hey i love your blog. I think the gifs you put up are really cool. I wanted to make a gif from a 8 second video but i cant find a good program to do it. Could you please tell me if you know of a good one? thanks
I mainly use Photoshop or Ulead GIF animator.
Photoshop is more complicated than Ulead GIF but you can get a much better result (calligraphy and effects).
Ulead is much simpler and you still can get some nice effects.
Feel free to ask me more questions. I remember when I learned the software, I used to make stupid mistakes that was costing me so much time and I wished I could have addressed my questions to someone directly.
