    'Cracked' and 'Smoke' animated wallpapers using 'Actions' in Photoshop CC. Effects much better when I don't have to reduce them in size to under 2 megabytes to post in this group. Click on images to view effects.

I'm waiting for the designer I purchased them from to get back to me. He has great video tutorials on each of his PS Actions, but I'm still learning about masking and using the hard / soft brush to paint to the edges correctly.
    If you're using Photoshop CC 2017 then you now have all the masking tools in one place - the new Select and Mask dialog, check out some of the Youtube Tutorials

    It still takes practice to use but is much easier than it used to be

    Hi Barman

    Thanks for the feedback. It's funny you should mention the 'Select and Mask' feature as I've now worked out today how to use it and with the refined edge feature etc. I can mask the section of the image I want to mask so much better now. Thanks for the video tuts. It was actually the third video down from your list that I watched today to work out how to do it.

    YouTube is an excellent learning resource.

    Windows 10 'Particles Reveal' animated wallpaper. Once again, due to the size limitations of gifs here, I had to shortern the Photoshop timeline and reduce the number of frames in order to post here under 2MB, but it will give you the idea. Click onto the image to view effect.

    One way around the size lumitation, which is there for a good reason, is to use a png or jpg as a thumbnail image and provide a link to the gif stored on a dedicated free image site

    G+ from Google is great for that
    Yes! I use G+ and I am not ashamed to admit it.

    Please notice: the opinion told in this post is just that, a subjective personal opinion of one individual member. Nothing more, nothing less.

    You obviously have great talent, your wallpapers look astonishing as long as I do not click them, as long as they remain static.

    That being said, I just can't understand why anyone would want to use an animated wallpaper in Windows? It's extremely disturbing already to see that pulsing effect on your avatar and sig every time there's a new post or reply from you, in fact to such extent that I have seriously thought about adding you to my ignore list simply to not to have to see them.

    The thought that I would voluntarily expose myself to that pulsing effect on big screen display as Windows wallpaper day in day out, always I'm using PC is just impossible.

    I remind you that I really like those wallpapers you've done, nothing wrong in them as long as I remember to never click them thus avoiding the effect. You are quite an artist, my opinion presented in this post is not to undermine your artistic talent which I hold in high regard.

    A short version: Animated wallpapers are a big NO for me, I wouldn't be surprised if some other users think the same.
