Let the beauty flow within. by dragonfly-oli Let the beauty flow within. by dragonfly-oli
My first animation. Please don't be rude!
I took 11 photos and combined them to a .gif
I'm quite proud of it, because it's my first animation.
anyways, does anyboy know how to convert an avi-file to gif?

Do you like it? (I also did 3 more, would you like to see them?)

i love how the mood of this photo is kind of in between hopeful and sad...i mean, that's how it affects me. i think the gif really reflects Earth's simplicity and the true beauty of nature that so few people recognize nowadays.
the focus on the for and background was also exceptionally well done- i also loved how there was some blur in the picture, unlike many pictures where there is no contrast at all.
overall, very good start for your animated pictures!! i think, and many people were surely agree, you definitely do more of these! great job oli !!
What do you think?

Taking, no. But I mean make some yourself; cropping the images down to show only a fraction of photos like an individual flower or other specific points you choose. Showing whole photos would be too much for 50x50 px. But if not, that's still okay. :D

very good, it's so lively!

most movie files can be imported into photoshop as an animation, and can then be exported as gif ( :
how did you get this to a gif?

Well, I do not have photoshop.. :( That's why I was wondering how other people do it.
I did a series of 11 pictures and put them together in Photoscape.

well it's pretty much the only way i know to get movie files into gifs :/

but this is really good though, with Photoscape (which i haven't heard of!)

I really like your idea and I think it could be a beautiful gif to look at.
But I think it would be better to have your camera on a tripod to keep it steady. This way all the movement is from the grass instead of camera shake.
I don't say this to be rude, just a little tip...

Many people told me this tip, and I will do that later. Unfortunately I did not have a tripod with me.. ^^;
