Batch 30 - Animate 10 Images using Animated GIF - Adobe Flash/Fireworks
I have 10 images that I would like converted to animated GIFs. I will provide the initial still image that will be used as a starting point as well as instructions for what I am looking to animate. I need you to take the image and animate it.
The final result should be 10 animated GIFs. Some of the images may start out as PNG or JPEG images.
Make sure that the first frame of the animation looks good all by itself as some people will see that frame only and not see the animation at all.
Maximum size of the image should be 1MB. I would like the size to be as small as practical without any reduction in the quality of the image. So, if you can, try to use variable duration frames as that reduces the size of the animated gif file.
I would like the resulting animated GIF to look as good as possible as far as palette. So, please no optimizing number of colors below 256.
I am somewhat flexible on the exact nature of the animation and the exact nature of the images itself. For example, if necessary, you can remove gradients if that will help with the final result.
I am attaching the actual images along with individual instructions. This ps part of a larger project where I have 20 different batches of images (each batch contains 10 images) that need to be animated.
If you have Adobe Fireworks experience, I think you will find this project much easier than if you do not have Fireworks experience. Fireworks allows you to edit animated GIF images and set duration of each frame quite easily.
