Making GIFs

Now let me show you how to make gifs in photoscape from a video or clip.

But first of all, you need to have this Free Studio(Video to JPG converter) application. It will convert your video into JPG frames. We’ll need that for making our gifs. I personally find that application easy to use but you can download any video to jpg converter if you want.

After you have download the converter, all you need to do is choose the video you want to make gif. Please keep in mind that when converting the video, the filename should not contain any other characters like Korean, Chinese, etc. because it won’t work.

So you just add the video, and as you can see I selected “Every 4 frames”, I suggest you use that too. Then just click the “convert” button if you’re done adding the video and choosing the number of frames. Once you’re done, you can see the converted gifs to the location you selected on your computer. For me, it is saved into “D:\work\togif”, you can change the location of the converted video if you prefer to.

Know the features

So you see, photoscape offers different features that can help you do edits in just simple and easy to learn steps. Let me just give you some preview about its features.

  • The Batch Editor. The batch editor is very useful when you’re making gifs from many frames for it will edit it at once. All the editing you apply for a single picture will be applied to all the pictures you add on the batch editor. So basically, it will lessen your time editing pictures that has same effect on each of them.
  • The Splitter. The name defines itself. Of course the splitter is a tool that splits your photos into row and columns, or even any size that you want. It’s like when you crop the picture, but the difference is, the splitted pictures will be all saved in a folder.
  • The Combine tool. Combine lets you,of course, combine several pictures in one canvas. It can be combined horizontally, vertically or checkered.
  • The Page. So the page is where you place pictures on a layout. These feature allows the user to choose different layouts where you place your pictures.

Sharpen Tool

sharpened

How to sharpen your photos? You only need to follow two steps to do it.

As you can see, you can choose from the range of 1-10 when sharpening your photo. But I suggest that you should not sharpen it that much if you don’t want it to look messed up. I just used level 5 for you to clearly see what will happen if you used this tool.

Filter (Noise Reduction Tool)

Here’s an easy guide on how to reduce the noise of your photo. Please take note that I used the Filter option and Noise Reduction Tool, not the Smart Blur. But you can also use that if you want. I just prefer to use the Noise Reduction rather than the Smart Blur tool.

So here’s the original photo. As you can see, some parts of the photo looks like rough and full of texture on it.

Let’s start the photoscape tutorial now!!!

Tips?

Based from my experience in using Photoscape, I’m gonna give some tips about editing your photos. Simple photoscape tutorial for your photo, these tips are kinda basic.

First of all, I recommend you to use a High Definition photo for better quality,of course ^^.

Second, when editing a photo, make sure to reduce the noise on it. So that it will look “flawless” , it will actually blur or clear the skin of the photo.

Third, after reducing the noise, I suggest that you should  use the sharpen tool especially when the photo had been blurred too much (make sure that you won’t blur it too much when you use the noise reduction). But please take note that you should not sharpen it that much.

And there you have it. Simple edit for your photo. You can use some effects for editing it. (Tutorial on photoscape effects, to be updated soon)

How to add text

Adding text on your photos is so simple using Photoscape. Let’s get this photoscape tutorial started!

All you have to do is click the T or TT button. A dialog box will appear and from then, you can now type text on it, change its color, change font size, change font style, text alignment, etc.

*The dialog box above will pop out when you click the TT button. As you can see, you can choose in there some basic tools for your texts.

*The dialog box above will pop out when you click the T button. As you can see, there are more options in this tool. Aside from the basic things you can do to edit your text, using the T button lets you add outline and shadow, lets you control its opacity of your texts, and many others.

NOTE: I prefer using the T button because of the additional pictures. But it’s still up to you which one you’ll use.

How to add textures

So photoscape also have this feature where you can add texture/s to your photos. Let me show you how to add textures for a photo. Just like what I’ve made for this one. First, I clear skin texture of the original photo by reducing the noise on it. As you can see, you can choose from Low to High Clear Skin. I used the Low one for this photo because too much reducing of noise might cause blurring the picture and it might get ruined.
