For my second ds106 assignment, I chose:
Photo It Like Peanut Butter: Rather than making animated GIFs from movie scenes, for this assignment, generate one a real world object/place by using your own series of photographs as the source material. Bonus points for minmal amounts of movement, the subtle stuff.
I used photos I had taken with my sister and her friend on some railroad tracks. I tried several different sets of photos that I had, but these were the most sequential. They made the most seamless gif with the least “jumpy” movements. I used makeagif.com. It was a simple system, you just upload your photos, order them, then choose the speed and size of the gif. If I made another gif I might try a different software just to try one with more options. I manually uploaded the gif to ds106 (mine’s the one titled *Brielle’s gif*), and the assignment link is at the beginning of this post. The direct link to the gif is below (I couldn’t figure out how to embed it in the post).
