How can I keep my visible background layer when you create a GIF file in Adobe Photoshop elements 11?

I am trying to create a GIF in Adobe Photoshop elements 11.  To give you the objective of the final result - I am trying to create the illusion of dog legs walking on a yellow background.  Each image individual leg is a separate layer on the yellow background.  I want my background layer to ALWAYS show during the animation.  In ADDITION, I want each paw image to stay on the yellow background that he hosts (if possible).  Here are the steps that I took:

  1. I have my background layer (yellow background)
  2. I layered all the other images on the top (8 paw print images)
  3. I placed these images where I want them on the background layer

I know that to create a GIF file, I go to 'Save the image for the web', select GIF and click "animate".  The problem is when I preview the animation, it's a single image at a time, instead of the overlay and keeping them on the screen as the animation progresses.

At the very least, I want the yellow background to show during the animation.  I can live with that if the paw prints don't stay on ;-)

I would appreciate any insight/help!  Thank you!

I think that you need to merge each layer with your yellow background, and then try again the gif.

In other words, put the yellow background under each layer and merge the top layer with the yellow background.

    It is the default behavior of the Composition.

    When you add a new trigger/target; It is empty and does not text or picture frames.

    You can place blocks of text, or images in the target or trigger, if necessary.

  • Cannot create a new layer when you open a gif file

    With the help of Photoshop Elements 8, I opened a gif that I want to change the text. I opened the file and the first thing I want to do is create a new layer, but I'm not able to. the button new layer in the layers box is disabled, as is the menu layers.  How to fix this?

    Image > Mode > RGB. But there are problems to open animated after the fact in recent versions of the EPS, GIF images sometimes. You end up with just one layer, then save your layered as a PSD or tiff for future editing.

  • How can I keep text left to right when you type around border of a circle?

    Hello Forum

    I was able to determine how to type text around the outer border of a circle using custom shapes and the path tool.  However, what I need, is for ALL of the text from left to right and right to the top.  I'm trying to type three words: the first word is from 09:00 to 11:00.  The next word is from about 01:00 to 03:00.  The last word would be extended from about 04:00 to 08:00.

    Using the method mentioned above that the text will wrap around the shape of the circle, it turns upside and is now from right to left when he reached the bottom of the form.  I tried different things without success.  I have access to Photoshop CS4, CS6 and CC, so if anyone has any suggestions I'd be happy.

    Thank you


    Only way I so drawn to separate paths and then use the path Selection tool to raise text 04:00 - 08:00, then the path to the scale so that the text looks like it follows the other path.

  • How can I disable the download button timer when you try to download files. It takes 5 seconds until the button becomes available and not dimmed and I need it to be as long.

    I know this is a parameter in order to prevent the download of malicious software, but I don't need. Please tell me how to disable.

    The content of this dialog window should appear immediately, but there is a counter to set a timeout of the second two before activating the button OK (security.dialog_enable_delay).

    Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance/themes).

  • How can I keep my clock and icons when I go from desktop to a Web page?

    Original title: XP Home Edition SP3.

    The clock and icons displayed in my taskbar, when I'm at the top of the desktop, do not remain when I go on a web page. Only the zoom feature is displayed. How can I keep my clock and icons when I go from desk top of the page to any web page?

    THAT IS TO SAY 8. I should have kept my question as follows: and not to lose the full screen setting, I chose in the TOOLS. I think I should use F11 to choose between full screen or clock & icons.

  • When I create a photo album, how can I keep the photos to reorganize when I move it?

    I create a photo album and I move them in the order I want them.  But when I move the album to a flash drive or yet another album, they reorganize in a different order, probably by date.  How can I keep them in the same order?

    You are missing that the files have no order - the order is provided by the spectator

    In an album, the order is provided by the kind you choose photo - on a flash drive the order comes from the look at a program that on a Mac, is usually the finder - with the finder you can life files in many different ways dont par nom, date de creation by name, date created, date modified, size, etc, etc.

    So life files in a specific order, you must set the correct settings for the files and then set the viewing program correctly - the best way to see the photos in a specific order is to export (File menu ==> export) using the name sequential option, then view them by title


  • How can I keep my colored background?

    I created an invitation using a blank Word document. I made my black background. When I send e-mail, the background will change again in white. Is there a way to keep my background color?

    Thank you!!

    It really depends on many things, including the two Hat e-mail program you use (or?), and if you have an e-mail program the recipient uses.

    If you send the word indeed, do not use the page context parameter. Instead, insert a table into the document, set the background of the Blackboard and put all of your content inside this table.  Then, when you send, that it will be maintained.

  • How can I keep old emails to download after you have configured the address

    I just install a professional e-mail address on thunderbird but don't need the 7000 + old emails to download from the server
    How can I avoid this?

    If it's gmail, visit their Web site and search for the function 'recent '.

    Otherwise, and I guess that it is IMAP, he's just doing what it is supposed to do; show you what is on the server. Your best choice is to go to the website of the provider of messaging, place messages you don't need to see their own records and not to subscribe to those folders in Thunderbird.

    If it's POP, a new account in Thunderbird does not know what you have seen before, so just of gets it everything. Beware, it will almost certainly move all messages from the server to the client, then don't start immediately remove things. The 'other files' technique described for IMAP should work here too, as POP sees no folders on the server other than the Inbox.

  • How can I keep my Active parent menu when the activation of underlying submenu items?

    Using the submenu, how would manipulate the behavior of the tab menu parent active (active state)? For example, the parent menu = portfolio, submenu consists of 2 items, photographs and drawings.

    I'm not sure if I understand you right, but if you use a 'normal' menu, it should work exactly as you wish. Just look at this site:

  • How can I make a feature request - RE: when you play an action, instead of history recording each action step, save only one step, as for example play Action [name of action]. THX

    Hello all, my first post. Would like to know how can I do a feature request regarding the way in which the actions are recorded during playback of an action. Instead of each stage of the action being recorded in history, it would be great to have the ability to save only one step of the action, such as "[name of action] Action game". THX!

    After a little research, I found that you can do what you want with the scripts. You can suspend the history using scripts. Here is an example of a script that I wrote which performs an action. It makes a loop though all the upper layers for a project of focus stacking and performs the action on each layer of dust from the sensor spot - a lot of steps in the history.

    In line 9, the statement to suspend history is made. The first part of the argument: "spot", this is what appears in the State history. The second part of the argument is the function that you want to suspend the story. In this case, it is the spotD810() function. You can use this function with your actions by simply replacing the name of set of Actions and the name of the action, where he made comments in the script.
