People keep emailing asking how to get a line boil GIF of their doodles so here’s a quick how to:
Firstly open Photoshop. Then make a new layer (layer 1) and draw what it is you want on it. Now turn the opacity of that layer down to about 35% so you can still see it and make a new layer (layer 2) and trace over what you drew on layer 1. Now hide layer 2 by clicking off the eye. Now make another layer (layer 3) and trace the first layer again.
Turn the opacity of layer 1 back up to 100% and stop hiding layer 2.
You should now have three separate layers with very similar drawings on.
To make this into a gif you need to save each layer separately as PNGs. So hide all layers except for layer 1 and save it as a png. Now hide all layers except for layer 2 and save it as a png. Now hide all layers except for layer 3 and save it as a png.
Now go to file - open and select the first png and click the box that says PNG SEQUENCE. Pick your frame-rate. Once that has opened go to file - save for web devices. Change the looping from ONCE to FOREVER and save the GIF.
You now have a looping gif.
