Many of our users have already picked up on how to use this neat new tool, but for those of you who need a little tutorial we’d like to walk you through how it works…

Begin by launching ImageChef Sketchpad:

When Sketchpad launches you will notice a little animation icon at the bottom of the screen, click on it to pull up the Animation toolbar…

Only the bottom of your screen will change, and you will see a variety of new options, get started by adding elements to your sketchpad, once you have a base image to work with click the PLUS sign to add on another frame…

After you have added a few frames you can preview your animation by clicking on the little Screen icon in the bottom left hand corner of the screen…

You can speed up or slow down the duration of a frame by clicking on the Tortoise(slow) or the Hare(fast) icons. If you make a mistake and want to delete a frame, simply click the trashcan.

Once you have finished your animation save it to your gallery, share it as a template that other users can insert their photos into, or share it on Facebook, Twitter, or a variety of other social media sites.

Head over to ImageChef Sketchpad to give it a try and don’t hesitate to email us if you have any questions or problems! We hope you enjoy this new tool, and we are so excited to see what you will do with it!
