The ‘make a GIF’ challenge

posted in: News | 0

Can you believe we’re up to Challenge Number Five already?! They do say time flies when you’re having fun 😉

Last week we had the really cool challenge of making a GIF! There are heaps of GIF generators out there, like this GIF maker on GIPHY …but, I also discovered that you can also make a GIF using Shotcut or GIMP – two of the software programs we’ve looked at for 23 Things. In the end, I was a little short on time, so decided to have a play with GIPHY.

Kym, over on the Facebook Group, found this amazing site called The Heritage Lab with a tutorial on How to make your own art GIFs using Open Access artworks from the DAG museums. I chose a garden-themed scene, of course. What do you think?
