Animated GIF

Animated GIF

This animated GIF was made on Adobe Photoshop of Silver Wings parachute jump team landing in Jordan-Hare Stadium. This footage was taken at the 2016 Auburn v. Clemson football game at the beginning of my senior year. I chose this clip because Auburn football games are some of my favorite memories from college and this game was the kickoff to my final fall semester of football games.

To create this animated GIF, I downloaded the clip of the parachuters and imported it into Adobe Photoshop. From there, I allowed every 20th slide to import and selected the appropriate frames. My goal was to create an animated GIF that flowed nicely and took viewers through a quick, effective story. While I used Adobe Photoshop to create this, there are many online resources that generate short clips into animated GIFs. However, I chose Photoshop because it gave me the ability to select which individual frames I wanted to create a cohesive animated GIF. Animated GIFs are best used in multimedia communications, most commonly on Twitter accompanied by a message.
