About This Class
The Animated Gif is more popular and prevalent than ever, with practical applications in the tech, fashion and art worlds. Named “word of the year” by Oxford English Dictionary in 2012, the humble graphic interchange format has been part of our cultural vernacular since its debut in 1987.
This class, taught by LA-based Web Agency THE CURRENT SEA, will show you the basics of constructing different types of animated gifs in Photoshop.
Through the course of our five learning units, you will create an animated gif portfolio, which you will hone through peer and instructor feedback.
Not only will this portfolio give you a leg up as a designer, it will help you glean the very building blocks of animation itself!
