Making a gif banner seems a bit hit and miss- the lowest down one is the best one I’ve managed to make so far, but I’m still not 100% happy with it so I’m going to keep experimenting until I get it right. Also it turns out RedBubble only accept PNG or JPEG for their site banners so I’ll have to do something else for it. I do want to get to grips with this process though and I would like a new gif banner for this blog, so I will keep tinkering!
I am making a Redbubble account to sell some of my designs on, as all my work has been cancelled due to Covid19- I would prefer to print my designs onto products first i.e. via screen printing at 3rd Rail Print Space, but it is shut due to the pandemic and I need a form of income during this time.
I was playing around on Photoshop with the aim of making a banner for my Redbubble shop and to replace the gif banner currently on this blog. It was going to be a larger version of the one I already use, but as I was messing around on Photoshop I came across a way to make the text 3D, which I did, and then began playing around to animate it- resulting in this. I watched a few Youtube videos, but mostly just figured it out as I went.
Given it is my first time using the 3D functions on Photoshop and given how long ago I made the first gif I am really pleased with how this turned out, however I am working on it further as I want it to be a little bit slower (so it is easier for people to read) and I want it to flow a little better and look less clunky, so I’m going to keep working on it!
