So, you want to make something like this?

Then click the GIF!

I made a video tutorial on how to make one of these. 

Good luck and have fun!!!!!

 

 

A lot of people has been asking me about how I did my signatures so I decided to make this video. 

I included some "advanced" techniques as well.

I don't really make gifs that often though. 
My way is not the only way.

Cheers!

Neat! Just a bit if critique

Neat! Just a bit of critique though. You should re-draw the logo in a higher resolution (like what I did in my vid, but already finished and prepared) so you can make it crisp when resized into a smaller size. Remember to have a good contrast in the image.

 

GL!

It's alright to use any

It's alright to use any program as long as you can get some clips out of it. You're just gonna crop the part you like anyway. :)

 

Just convert the file into another format. You can use freeware for that. :)

 

For looping you can adjust that in photoshop itself.

Quick question/comment..

First of all, I have to really point out that your tutorial is AMAZING! I can understand it completely and the music is just... <3

Second, would you highly recommend just using photoshop? Or are there other programs that are usable? (Not that I know any as of now). The only reason why I ask this is because I currently do not have photoshop on my laptop so..

Aww. Haha thanks. I was a bit tired at the end and I'm sure that showed. Glad it helped a lot of you guys.

 

Hmm there are a lot of freeware out there that have a GIF specific tool. I forgot the name of it but I'm sure it would show up easy if you google for it. I hope you find what you're looking for. Anyway, I'm sure it's very similar to the process I made in the video. GL! :)
