These Keyframe Animations, they are already possible in Photoshop CS5 and before, but now I want to show you something that's new in Photoshop CS6. And to show you this I just delete a Visual Layer we just made by hitting the Delete button on the keyboard and now I want to animate pictures. So I go to the Mini Bridge and I have one picture here, and Drag and Drop it into the video frame, and you see it lands on top of a layer stack.
Let's just make it a little bit bigger, and commit to transform. You see it's a small object, and that's good. So We can add some nice effects to this picture. It's very limited in time here, so let's just drag this up to some more seconds and bring it to the beginning. And now I want to show you another way of adding animation. And a slight and subtle zooming process here, by not using these Keyframes, but by just right-clicking on this track.
And now you got this Motion options, and you find something here that is known as Ken Burns effect or something like that. Let's try out the Pen and Zoom feature. Here you can specify the angle of the Pen, and you can specify if it should Zoom in or Zoom out. Yeah, that's it, and that was the effect and let's see what it does. I go to the beginning, and here you have the picture now and if I move the Time slider.
You see this Ken Burns effect and you can change this at any time by right-clicking and choosing another option. Let's just try only Zoom and you can specify from which corner it should start. Let's say we choose the lower left bottom and now let's crop through the Animation and you see, that's the zooming from the lower left corner. Let's try out the last option here, Rotate and Zoom clockwise, zooming in.
Well, and it looks like this. And you see the possibilities in this feature. You can just Drag and Drop multiple pictures into the Timeline, and Animate it and Export is as a video for your friends or your family. And with this effect, it's all a little bit more interesting than just looking at unanimated pictures. I would recommend to add some music also by clicking on this symbol and add some audio tracks.
