How to make a crackship gif in GIMP
In this how to, I’ll show you how to make a crackship GIF in GIMP.
Very much like the previous GIMP tutorial I’ve done, I’m going to use screenshots to help walk you through these steps.
To start off, you’ll want to find two gifs that are the same size (it makes things easier). For this tutorial, I’m going to be using these two gifs.
What you’re going to do next is you’re going to open GIMP and go to file, click new, then make the canvas size the appropriate size of your gifs. For my crackship, my canvas size is going to be 500 x 250. Be sure to click advanced options and select fill background with transparency. Here’s images of these steps to help you visualize it more.
Next, you’re going to go up to file and click the “open with layers” button and open up your two gifs. Your final result will look like this:
Once you’ve done these steps, you can delete the transparent layer that is at the bottom of your layers list.
To preview what your crackship gif looks like at this moment, go up to the filter tab and down to animation. Click playback and a window will pop up, allowing you to preview it.
If you’re pleased with how the crackship looks, you can go to file and click export. Give the crackship a name and click export.
Here’s some images to show those steps:
Once you’ve selected all that you want for the crackship gif, click export and this will be your final result:
I’ll be adding how to make the gif gray-scale later on if you’d prefer that!
I hope this helps!
