What Are Gifs?

 

I went back and completely scratched out my “How to Make a Gif” section. Instead of telling people the steps that they should do to create a Gif, I showed them. I listed a couple different sites that have step by step instructions for a person to create a Gif on. I also posted two website addresses were there were articles on how to create a Gif using Adobe Photoshop, however, I know most people really don’t have access to this program, so that is why I didn’t go into the articles step-by-step instructions. I instead used one of the other sites I mentioned before it. I went through the process to create my own Gif–and since I can’t save the Gif in a format that can be put on an inforgraphic–I did screenshots of each step of the process and put them on the inforgraph instead. This way a person can actually see how a Gif could be made.

I also went back and changed the “How Are Gifs Used Today” section. I actually found an article describing how the Gif started, how it has progressed through time, and some ways it is used today. I found out a lot of Gifs are used in advertisement to catch peoples attention along, which makes people look at the product a company is trying to sell and buy it.

Some others things that I changed were, having a Works Cited page instead of a Conclusion at the end of the inforgraphic. I also made sure to make sure all the text was black and a bigger size. I made some of the sections different colors than others. Before, every other section was a different color to show when the information was switching topic. I t was a little bit of an abrupt change to go from color, to white, to color, and white again over and over again. So since I went back and added more information to some section, I had to extend those sections past just the one part. So , some of the colors extend with the information for a couple of sections before the colors switch again. I believe this is a smoother transition than before. This way, the viewers eyes aren’t distracted by the flipping colors. It makes the background what it should be, just something to help emphasize what is in the foreground and the most important part of a certain section.
