In this Photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to create an animation for the background.
In the future, you can use this technique to make a banner or logo on the site.
Create a new document. 350×350 px with white background.
Open the picture you’ll cut in Photoshop. Place it in the center of your document.
The picture should be smaller than the document itself.
Set the Rulers as follows (divide into four equal parts).
To make this tool active click CTRL + R or View> Rulers (View – Rulers)
Take the tool and create a selection around the top left of the image.
Then click Ctrl + J, to copy the selection to a new layer.
The same can be done Layer> New> Layer via Copy (Layer – New – copy to new layer)
Now go back to the main image and do the same with each square. At the end simply delete the layer with the image.
For each piece of the picture, apply the following styles:
Layer> Layer Style> Blending Options (Layer – Layer Style – Blending Options)
Then click Ctrl + T or Edit> Free Transform (Edit – free transformation) and apply this tool to each piece. Deploy them in some unique way.
Now leave only one layer visible in the background (here it is layer 3)
Click Shift + Ctrl + M to send data to ImageReady.
There, just like in Photoshop, there will be a working window, but besides this you will see another strip for frames.
In the working window, drag the image to the upper right corner so that only a small corner remains visible.
Then click the button Duplicates current frame (Create a duplicate of the current frame), which is in the window with frames.
After that, drag the image in the working window again to the desired location.
Select these two frames and click on the button. Tween (Add intermediate frames).
In the Tween window, set the following settings:
Start with: Selected frame
Add frames: eight
Layers: All Layers
After OK your frames will quickly multiply. If you click on the button Play (Play), it will turn out like this:
Next on the last frame, make another layer visible in the palette and perform the same actions. So with every bite.
When you are ready, go to the menu File> Save Optimized As … (File – Save optimized as …)
Here is the result:
Did you succeed?
