Hair angst
My plan for today was to learn how to make gifs in Photoshop. After watching lots of tutorials and playing around with PS I think I cracked it! (yay I love holiday time!).

Trying to get the quality within the 1mb, 500px limits on Tumblr proved to be quite the challenge.

I decided to experiment with something close to my heart - hurt!Sam with his hurt and angsty hair. :D

concrit very welcome. Only way to learn...

I reckon the penultimate one should be captioned "Not the hair! Anything but not the hair!"
Got to love the Samhair of Angst.

Ha! Yeah! One way to get his hair cut...;)

Sammy hair angst is a thing of beauty...*G*

I saw this on Tumblr first and liked the layout you chose. And I loved the clip of the first one (here). I'd never seem that one before. Lovely group of hurty Sam!

LOL hurt angst hair!!!!!

I know nothing about gif making (wah) so I can't offer any concrit sadly. The subject matter is A++++++++++ though.

ha! Sam's hair calls to me. ;)

I have to say, once I figured it all out it's not so hard. I thought PS would be impossible but it ended up being pretty easy.

I can't gif to save my life; you have totally rocked Sam's hair-angst! And it is delicious...

These are great! I love how his now overgrown bangs just slip forward in that second one :)

Thanks for all the pretty!
25th-Apr-2013 12:16 pm (UTC)
It was that second one that prompted me to do this. I love that moment so much...
25th-Apr-2013 09:41 am (UTC)
Lol. Love how in the first gifs he is like: "Oh, no. They got my hair. Not my hair!" And in last gif: "I made it through. They tried. I suffered. But it's still there, my hair." ;D
I'm really beginning to enjoy your gif posts... more! MORE!! :D

Are the frames part of the LJ post or the gifs? I like them.

25th-Apr-2013 12:18 pm (UTC)
I tossed around the order of the pics - not really sure how I settled on this order. I like your idea so I'll take that! :)

The borders are a html code. I'm not sure (yet) how to put a border on the actual gif. It can be done in PS, but I haven't figured that one out yet...;)

one of these days I might be able to figure out Photoshop for my anis as well, so far? no luck *is with stupid when it comes with PS & anis*

They are SO addictive! Who would have thought.

I've been playing a lot with Photoshop and I am FINALLY! getting the hang of it. Now I want to make everything really pretty - so back to the tutorials!
