Photoshop for Kids: Cinemagraphs Made Easy

New tutorial just posted on the Adobe Education Exchange.  Here it is.  It was made using Photoshop CS5Extended, but any full-version (extended) version of Photoshop will do.  It's the beginning level tutorial for making "cinemagraphs" or animated .gifs.  This one teaches simple frame by frame techniques, but there's lots of room for creativity!  Consider doodles on your pictures, making them into moving digital paintings, or rotoscoping frames of video.  These ones are pretty basic, but for more advanced techniques to create really stunning cinemagraphs, see my earlier post on cinemagraphs.  Enjoy, and stay tuned for my next cinemagraph tutorial on how to create time-lapse cinemagraphs with Photoshop.
