Every wanted to get more eyes to a particular part of your webpage or simply wanted to add something of interest?
Moving graphics were very popular a few years ago but it all got out of hand and some web pages ended up with nothing but flashing pictures that nearly blinded you or a least gave you a migraine.
However time goes by and most people don’t do that any more. In fact you see very few moving graphics these days
One exception of course is paid advertising like Google Image Ads. Well if it works for the big boys I guess it can probably work for us smaller guys.
So if you use moving images “respectfully” they can be a great tool.
OK, but how do you get those moving images – I’ll show you.
Take look at the video below that shows the basics of creating an animated gif
Now think beyond the video and you can start to see the possibilities here. Using multiple images can create short “videos” making running rabbits or bouncing balls.
OK, maybe not the most exiting suggestions but I can leave all that to your imagination.
Meanwhile here are the basic skills you need.
Want to learn more about creating cool graphics? Especially for Internet marketing?
Thanks for teaching us such a cool trick for free. It’s bound to make sites stand out provided it is not overused.
I’m sure someone else would have padded it out a bit and turned it into a WSO for $10!!
By the way, Monkey Graphics is such a great product and easy to follow – it’s a must for anyone building sites in my opinion.
I think even I can do that. I love the way you explain things. You don’t go over things 20 times but actually explain them properly the first time. I had an idea for an animation for our website but had put it in the too hard basket for now. That will be easy to do.
Hello Tony, like Tasha Stowell , this is something I’ve always wondered & wanted to do but left it in my future project..I was kidding myself of course, I simply had no idea how to do it ;(
Thanks Tony for that demonstration and for not putting it on the WSO dime sales.
Thank you very much Tony for creating this video. I have been wanting to know how to do this for a while and thanks to your clear and easy to understand video I now know how.
There are a number of additional tips in the video for using Gimp, so excellent value.
I was just wondering, whether a moving image works any better than a regular static photo considering the amount of time it takes to create a moving picture as against how quckly you can find and drop a static picture in.
This has been a life saver for me!
Thank you for Monkey Graphics too.
You have made a difficult subject understandable.
