Does anyone know what software is best to create high quality GIF images? I do not know if this kind of GIF can be created in Photoshop? If Photoshop cannot be used what type of software is recommended to complete an high quality GIF?
I don’t know if this animation was made in Photoshop, but you can do it in Photoshop. If you open up the GIF and take a look in the
Timeline panel, you will see that the smoothness of the animation was achieved using a high framerate (30fps, 254 frames).
The animation also uses 246 out of the 256 possible colors.
So it is possible to make a GIF animation in Photoshop that looks like this, but at the price of a filesize of 1,7 MB.
This was probably done in photoshop using the new timeline animation panel. You can read up all about it at Adobe's help page: http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/creating-timeline-animations.html
