i’ve been fighting tumblr over this for years! i usually just play around a bit with the icon’s size and the amount of sharpening i use on it. i can’t really tell you /the/ way to make your avatar look good because that depends on the picture you’re using and other things but i can show you my favorite icon of mine and you can try to use the same size and amount of sharpening for yours too. this is a standard 100px icon but sometimes i also make them as 110px so that should work too :)

oh okay good this looks 1000 times more professional than my very personal way of doing this so thank you! maybe it didn’t work for you because we’re using different photoshop versions? that could be a reason. anyway thanks again :)

that happens to me like every time i add text to my gifs. i usually just select all the frames at the same time then i go to my layers window and i turn invisible the effect layer connected to the text layer then i set it back to visible right away

this works for me 99.9% of the time so i guess it should be ok for you, too. let me know! have a nice day :)

Anonymous said: "hello! so I went through a good portion of your blog & couldn't find it, so I'm sorry if you already answered this but could you teach me how to make a gif? Are there any good websites or places you could make gifs for free without the websites watermarks? If not, which Photoshop/programs would you recommend & how do you make them? Thank you so much!"

hello! so, a loooong time ago (this probably explains why you couldn’t find it) i made this tutorial which is about how to make gifs. it’s obviously a photoshop-based tutorial because that’s the only program i use for this kind of things so you need to download the program to follow my tutorial.

i suggest you not to use websites to make gifs because, honestly, it’s so easy to do it on photoshop and the result is way much better looking. besides you can find free downloads for photoshop pretty much everywhere right now so it shouldn’t take you too long to get started.

as for photoshop, i suggest you to download photoshop cs5 (i’m using this one) or cs6 because they’re the best ones to work with gifs and you also find the majority of tutorials based on those versions of the program. 

feel free to write me again if you have any other doubts, i’ll be happy to help you as i can. have a nice day!

hi! i’m using the cs5 version but i think it’s quite similar so you shouldn’t have problems with finding the right tools and stuff. first of all, do you want to use the whole picture as watermark or just the subject of the picture (it can be a text or whatever)? in the second case has that picture you want to use as watermark a transparent background? 

if it does have a transparent background or you just want to use the whole picture, this is what you have to do:

if it doesn’t have a transparent background:

i hope that this was what you asked for and that my explanation was clear enough. let me know how it goes! have a nice day :)

it’s probably because you chose the wrong sizes. have a look at this chart i made for a tutorial, it shows you a few standard sizes for gifs depending on the kind of gifset you want to do. let me know if it helps you :)

hello! if your gif looks high quality only when you click on it, it usually is a matter of the size of the gif. please make sure that it is not wider than 500px and taller than about 700px (in this case, i suggest you to lessen the height anyway because 700px is really too tall). let me know if this was the problem, if it wasn’t i’ll try to think of something else! have a nice day!
