Effective Motion Graphics.
