Hello Everybody!
I want to learn simple line drawing animation, like man walking or riding stairs, blooming flowers(looping)... etc. I have created following animated clips in Photoshop. But they lack perfection. In following staircase animation I want to add a climbing person. Kindly advise me how to create it? javascript:emoticon('Confused')

The staircase animation looks pretty good to me but the walking man animation needs more frames to give it a more realistic look. If you want to make an quick and easy animation of a person climbing stairs, I would recommend animation the stairs and person from a side view. For a looping animation of a person climbing stairs, you should only need about 4 frames of animation. You will need to make 4 different layers of the climbing person in different positions and play them in sequence. The staircase should only require 2 frames of animation played twice in the total 4 frames of animation.

Here is a link to a great tutorial on this subject: http://photoshopcontest.com/tutorials/29/how-to-create-gif-animations.html

Thank you roger1
I will try that. I tried to do in two frames only. That;s why the walking clip is not realistic.

Thank you Abraham!
Thanks for remembering me. I love PSC, but these days I am much more addicted to photography. I am trying small GIF animation, that doesn't take, much frames (and much time also!).
