how to animate in photoshop by CosmicUnicorn how to animate in photoshop by CosmicUnicorn


Here is a really simple tutorial on how to animate in photoshop.

I'm sure there are better tutorials out there... but it doesn't hurt to have one more.


Simple icon animation for the demo.

I'm always happy to answer any questions about how I do stuff. :heart:
So if something seems unclear, or if you're stuck -let me know and I'll be happy to try and help.

My photoshop version doesn't have the animation window. I clicked on the window button, but there was no animation.

The animation tool in Photoshop is usually a feature of the "extended" versions.

If you have Elements or one of the standard versions of the program, you may not have the option of the animation window/tool.

Yes I am elements :( can I get it for it? And will it be free?

CosmicUnicorn Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2011
Elements does not contain the animation feature. Photoshop and its Extended are not free...

Gimp, however, is an open-source [free] program which has an animation tool of its own. Download it here: [link]

Your view might just be set differently. Click the little icon that looks like a film strip in the bottom right corner of the animation window.
