One of my less time-consuming little projects.

Were you wearing your akaru while you were taking photos of your head gear and forget to take a photo of it???

You have an impressive collection of hats, sir. :]

And because of this post, I'm buying more hats. Now that I have shorter hair, I can wear hats again! [My long-ish hair before doesn't seem to look good with hats. Meh.]

I didn't catch this one in there. And is that your cats quick appearance in the lower left side?

I looked at my backpack and said aloud, "I think I have a hat in there." But dismissed it because I couldn't visualize it. Dammit man!

And yes, that's Miss Puss.

How long did it take to photograph and then edit together? Also, what program did you use to make the .gif? I remember piddling around with gifs years ago in Image Ready.

Deciding where to set the bust took the longest at about 5-minutes. Gathering the hats, removing and replacing the hats on the bust for the photographs, and the actual software work took only a couple of minutes apiece.

I used PS4 which has "Image Ready" built-in for lack of a better word.

Basically, I copied all 35 photographs to my local disc, opened them all up in PS4 and performed a copy, then close while pasting them atop each other until there was a single, 35-layer image left. I opened the animation dialog and turned layers into frames and re-arranged the hats so that the ones covering the eyes worked their way up to the ones which did not, but put my floppy desert hat, my fedora, and my Air Force hat first.

About a 15-minute job all said and done.

That's one clever way of making animated gifs. I'm impressed.
