Introduction n First off, I chose this project because I was not able to use all the major features that CS 2 has to offer. My last project did not explore into more detail on the new tools that are available on CS 2. This is why I decided to continue using Photoshop but in order to actually use features such as Animation. This was not available in Photoshop 7. 0 so I decided that I wanted to learn how to make pictures animated and able to move be moved.

Research on Basics n The very first goal I put forth was to research the general basics and tools that are used in the animation feature. In order to do this I went to different websites were information was offered on animation. I then printed out the information and highlighted and underlined all the key points on using animation. This step took me about 2 weeks because I spent a lot of time testing out the tools on random pictures. Once I knew that I was capable of following a tutorial and creating an animation, I went ahead and did so.

Tutorial #1 n Well, I wanted my first tutorial to be an easy to read beginner level one, because I did not want to get confused. I searched for a tutorial on different websites such as www. good-tutorials. com where I found one. I decided to do the Shooting Star tutorial because it is short, simple, and very easy to follow. I eventually completed it successfully and took screenshots of how I did it.

Tutorial #2 n After I felt that I knew how to work with the animation tool, I decided to do a longer, more complex tutorial. I then searched for one again and found the right one. I found the Lightning tutorial which was a little more difficult to do because it required downloading brushes, and placing them in different areas of the tutorial. I also managed to create this one as well, even though it was a little harder.

My Own Original Animation n After I noticed that I knew how to use animation really well I decided that I wanted to make my own animation where it used multiple animated objects, and words as well. I knew this was going to take much longer and require more concentration. I chose to do an animation on a sports team where the different players come into the screen, and the lettering animated too. First I had to look for different pictures of the players, the background, and fonts. I also had to learn how to make the words move. Once I had these, the process of cutting out the players, refining the pictures, and animating them began. Once I finished this whole animation required about 3 ½ weeks.

What I Learned n At the end of my project I found that I learned how to use the animation in Photoshop CS 2. I learned how to use the frames set, how to alter the time between frames for desired speed, how to move pictures and words. At first I was reluctant to learn how to use animation because I thought it would be too complicated and a waste of time. I came to realize that animation was actually much easier to work with than I thought because Photoshop CS 2 has the animation feature well set up. I also learned that animation is very easy to work with, but it takes a lot of time, and patience.
