We are using the same banner which we created and do some tweaks to make an animated banner. So before getting started you need to know that this tutorial will help you create different types of banners whether they are animated or not. The main thing is getting different ideas for the banner.
1 – Open the PSD document of the previous banner which we created. If you have not saved it then you can download the PSD file from here.
2 – Now as you can see, there is a text “Learn Graphic Design”. We will add some animated text there. Duplicate that text layer and type “Learn Motion Graphic”.
3 – The image will overlap the previous text layer but you need not worry as we will make some changes in it.
4 – Again duplicate the text layer and type “And Much More…” as the text of the layer.
5 – Now select the window menu and click on timeline. You will see a small window appear just below the main document.
6 – Now for the sake of simplicity we will use short names for the three text layers.
We will name – “Learn Graphic Design” as Text 1
“Learn Motion Graphic” as Text 2 and
“And Much More…” as Text 3.
7 – Select the Text 2 and make the opacity zero. Similarly select the opacity of Text 3 to zero. Now Text 1 will be clearly visible.
8 – Now click on the duplicate current frame button below the timeline window and select the opacity of Text 1 to 80%.
9 – Again select on the new fame button and select Text 1 opacity to 60%. Similarly follow the step reducing the opacity by 20% until it becomes zero.
10 – Now click on the new frame button. In this frame the opacity of Text 1 should be zero. Now select Text 2 and change it’s opacity to 20% and keep on increasing the opacity by 20% in each frame until it becomes zero.
11 – Now using the same way reduce the opacity of Text 2 by 20% in each frame till zero.
12 – Now repeat the same step for Text 3. First increase the opacity in each frame from 0 to 100% and then reduce the opacity from 100% to zero.
13 – Click on the play button. You will see the Text fading in and out. You can change the time period for each frame also. I am using the default zero seconds.
14 – Now click on File>Save for web. Select GIF image and change the settings as shown below. Your animated web banner is ready.
