in order to upload a gif to tumblr and have it load is either you can load one single gif (1mb) or gifs in a photoset and they can be 2mb. you can find that on the screen when you save the gif, i’ll show you at the end.
First you’ll want to make sure you have your animation timeline up. So go to window > animation
Now click flie > scripts > load multiple dicom files
a box will pop up. find where you loaded your screencaps and click OK
Now your screencaps are loaded.
It should look like this
Now click convert to frame animation at the bottom right of the animation tab like this
Now you’ll click the bottom above that at the top of the animation tab that has an arrow pointing down with some lines and click ‘make frames from layers’
Now this is where you will play the gif and find any extra frames you don’t want on your gif.
now you’ll want to click the arrow with lines again and select all the frames
Then you’ll click flatten frames into layers
after you flatten the frames you’ll want to delete all the layers under the eye on the layers tab like this
select them all and hit the trash can at the bottom of the layers tab.
Now you’ll set the speed of the frames by select all frames again and you’ll click the arrow by the speed of th frames on the animation tab and you’ll clikc ‘other’
i usually set my gifs to 0.05 but you can play around with it.
Now you’ll add a psd onto it. You’ll want to select the first frame on the animation tab and the last frames on your layers tab
then you’ll drag the psd file onto the gif
now you’re ready to sharpen the gif.
which here is the tutorial i used to sharpen my gifs the way i do
then you’ll save your gif by going to flie > save for web pages & devices and make sure the gif is set to forever like so
you’ll want your settings like that.
now if your gif is over 2 mb you’ll want to delete some frames from your animation. in a photoset I can normally get around 40 frames.
I hope I explained everything good lol.
