GIFs, Technology, and Art

I haven’t made any GIF’s (which I insist on saying with a hard “g”), but here’s a guide to do so. I may dabble with it at some point. There are of course other ways to make a GIF,ย and probably more than I can even find at this moment, but those look like some simple ways to start.

I like some of the points that are brought up in this video about GIFs as a kind of art. Too often, we discard digital formats of art and of writing as being somehow less valuable than those produced with pens/pencils and paper. And I’m not sure that’s fair.
