I design custom baseball cards for a hobby, and am wondering if I can use an animated GIF inset within a large photo to display a rotation of images.
It is easiest if you look at the "card"/image . . . within the circle, where there is a picture of Ruth holding some bats, I would like to add a series of several images that would rotate through (obviosuly the "card" would be for viewingonline rather than printing).
Is it possible to do? I am thinking an "animated gif" would be the easiest, but if there is some other way (video, etc.). I am open to that.
I just would like to know if the goal can be done, and if so, how to do it.
That can be done with a gif. You just set up your bg image, then have a series of layers for your insert. Create a frame animation by opening it in Window>Timeline. Have all your insert layers except one turned off. Create a new frame, the turn on the next layer. Keep repeating creating a new frame and turning on a new layer. When you're done, you can set the time each frame displays. Save it using save for web using the gif option.
