In a gif-fy

A few more animated gifs (below the jump)… these ones made using a combination of – MPEG Streamclip and ImageJ applications, a couple great freeware tools via Grant that have both proven to be very useful. I still haven’t figured out how to use Gimp – maybe somebody else in the course will share some tips.

    What’s more, I have a very special animated GIF just for you, coming soon ;)

    There is something weirdly magical happening in this post. There are many magical things happening actually. I can’t put my finger on it, but they left me smiling. I couldn’t bring myself to actually watch the videos, the silent gifs were enough.
