Default Multi Burst

Hello everybody.
Did anyone find software to "play" multiburst photo's on your computer?? The only solution I could think of, was making animated gif's with photoshop, but this results in huge loss in size and quality.....
Thanks,
Eric

I have used QuickTime and it's create a movie feature and it works fairly good. You can set the speed of each frame if you want to slow or speed it up.

Ahem... my newbie question:

How do I use Photoshop to create an animated .GIF? I tried to open one in it, but I got a warning that basically said "this is an animated GIF, if you save it you will lose information". So, I kinda thought it wasn't possible to do it using PS.

Thanks!

What I did is: cut the photo into 16 small photo's, and save them separately.

then you can all turn them into an animated gif with PS, but you loose too much information; these gifs are meant to be used on the internet, so they have limited size and colours.

Of course you can always just try and see what happens; just make sure you save under a new name! That's how I found out............

Sorry for the delay, José, I had to reinvent the wheel. Seems I'm a bit hecktic...

What you do is the following: you add the different steps/photos on different layers, and choose File, Save for web. In the new page, at "settings", choose GIF. Don't forget to check the box "animate". This box can only be checked when your picture has multiple layers!

Good luck,

Eric

I didn't know about fixfoto, so I wrote an application to help automate the cropping of the images in a multiburst photo.

You can check it out here:

As far as making an animated GIF, I recommend using Adobe ImageReady (should come with photoshop) and use the 'import folder' option. If the cropped images get added in reverse order you can reverse the frames with a simple click of the button.
