Hi and welcome to December2017 Gif Challenge

Decembers theme is "Black And White"

What you want to do is totally up to you. But the Gif must contain at least 1 image or more that is in black and white and must have more than 2 images (played as a continuous loop)to be able to enter the challenge. So it is pretty much a open theme.

It can be a still image that you can turn from black and white to color.

Image

It can be all black and white animation if you like.

Image

These options are all up to you. Only rule, it must have at least 1 black and white image and more than 2 images played as a continuous loop

Image



This month's Category C rules are:


1. A new or recent animated video - defined herein as a sequence of at least 2 frames played as a continuous loop, in .GIF format viewable on TDF. No external links.
2. Shot by yourself, not taken before December 1st 2017, and not posted before as a video.
3. An entry into this category may contain any mixture of dolls.
4. Doll nudity is permitted.
5. Photoshop, gimp or other image editing is OK. Special Effects and CGI are also acceptable.
6. Do not break any TDF rules regarding photos, and also comply to The Doll Album AUP.
7. Include the name of your doll(s), and a title/caption for your animation. If no caption and name(s) are provided before the closing of the thread the submission will be disqualified.
8. Please try not to harm any dolls, humans or fluffy kittens etc.
9.You may use a carpet ghost to improve your gif.
10. Must contain at least 1 black and white image (meaning no color in that image what so ever)

Since it is easyer to copy and paste this (thanks IG and H+F) And I actually use photoshop to make gifs.

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


This month's challenge will run until approx… 5am EST December Thursday 28th 2017, with the next three days open for voting.
The top three winners (unless there are ties) will be announced on Sunday 31st 2017. Unless I have a mean as hang over since it will be the 1st for me.


Thank you all that voted me last month and thanks to everyone who joined in.
So lets take those snap shots and have some fun

Love the theme this month!

Looking forward to some creative ways to use black and white.

Several ideas popped into my mind when I read it, but one sticks out. Now just to pull it off.

And no...I am not going to do a 320 photo gif again lol.

320 photo's, now thats extreme
I could never imagine doing that. What did you use to create the Gif?
Hopefully this will be a nice easy one for everyone since the holiday season is coming.
You should tell us your ideas. I made this one up if nothing to go on X.x

Well done tattooed dolls! I think that’s probably the record for the quickest entry into a challenge!

I must say, at first I was a little disappointed with the theme title but I’ve had a couple of ideas so maybe it isn’t such a difficult one as I thought! Let’s bring it on!

Cheers, Hollows.

We'll give this a try. Anna and I were talking about Christmas shopping and how much I hate the crowds. Being from China, one thing she's used to is crowds. "Just put on your war face and get in there..." was her advice. lol (Her war face by the way, is adorable!!!) Anyway, the idea for this one was born..

I used Photoshop to add the paint. And I also used the liquefy filter to try to give her a smile at the end there. It looks kinda weird, but oh well. :P (I really wanted her to laugh, but I couldn't figure out how to do that).

So, here's Anna Marie in "War Paint"... We hope you like it. :)
