The GIF


No matter how you pronounce it, animated GIFs are making a splash on social media. A GIF is a fun, creative way to connect with your audience and make a splash on your page.

Idea.

My dog Tucker's age hasn't caught up to him yet. He is still excitable and active like a puppy, especially when you mention the word "walk," as we did in this video.

Creation.

I filmed this video on my iPhone 6. Before I edited it, the video was 40 seconds long. I followed Tucker as he spun around and ran to look out the window.

Editing.

I edited the video to a GIF style using Adobe Photoshop for every sixth frame. I tested different qualities and sizes and was satisfied with the final product above. Enjoy Tucker twirling on repeat!
