If you dream of creating your animation, Photoshop is one of the best tools for this task. Photoshop allows you to create animations using photos and graphics. In this article, we will take a step-by-step look at how to create a simple animation from scratch in Photoshop. And to create complex animations, we invite you to take Photoshop courses online at the GoMother school. The first lesson is free!

Step 1: Create a new file

Before you start creating the animation, open a new file in Photoshop. Choose the file size and resolution you want for your animation.

Step 2: Add your photos and graphics

Add your photos and graphics to your file. Use Photoshop tools to fix your photos and add effects to the graphics you want to use in your animation.

Step 3: Create animation frames

The next step is to frame your animation. To do this, you need to create a separate layer for each frame of your animation. On each layer, change the position and/or size of the elements to create a motion effect.

Step 4: Create the animation

Once you’ve created the animation frames, you need to create the animation itself. To do this, open the Timeline tab in Photoshop and create a new frame on each layer. For each frame, set the time it will be displayed in the animation.

Step 5: Check the animation

Check the created animation by opening the “Animation” tab in Photoshop. Review your animation to make sure it works as it should.

Step 6: Save the animation

The last step is to save your animation. Choose the format in which you want to save your animation (eg GIF or MP4) and save it to your computer.
