About This Class

building on the find that neil sheering found and put into a course for putting an image in your profile i thought i would investigate further and see if even more could be done to raise awareness when people are looking at your bio. i found something neat and put together a proof of concept to see if it would work, if you go to my bio you will now see something like this! :)


pretty neat huh? :) -- (i'm not a designer so i expect yours to be awesome!)

thing you will learn in this course

  • how to make your own animated banner
  • using keynote to export to movie and then to gif
  • file size considerations when making
  • putting your gif into the cloud to load super fast!
  • potential issues with sizing - best sizing we found
  • do the project, custom ones available!

i'm sure you can see that the scope for doing some awesome animated banners here is massive, push them regularly with new courses as part of your monthly output!

once you have the template you'll find it super easy!
