Want to spruce up your blog or website with cute, animated GIFs? Ever needed the perfect reaction GIF for that one meme you love? (We've all been there.) Take this class to learn how you can make one yourself! I'll take you through the entire process of animating hand-drawn characters and lettering in Photoshop, from rough test runs to exporting. It's a lot easier than you might think!

This class is focused solely on learning basic GIF animation, not on designing and drawing characters. That being said, if you don't feel confident in your character drawing skills, you can simply create animated text!

So let's get started and make some GIFs!
