TUTORIAL TUESDAY - GIFBOOM - @royal
Hey guys! It’s @royal from Gifboom. I am so excited to be doing this week’s Tutorial Tuesday!
The apps you need are:
Photo Extractor (Free)
Image Blender ($2.99 but it’s totally worth it!)
Step 1: Get a friend!
Step 2: Record a video. Make sure it looks like you’re actually holding an object in your hands.
Step 3: Go to Photo Extractor, click “Pick From Library” and select the video you just took. Press “Start”. Use the arrows to select the frames you want. I did about every 5 to 10 frames.
Step 4: Find two pictures online. One of Mickey Mouse and the other of Minnie Mouse.
Step 5: Open Image Blender. Click on the box in the bottom right corner and upload the picture of Mickey.
Step 6: Select the pencil at the top of the screen. You should now be in “Mask Mode”. Now, at the bottom of this screen, make sure the pencil s pointing up.
Step 7: Use you finger to swipe out anything that is not Mickey’s body. For accuracy, you can use your two fingers to pinch & zoom in and out. This editing process may take a long time. If you mess up, click on the pencil on the bottom of the screen so that the eraser side is pointing up. Then you can erase the parts that you messed up. When you are satisfied with your editing, click on the check mark to indicate that you’re done. Your screen should now look something like this: (hopefully neater than mine; I had to rush)
Step 8: Select the square on the bottom left of the screen and upload the first frame from the video. On the top of the screen, select the icon that looks the 4 arrows crossing each other. This is the “Arrange” tool. Size your Mickey Mouse so it fits in your hand. Use the opacity bar to select the opacity you desire. It should look similar to this:
Step 9: Repeat Step 8 for all the frames in your gif. Then, do Minnie Mouse in the other person’s hand.
Step 10: Start a new project in Image Blender.
Step 11: Find a picture of the Walt Disney Logo and crop it. Upload this picture to the square on the bottom right of the screen. Then, upload the part of the video to the bottom left square. (When your hands start to separate).
Step 12: Use the arrange tool to position the Walt Disney logo in between your hands. Here is an example:
Step 13: Repeat Step 11 for the rest of the frames.
Step 14: Put all the picture together and post it on Gifboom! If you are still confused, here are some examples of frames I have:
