Where are you using this GIF? On a website? If that's the case I'd recommend using CSS3 animation as your primary loader, as these will provide the smoothest results. Here are some examples.Note that these are not images but instead are shapes rendered and transformed by the browser. An animated file back-up isn't a bad idea though as older browsers (such ...

Gifs only support 1bit transparency (meaning that a pixel is either fully transparent or not at all), so depending your case you might use dithering option (old-fashioned) or match the matte color with your background color. You can find a former and complete answer in this thread: How can I remove white pixels around circles when exporting this to gif? Or, ...

There's really no such thing as a high-quality gif. The format was developed in the early 1990s and is limited to 256 colours, one of which may be fully transparent. Best you can do is optimize it for the current background colour, and choose fills & blends that do not involve a lot of intermediate shades. If you want a basic spinner / throbber icon ...

The easiest way might be to: Make a background layer fill it with white. With your line drawn character on the top layer, flatten the image. Magic Wand the white on the outside of the character and hit delete. This should leave you with the white character! Hope that works!

The basic answer you already know... Do it by hand. That's how everyone does it if they are trying to fill brush strokes. You can try the flood fill tool but that often requires you to work on the same layer as your key line (Black outline) and it has a tendency to feather edges requiring you to manually correct those anyway. Often what is done is that ...

I think the best solution for your need is to use masks. Just put a background and select with mask the drawing, delete the background... And you have the draw with background. Is what you need or I'm wrong?

Another solution that wouldn't require you to rename your layers is using the Layer Comps feature: 1) Open the Layer Comps palette by going to Window > Layer Comps 2) Have only the layer you want in the first slide (saved file) as visible, all others off. 3) Click the "New Layer Comp" icon in the bottom right of the menu, exactly as if you were making ...

It is possible to save multiple layers as separate gif, png, jpg etc formats. To do this you must first select File> Generate> Image Assets In your layers panel rename each layer as the format you would like to out put eg: Layer 1 = (Meow 1.png) Layer 2 = (Meow 2.png) Layer 3 = (Meow 3.gif) Layer 4 = (Meow 4.jpg) Once you have renamed the layers as ...

Most computer displays are 60hz (60 frames per second). The magic numbers you need for the Frame Delay are: 2 frames at 60hz = 0.0333333333th of a second = 0.03s frame delay. 3 frames at 60hz = 0.0666666667th of a second = 0.06s frame delay. Most of the time, a 0.03 or 0.06 second frame delay is what you’ll be after.

[#] Guide Layers are only visible in the current composition, but not in other compositions or the final render. For e.g. In terms of working in a subcomposition, it can be useful to see the footage of the main composition. In this case, you can copy the footage to the subcomposition and turn it into a guide layer by Selecting the Layer, go to Layer > ...

As Afterlame suggests, the best solution to your problem is either: Include the gradient in your image so that it can render the half opacity drop shadow that you're looking for. OR Simulate your animation through CSS or JS. This is the vastly superior option, as it gives you complete control over your situation. You won't have to edit a gif, or any ...

The cleanest way to get around it is a little time consuming, but worth it if you need your layers/imagery crisp. A note before hand: You can always try playing around with the objects in the library by right clicking on them and playing with the properties. You'll still have pixelated edges on some objects. We've found that importing the psd, layer by ...

.gif does not support alpha transparency, that is the reason for the “line” around your logo. The easiest way would be to include the gradient in the background. The only problem would be a dynamicly changing background. To get alpha transparency on the web is using a .png, which does not support animations. But since you only have two frames, you can ...

The simplest way is to work with a composition within a composition. Create a small composition that only has the button, there make a shape layer of your circle and enlarge it until it leaves the margins of the composition and you reach the desired animation with opacity, motion blur, etc. Place this small composition into the bigger "screen" composition. ...

If you're planning on using the animation solely on the web, it might be better to go with a format that's more web-friendly than video, such as Javascript or CSS animations, or animated svg. Upside is that these are usually lighter in weight, and thus faster to load, downside is that these can't always achieve the 'coolness' of video effects. 1. ...
