KCBW2012: Something a bit different!

 (3KCBWDAY5)

 Today is already day 5 of Blog Week! Amazing, isn't it, how time flies! I have been enjoying all your blogposts a lot so far, and we've still got two days of blogging to go! Today's topic is always my favourite, because it gives so much space to create something fun and unexpected. Let's see today's description:

"This is an experimental blogging day to try and push your creativity in blogging to the same level that you perhaps push your creativity in the items you create.There are no rules of a topic to blog about but this post should look at a different way to present content on your blog."

I've decided to push my creativity to a new high, Photoshop-wise. I taught myself how to make an animated gif, just for you guys! Oh, the ordeals I go through just for this blog.  It was fun to do, and surprisingly simple! Here it is. Enjoy!




(tiny edit: oh my gosh, thanks for all the wonderful comments! My mailbox hasn't been this busy in ages! If you really like my post, you can always nominate me for.. eh, I don't think there's a title involved. Just goodies. So this is a really selfish edit, really. But thanks anyway!)

    1. It's actually deceptively easy. If you know how to make layers in photoshop, you're good to go! Here's a tutorial that explains roughly how I did it: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/quick-photoshop-cs5-tutorial-create-animated-gifs/
