How to make a GIF in Photoshop?

2 years 7 months ago #672411 by Connie K Photos
I went to Google on this first and found these instructions: 
  • Upload your images to Photoshop.
  • Open up the Timeline window.
  • In the Timeline window, click "Create Frame Animation."
  • Create a new layer for each new frame.
  • Open the same menu icon on the right, and choose "Make Frames From Layers."
  • Under each frame, select how long it should appear for before switching to the next frame.
  • At the bottom of the toolbar, select how many times you'd like it to loop.
  • Preview your GIF by pressing the play icon.
  • Save and Export Your GIF.
I have followed these instructions, yet when I press play, no change and it doesn't play.  I set up mine with 5 images that would play, but no luck.  I'm guessing there must be something I missed here. Have you tried making a GIF and experienced the same?
