School Starts - Life Update & More!

The time has come, and school started on Wednesday the 26th of August for me. I just have been so so busy, and am taking on two AP classes (Advanced Placement) AND a zero period! Waaaah I'm going to say sorry in advance, because I don't know if I will be able to update this blog very often >.< ..... I don't get very much sleep and have tons of homework! Anyways, I wanted to inform all of you and hope you all understand! Now on to more stuff!

I have included some YouTube videos for creative cooking and D.I.Y. projects! Hope you like them ^-^

Cute + Cool Food to Make!


D.I.Ys of the Week!



I was also thinking to have a blog sale (makeup) if anyone was interested - comment below if you are! In addition to that, I am planning to do a live broadcast on the app YouNow if anyone would like to tune in ♥ I would just like to get to know you all, and give me questions to answer too! It can be a Q&A type of thing! 
         

Well, I guess that's all for now! Hope to blog as soon as I can, so stay tuned for the next post!

------ Updates ------
I am almost going back to school! My AP Bootcamp starts this Monday and I am not feeling it. Goodbye summer, hello to another year of stress. :( On a happy note, I tuned into an hour-long BTS broadcast on the V app (kpop at it again hehehe)! I was so happy that I got to watch my first BTS live stream ever, since the iOS app released recently! BTS went live in Bangkok, Thailand. Click here for iOS and here for Android. Here is a cute GIF of Jin I made with Photoshop CC. (GIF tutorial in a previous post)

Summer was overall normal for me. I didn't really go anywhere notable, and not much happened. I was barely active on my social media, but will be when school resumes. I guess the Bootcamp for my AP classes would give me an opportunity to do something worthwhile, and I would get to see my friends again! :) I am curious about what my sophomore year has to offer me, and I hope this year will be a great school year for me. Although I won't be able to update this blog as much when school starts, I will certainly try!

Photoshop CC GIF Tutorial!

I am excited to be making my FIRST ever tutorial! Today, I will be doing a "How-to-Make a GIF from a YouTube Video By Using Photoshop CC" Tutorial! >U< This is great for Tumblr users, GIF lovers, or bloggers in general! Let's get started! 

STEP 1 : Visit http://keepvid.com/ in order to download the YouTube video you would like to use. Copy the link of the video, and insert it in the download box. Choose the first option "Download MP4 Version" - (Max 480p). The download will begin right away.


STEP 2 : Head on over to the Adobe website and make an account if you haven't already - click here. Then, go to https://creative.adobe.com/products/download/photoshop?promoid=KSPCP to start your FREE 30-Day trial! This is if you do not want to pay for the full program. After that, enter in your skill level with Photoshop and the downloads shall begin! Go to Adobe Creative Cloud, login, and start the actual Photoshop download. 

   

STEP 3 : After all of the procedures & downloads are finished (this may take awhile xD), open up the Photoshop CC program. Since you already downloaded the video to make into a gif, the steps should be quite simple. 
3a.  Go to FILE and scroll down to Import. Click on Video Frames to Layers. 

3b. Select the video you downloaded from your computer. Then, choose Selected Range Only, check Limit To Every 2 Frames, and check Make Frame Animation. Use the small black triangle-shaped-ish sliders to narrow down which part of the video you want giffed (totally made up word, but you know what I mean). Press the PLAY button to view what you've narrowed down.

3c. If you're satisfied with your GIF, go to FILE, Export, and Save for Web (Legacy)! A screen should pop-up. Make sure you've selected GIF, Looping Options (Forever is what I usually choose), and press PLAY to view the actual GIF!

3d. Once you press SAVE, you're done! Check your computer downloads/files to see your GIF! You can rename it if you wish.

*** Here are MY GIFs I personally created using the above methods, and GUESS WHAT?! They're of Jin hehehe :)***
P.S. : I'm so happy the V app finally released for the Apple App Store!!! I can now imagine I'm Facetiming my Jinnie :3 LINK (if you're interested in this K-Pop Madness) : http://me2.do/GHIsLtgm

Hope you had fun with this tutorial and, as always, stay tuned for more! - Jenni
