Animated GIFs Friday Funny

The students in my ICT class love animated GIFs. There are certainly some very funny ones out there on the Internet.

An animated GIF can be made in Adobe Fireworks by making several image frame pictures, which then play one after each other in a continuous loop.

There are certainly some people out there making some very clever animations using this basic technique.

This week we are taking a quick look at some of our favorite mini animations.

Unfortunately the following GIF is a little bit on the small side, but it is simple and funny.

Animated GIFs can also be made by capturing a set of "stills" from a video, and then copy and pasting them into an image processing program like Adobe Fireworks.

The following animation is a real favorite of ours. Just the idea of putting Sadam on a tricycle is so funny, but then with added animation it is brilliant.

We especially like how Sadam starts pedaling slowly, and then the animation quickly increases to full speed. (To see this happen. click on the picture to open it in a separate window). Definitely a 10/10 animation!

This animation is simple but effective.

Here is another 10/10 brilliant animation. It looks very realistic, and would have taken a lot of clever work to make.

This one is so cute.

Here is "Big Cat" listening to some cool songs that Little Cat made and uploaded to Itunes recently.

Being a typical rock star "bad boy" type, Little Cat got into a bit of trouble with the law, and is currently on the run heading for Las Vegas.

Little Dog doesn't seem too fussed that Little Cat is missing his Birthday Party.

This next one is a brilliant idea, and brilliantly executed.
