In one of my previous posts, WordPress: How to Add a Signature to Your Posts, I discussed how to use Photoshop to create an animated signature. In my tutorial, I talked about creating all the layers, then going to Window–>Timeline and creating the frames by selecting “New Frame” for each layer. That is definitely one way to do it, but when creating another animation, I learned a quicker way.
Animated Signature: The Quick Way
To quickly add frames, go to the Timeline and click on button to create the animation and have the timeline appear. Now go to the right button and instead of clicking on “New Frame”, click on the link to “Make frames from layers”. This will make a new frame for each layer.
You can also edit each frame by simply clicking on the frame, then selecting the layers you want to appear (if for instance, you want more than one layer to appear). Here’s a simple video on how I did it.
