Your animations are really good. I would like to know how to do that. Does anyone know of any good tutorial for PS7?

Thanks.
Sharon

Hi Sharon
as you may have read I know little about using ps7 (image ready) to animate with.... I'm used to animation shop... hope someone can point us at a good tutorial....

That said... I gave it a try last night....
If you don't know an animation is really just a slide show...

I haven't discovered how to put one together slide by slide within image ready yet ....
but there is another way that works......

first work on the individual shots in ps7...

one way is to bring up the pic you want to animate.... use "save as" to save it as the 1st frame in a new folder you create... an empty one...
I like to use letters.... a b c and so on..... numbers can make it more difficult past 9 ...
then ...modify the frame.... some....
then save thats as B
more modifying... then save as C..... and so on...

put nothing else in the file .... but the frames

2 or 3 frames is good to start
close all photos..

then go to image ready ( shift ctrl M ) or... file/jump to/image ready..

once there ...

file / import / folder as frames .... and locate the file with your work..


toward the bottom of the left tool bar there is a "preview document" icon .. (next to the e of explorer).... click that to view the animation... click it again to stop it.you have to stop it to edit the animation..

well ... hope that gets your foot in the door...

to save it ... use ... file / save optimized as for now... not in the same file though ... if you are going to make more alterations...
you'll see...

let me know if you get hung up...

have fun
RonDon

Thanks RonDon. I printed it out, and I'll probably give it a try tomorrow. Looks like fun.

Hi Ed... well I like it... often if you are doing a restoration or something and keep saving the progress as different letters it nice to set back on your break and animate the steps taken...
too big a file to post anywhere.. but nice.

A tutorial for ImageReady to make animations

Sharon, I just downloaded this tutorial and am starting to look it over -- not sure how different ImageReady is in the different PShop versions, but am hoping that this tutorial will get me started in the right direction.

The tutorial is good -- don't judge it by my first attempt -- my eye looks more like it's twitching than winking I'll just have to practice with my new toy!
