Mike on the TLC Creative presentation design team developed this Independence Day themed animated GIF – in PowerPoint!

The animated GIF sequence is a series of 5 slides.

  • Slide 1 has animation
  • Slides 2-5 the motion effects/animation is accomplished with the Morph transition
  • Because animated GIFs loop, slides 1 and 5 are setup for a seamless loop

The other unique PowerPoint setup is the page size. The animated GIF is square. To accomplish this, the PowerPoint page size has been changed from the default 16×9 aspect ratio to a square size. In this case, 6″x6″.
