Here is a few tips for those who may not know how to do a GIF or need a little help. Courtesy of hollows! Thanks hollows! :morning:

I use the free software, PhotoScape, to create my GIFs and, like Bud, I find it very easy to use. Once you click on the "Animated GIF" part of the front page you can see the usual file explorer on the left, click on where you've saved your photos and your string of photos appears in the bottom left corner. You click on the first (actually, it's the last pic as it's shown in reverse date/time order!) and drag it to the top bar. Click on the next and drag it next to the first and repeat! The GIF magically starts happening! So you don't get confused as to which is next, the last photo you've used has a bloom effect on it. Don't worry if you get to the end of the bar, it will keep adding the photos. It will show a + sign on the cursor when you're in place to add at the end of the bar (I did nearly 60 I think for Ashaki's bongo GIF!). If you get one wrong you can just click on the offending photo on the top bar and delete it using the cross top right! Don't worry, it won't delete your actual photo!

You can change the time period with a button on the right. I use about 0.3 sec but adjust and see what happens! Your GIF starts as soon as you've entered a second photo! If you've taken a series of photos on the same camera and settings you don't need to bother with any other settings but have a play later perhaps! If you want to emphasise something in the GIF, like my Ashaki drinking her coffee, add that photo again at least once more but you can add quite a lot if you want (you can always keep adding until it's right or delete if too many!). This is especially important if you want to add a photo with text on it so people have time to read it (see Ashaki's December Christmas GIF)!

One thing I have found that is awkward is that, if you have a photo series in portrait, you have to right click on EACH photo on the bar and "Rotate CCW" or your GIF will come out sideways! I haven't found an easy way to do this yet so try to use landscape photos to make it easier!

Don't forget to save it with a title somewhere you can find it again!

Two images is all it takes to make an animated GIF and it can be just changing the effect of the same photo, like color to black and white for instance! good luck.... IG

Wow! That was quick IG! At least it gives plenty of time for us to think about it! Great theme! Thanks for the nod by the way and a self nod to the 'ghost'! :whistle:

I'm glad you thought about the morning doll nudity as my girls take blooming ages to decide what to wear and sometimes it's afternoon before they get dressed :whistle:

Cheers, Hollows.

This is a great theme. But I'm afraid my favourite morning routine isn't really approved :oops:

The girls are devils in the mornings and won't get up until they've had their coffee! I also get through quite a lot of alarm clocks!

Thanks AH! It took ages to get the clock bit right!

How I did it!
The first bit leaving her hand is using a rod taped to Ashaki's arm. The neat two shots are using an old laboratory stand and clamp. It kept falling over as the only place I had to stand it was on Vivette's legs and when I did get it to stand I could see it in the shot! For three photos it took me nearly an hour!

Generally the first bit of Ashaki bashing the clock is at 0.25sec but when she throws the clock those frames are at 0.10sec. As they start to get up it then varies with some at 0.25 some at 0.45 and some even as slow as 0.5sec. I wanted them to look like the lazy girls they are! Thanks to OlmanOz who pointed me on the way to altering the speed of each frame! If you click on the frame you want to alter in Photoscape in the strip at the top, a box comes up when you click on CHANGE SPEED at the right. You will then need to click THIS FRAME ONLY or you'll change the whole lot! It took me several attempts to get it right as I kept forgetting to click that button in the box and had to start over!

Vivette has pretty loose joints so she doesn't have any intermediate positions of sitting up like Ashaki so there's a pillow rolled up behind her to support her from falling backwards which she did quite often! However, I'm afraid I couldn't get the movement small enough to stop it looking jerky! It took most of the day and when I realised it was jerky I went up to do more shots and I accidentally kicked the tripod! Camera went flying on to the bed and so that was that! I couldn't get the right shot angle and focal length again!

Cheers, Hollows.

Edit:- Perhaps I shouldn't have told you about all that as you'll now be looking at all my mistakes - including spotting the pillow! :whistle:
