Default How To Make Animated Bobble Heads (Avatars)

~*~*~*~*~Click the image to open in full size.~*~*~*~*~


I am making this guide because I have so many requests for bobble head pets and so many questions about how to make them. I hope everyone can follow these easy steps and try to make their own avatar or other bobble head graphic. Remember the most important thing is to have fun!

For everyone who is asking what program I use, I have Paint Shop Pro XI. You do have to purchase this program. This guide will give you a basic idea of how to make bobble heads. You can apply that to any editing program you have on your computer.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

If you do not have an editing program on your computer and cannot use Paint here are a couple of alternatives. So far I have not been able to find free online software that will allow you to cut out images or rotate them properly. I'll update this list as soon as I have found something better :0)

If you want to test drive Paint Shop Pro you can download a free trial version by clicking the link below. This is the newest version so it is a little different than mine but should do about the same thing.

Here is a link to a list of other phote editing options

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

First of all you need to pull up the picture of whatever pet you are going to use for your bobble head.

Click the image to open in full size.

Then you need to copy and paste a second image beside the first.

Click the image to open in full size.

Next you will need to erase everything but the head of the first image. Then erase only the head on the second image.

Click the image to open in full size.

Once you have those two pictures finished you will need to rotate the image of the head about 15 degrees.

Click the image to open in full size.

You will have to do this once for the left side...

Click the image to open in full size.

and once for the right side.

Click the image to open in full size.

Each time you rotate the head in the first image you will need to "copy" and "paste" that image into the second picture. Make sure the head is lined up properly and save the image as "bobble1". Then rotate the head in the opposite direction and label it as "bobble2"

Click the image to open in full size.

Now you should have three images. The image you started out with. The image with the pet's head tilted to the left and the image with the pet's head tilted to the right. Now it's time to animate. Click the link below to go to a website that allows you to animate your pictures.

http://www.picture2life.com/

To use this website you will have to start an account. There are other websites that allow you to do "slideshow" animation but I prefer this website myself. Now that you have an account you need to click the button that says "upload images." Select the image with your pet's head tilted to the left. Then select the image with your pet's head tilted to the right. Finally select the original image of your pet twice.

Click the image to open in full size.

Now it's time to click the "upload" button.

Click the image to open in full size.

Then you need to click "gallery" in the top right hand of the page.

Click the image to open in full size.

Once your gallery shows up you should see the four images you just uploaded. Click the button that says "create animation."

Click the image to open in full size.


Now it's time to put your pictures in the order they will be animated in. First click on the original picture. Then click the picture with the pet's head to the left. Now click the second copy of the original picture. Last click the picture of the pet's head to the right. When you have your pictures added in the right order click "next step."

Click the image to open in full size.


Once your image loads onto this page you need to click the "start" button. It takes just a second to begin.

Click the image to open in full size.


When your animation starts to run make sure you check that it is running in the right order. Then click "download" and save it to your computer.

Click the image to open in full size.


Now it's time to go to http://www.photobucket.com or whatever site you use to upload images. Upload the picture you just created. Then use the link or upload onto WI directly from your computer.


Click the image to open in full size.

Congrats! You should have just completed your first bobble head animation. Great job!

**On page 5, post #42 of this thread are some bobble head avatars that anyone can use. Please only use the avatars I have listed. All other images are for my personal use and are NOT to be taken or used. If you are caught using an image that does not belong to you then you will be reported to the Mods. Thanks :0)**

Exclamation Re: How To Make Animated Bobble Heads (Avatars)

Thanks so much! Your instructions were great and detailed. I hope they help a LOT of people.

I used to have Paint Shop Pro 9 on my computer until it crashed nearly a year ago and I lost the program.

Due to not being able to find the registration (because I lost all my e-mails where my SN and other things were located) I was not able to mail the good people at the site and get my program back.

My older program of Paint Shop included "animation factory" or something like that and it was very easy to make animations right from the older program.

Since I no longer have that program and the newer versions don't have "animation shop" (now you have to buy that separately) I gave up on making animations. I wasn't that good at it anyway so I guess it's not too much of a loss for me!

I hope other users will benefit from your thread, though!
