ANIMATED GIF

This animated GIF was created for a class titled "Digital Style and Design in Public Relations Messages." This course is designed to give public relations students an introduction to the use of style and design in public relations messages.

I created my GIF from one of my favorite television shows, Friends. This scene is from the episode called "The One where Rachel and Monica fight about moving out." I chose to use a clip from Friends not only because I think the show is hilarious, but also because it is a show my friendships can relate to.

I began creating my GIF by using Clipgrab to download the video from Youtube. I then imported the video into Photoshop by changing photo frames to layers. The original clip was 54 seconds, but I trimmed it down in Photoshop to only use the clips I wanted. Finally, I saved the file as a GIF and coded it into my HTML file.
