Animated Gif

I wanted to make this kind of animated GIF from the first day when I saw a similar GIF like that. Instantly I asked the question to my professor “how can I make one like that?” Professor explained it to me since I was looking for a chance to make it. So, here it is-

I know it looks quite simple but it takes a lot of effort to make it. As you can guess, I took a picture of Jake Gyllenhaal for making this GIF.

At first, I used PIXLR to make this black & white effect.  This is the link to the tutorial:

After making this effect, I have used Photoshop to crop out the black space from the photo and have made the background transparent. Then saved the picture as a PNG file for the web. Next, I choose a GIF background and used the  to place this static photo over a GIF background. As I am using windows 10 as the operating system, I used iSpringto record the screen. This software is free to download and easy to use. After recording for four seconds, I saved the recording as a video and imported it to the Photoshop. In Photoshop, I chose the video to frame animation option. Then I saved these frames as GIF for the web. This is the link to the video of how to make GIF from the video: doing these hard works, I became really happy when I saw the final animated picture of Jake Gyllenhaal.
