這幾天幫朋友的小孩拍照,順便幫小妹妹做了一個gif動畫檔。 gif 是壓縮至極小的網路動畫檔案。現在我們常用他來做溝通軟體裡的貼圖。要自己做gif 檔不難,現在市面上有手機軟體可以免費製作。這裡教大家如何用Photoshop做gif動畫檔。Photoshop也可以做影片?很神奇吧!

1. 先打開要製作成影片檔的照連續照片(3-4張),用photoshop 或是其他軟體剪成適合的大小

2. 把剪好的照片放在同一個檔案裡,分成三個layer

3. 打開Window tab, 選擇Timing

4. 這時,視窗下面會跑出選項,選擇"Create Frame Animation"

5. 點擊左下角的時間軸圖案,就可以看到時間軸

6. 將重疊再時間軸的layer分開,時間分配為每個layer 0.10秒

7. 移動大山小山圖像,就可以調整工作台上時間軸的相對比例。按空白鍵則可以播放動畫。

8. 輸出影片選擇Export > Save for Web (Legacy)

9. 選擇gif檔、檔案大小、無限迴圈播放,點Save 就可以囉!

It was such a fun day photographing the Hua's kids. Shawn and Charlotte are those kids who are super photogenic and do not shy away from the camera. I love how they looked so candid on the pictures. And that's why I love photographing kids.

Shawn 和 Charlotte 一家人去年剛從台灣搬來矽谷。同是台中人的媽媽,是標準氣質美女,生出來的小孩,當然也是超級可愛! 為了這次拍照,我翻箱倒櫃的找出玩具和道具,連我們家的狗兒子也派上用場。Shawn 和 Charlotte 很配合,邊玩邊拍照,每張照片都純真自然!

First day of April, I spent my time doing no fools but photographing my sister, who is a violist and also an architect. Unlike me, I'm more of a rock n roll type of girl, she has been playing classical violin for almost 20 years. We found a land near the new Bart Station in Milpitas where it has a big grass area by the road. I love how the color of the violin in contrast with the color of the grass. It was a beautiful sunny day with almost zero clouds in the sky. I had fun photographing her while listening to the violin and the music from earth.

四月的第一天,我和洪彤約好幫她跟她的小提琴拍照。洪彤拉了20年的小提琴,雖然不是職業的音樂家,但她拉起琴來專注的表情,人琴一體,很投入。四月的北加州氣溫已經像是夏天,我們在Milpitas路邊找到一大片草地,寬廣的草地佈滿野花野草,一個音樂家,一只小提琴,這樣是不是看起來很舒服呢?
