How to make an animated (gif) book cover in Photoshop



I wanted to make some animated book covers; I’ve made a couple videos with more subtle effects but wanted to try blending images together to make moving picture; you can do this with free online tools but to get it the way I wanted, I need to use Photoshop’s built in animation feature. I’ve put more samples and guides to make animated book covers here: http://wp.me/p5pJt9-1kM

Hey there – I’m Derek Murphy. I’m a fine artist who became a book cover designer, then started writing young adult scifi and fantasy. I’ve spent almost 20 years living abroad, have a PhD in comparative literature (revolutionary politics in Paradise Lost), and have been featured in CNN for renting castles to use as writing retreats. Although I’m not working with clients anymore, I’ve built a ton of resources to help indie authors write, design and publish bestselling books.

On this channel, I talk about writing, publishing and creating personal freedom with unconventional business strategies and providing value. My videos are unpolished and a little raw, because we travel full-time and I focus on content, not production quality.
