Hello Everyone,

There used to be software that you were able to create animated GIF files for banners and stuff. For example, the animated image on the opening CC page was made in Photoshop and saved as a mp4 video. It's displayed using the html video tag. Photoshop is not an option for me. Can anyone suggest another simple program to create these types of animations?

Thanks in advance.

Photoshop is the most easiest way to design GIF but if you don't have it then search some online application to create your own GIF.

I use the free and fairly simple VideoProc Vlogger for video editing and it seems to have all that you would need to create an MP4 video with various moving graphics as on the CoffeeCup opening page.

I don't know anything about your wife. Is she using the pro version? It seems pretty easy to use.

Canva is a great application! I use it all the time. I also use another application that is much more basic but super easy to use called Graphics Creator by Laughing Bird. I use the online version of that.

Hii,

If you're looking for alternatives to Photoshop for creating animated GIFs, there are several options you might consider:

GIMP: This is a free, open-source image editor that supports creating and editing animated GIFs.

Piskel: Piskel is a free online editor for animated sprites and pixels that allows you to create simple animations and export them as GIFs.

ScreenToGif: If you need to capture screen actions and save them as GIFs, ScreenToGif is a handy tool.

Adobe Animate: If you're looking for a more professional solution, Adobe Animate offers robust animation tools.

Canva: Canva's online design tool has some simple animation capabilities that could be used to create GIFs.

EZGIF: A web-based tool that allows for the creation and modification of GIFs. Great for simple animations.

Remember, the best tool depends on the complexity of the animation you want to create and your comfort level with the software. Most of these options offer free versions or trials, so you can explore and see what works best for you.

Thanks
