Will this work also in Photoshop?

I am not familiar with photoshop, I have never used that program, I suppose you can do this with photoshop as well.

Hi, Loes, excellent video, and love your image created using gif, but unless I need animation I find png a better file format as you can get exactly the same results as in gif but without the animation. Also, too much animation tends to slow down your website.

Png has better transparency options, and although it doesn't support animation, smaller file size, and is far easier to optimize using Tinypng, which can compress images by as much as 70%.

I've found diy compressing of gif images can be rather complicated and mostly, as far I have experienced, done online, saving you up to 50%. If you know of an easy to use gif compression tool, Loes, I'd much appreciate it.

Just a point that may be of use to those new to creating graphics, if you want transparent backgrounds or animation, never use jpg or jpeg, they don't support either.

That's a coincidence, I just changed the image on my website in a not-moving PNG :))
