Serendipitous Photo Story: Learning about Gifs

Stretching

Good morning from a cool and cloudy spring day in Hastings.

I woke up this morning determined to try and work out how to do gifs.  You know all those short animated videos that are now becoming popular. Just looking at this is actually making me dizzy though as I am writing my post.

Anyway when I go out taking photos I tend to take a lot of shots together so that when I go through them fast I could see a short video.  So I got up early this morning and went to Photoscape where I found it was relatively easy.  I managed to save it as well.

 But the problem came when I tried to upload to Facebook. Apparently they hate gifs there – well they can be uploaded everywhere else easily.  I suppose they think that they are a law until themselves.  But, after googling it I managed to work out how to do it. Then it promptly got lost in cyberspace.

It really was just an exercise in learning something new.  I still prefer stills, but when I get something like this I will try again.

Here is the same duck.  I just loved her reflections.

I actually am trying to work on my reaction times.  I have a lot of photos of both ends of ducks and lots of water.  They do move so fast.

As you can see.

All in all a work in progress.
