I was starting to get the hang of things here so this one is not the greatest. I didn’t use a tripod so the footage was really shaky and I couldn’t figure out what to do. Another tutor helped me work through the problem. He showed me how to line up each layer then crop close to the highlighter so it would reduce the shakiness. This ultimately took me about an hour to line all 17 layers together. I lowered the opacity of the layer that I wanted to move, then used the pervious layer as the base. I cropped a close as I could without losing the highlighter.
Next I ran into the problem of quality once I went to save the GIF through the “Save as Web” section. After Spending a good 20 minutes of the hour trying to figure this out. But I came to the conclusion that it was probably Photoshop cutting out the data in order for it be web optimized. This took me about 2 hours to complete
But here is the final product! I’m actually really happy with it besides the splotchy colors.
Accumulated time: 6 hours
