Making an animated gif is easier than you think and is a fun way to showcase a sequence of photos. A great site to use which does not require any knowledge of Photoshop is Makeagif. Just upload your photos and it creates the animation for you. Super simple and free!
I made the one above in Photoshop Elements using layers and you can find a basic tutorial here. These photos were taken at our neighborhood block party that we had over the weekend. If I did it all over again, I would have my camera on a tripod to avoid the shake......are you getting dizzy yet?
