Okay, here is an action to sharpen all the frames of your .gif for the above type of smart sharpening. BE WARNED THOUGH - this works only on HD/720p/1080p videos, if it’s lower quality it looks gross.
- To load, download the file, then save it wherever you want.
- In photoshop, click ‘load actions’ in the drop down menu for actions.
- Find and select the file you downloaded.
- Press play!
P.S. Do not delete any frames of the .gif before using this, it won’t work.
P.P.S. Check my gif tutorial for info on how I make .gifs. I’m not sure this will work if you make them by importing single caps, rather than importing video frames to layers.
I’ve been meaning to update my first tutorial for a while now since I feel I’ve learned a lot since then. In this tutorial I will cover what I covered in the first along with where to find HQ Logoless downloads, how to convert .mkv files, sharpening, tips to reduce the size of your gif, and whatever else pops into my head along the way.
Thank you so much! As for making gifs, I’ve posted tutorials here, though I’ve been thinking of updating them as I feel I’ve learned more since those were posted.
Also have a look at these other wonderful tutorials:
I hope that helps. :)
I hope that helps those of you who are asking about where we get our screencaps. As for .psd colorings, you could ask one of us (be specific!) or check out Fuck Yeah Resources.
@anon: Unfortunately there’s no easier way to sharpen .gifs. You have to sharpen them one at a time. When you make other frames visible and stay on on the first frame and layer it tends to screw things up because you’re not going back to make them not visible.
Here’s how I sharpen:
@chorelle: Yay! I was working on another one, but got stuck, so I’ll try to finish it tomorrow. I couldn’t tell you, but it would be really adrobs and then Damon and Elena can go be together and the fandom could be happy again. They’re really bumming me out.
@anon: You’re welcome. I’m glad they helped! :)
Sorry, but what is an ediction? :/
If you can explain more, i’d be happy to help.
Just a thought, but you should activate your ask box, as it is easier for me to go into more detail.
OH OH OH! YES, THAT COULD DEFINITELY BE IT!
Obviously I wasn’t awake enough to remember this little quirk of CS5!
It’s delightful! /sarcasm
Above is the Windows explanation, sort of, I think. IDK, but once you said 64 bit I remembered. Maybe this will work for you too. I hope!
CS5 comes defaulted as operating in 64-bit mode. What you have to do is change it to 32-bit mode, it gives a lot more options to play with, including opening videos as avi. I’m sure this can be sort of translated to Windows, I’m just not sure exactly what all the specifics are. Anyway, here are the steps…
I’m so hoping this is the problem.
Let there be miracles!
OH, and anon, and whoever else tries this, let me know if it worked. I’d really appreciate it! THANK YOU!
You can either queue it and then edit or publish then edit.
I don’t know of any tumblrs that solely make .psds. I’m sure there are, but I haven’t come across them.
These are the only people I can think of off the top of my head. I hope that helps.
