Wait wait... i found it! :D But how do I select separate parts?
Reply
:iconindigobunny:
indigobunny Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2008
Yayyy :)
If you only want to select a certain part, just use the Rectangular Marquee tool. :heart:
Select some pixels, and if you want to add to the selection, click shift while selecting something else.

Does that make any sense? ^^;

Ok so I did everything... but what file do I save it under?
Reply
:iconindigobunny:
indigobunny Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2008
Go to File, then Save to Web, then it will save as a .GIF and it will be animated :)

Skuffie Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2008   Traditional Artist
Does it have to be playing? Or... uh... cause when I save it... it doesn't animate.
Reply
:iconindigobunny:
indigobunny Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2008
Oh, if you hit the little play button when you're saving it (under the color panel, I think) then it plays when you're saving it. But it doesn't matter, it will be animated whether you hit play or not :)

Hope that helps :D

That is so cool! I'm so glad it helped!! :D I know, every time I read a tutorial here, they seem to be for reeeally smart people (unlike myself XD) who already know how to do everything on photoshop :P
I tried to make mine more simple :)
Want me to put the avatars on my shoutboard? :D

Wahhhh, how come everyone else's first avatars are so much better than my first?! XP
