Step 1. This is a rather easy lesson. To begin with, we will create a new document of 300×300 pixels (pixels) with transparent (transparent)background (backgroundcontent) and write any letter that we like.
Step 2. Now make three copies of this layer (press Ctrl + J three times).
We are on the bottom layer and go to the menu Editing – Transformation (Edit – Transform) or press the key combination Ctrl + T, and then “flatten” our letter a little.
Step 3. In the next step, select the middle layer from the three layers that we created and move it a little higher. Move (Move), if you wish, you can use Ctrl + T).
Step 4. For this layer, which we moved higher, create two more duplicates (two copies).
And the middle layer among those that we just did, move a little higher and “stretch” with the command Ctrl+T.
Great, now we should have everything as shown in Figure 6. Remove the “eye” icon from all layers (approx. for this you just need to click on it once), leave only the first layer that we created visible.
Now you need to go to Image Ready (for versions prior to CS3)
or in the menu Window Animation (Window–Animation) (in versions from CS3 and above).
Working with animation will be very easy. In the animation window in the upper right corner there is an arrow with a drop-down menu, in this menu you need to select the function Create frames from layers (MakeFramesfromlayers). Then select all the frames and set the interval to 0.1 second, and then save optimized file (File–Saveoptimized (Ctrl + Alt + S)) (for Image Ready) or Save for web devices (File–Saveforweb) (Shift+Alt+Ctrl+S) (for versions CS3 and above).
Note Do not forget that the animation should be saved in the format Gif.
Remember – fantasy is the basis of design.
