My animated GIF was created using a video that I recorded while at Kennesaw State University's Owl-O-ween Festival. The festival is centered around hot air balloons so I chose to record the inflating of one of the balloons.The video was recorded at the beginning of the festival before the balloons were fully infalted and before the sun set. This gave me enough time to get a video while the lighting was still good and before large crowds of people showed up.
I created my GIF using Adobe Photoshop. The video was originally two minutes long. When I uploaded teh video to Adobe Photoshop I cut the video down to the particular parts I wanted to use. After editing the length, I saved the video as a GIF file and embedded it into my website.
