Avengers-Jack Peggy

I made a Tumblr gifset!

Baby's first gifset.

I finally broke down and paid for a year's subscription to the full version of Photoshop. Ever since I upgraded to a new computer that can't run my old CS2, I've been getting by with Elements, but I'm doing more covers and other pro stuff now that needs the full-featured program. So naturally I'm using it in a responsible, professional kind of way ... to make animated gifs of television characters.

I'm pretty happy with how it came out, although I should have cropped the third one so you can see more of Jack's hand. That one was the first gif in the set that I made, though, and I did a ton of editing to it, so I don't think it bothers me enough to start over from scratch making a new one. (Foolishly, I didn't save any of the intermediate, pre-cropping stages.)

One thing I've noticed making Agent Carter vids, and it's also true of gifs, is that the first season is so desaturated compared to the second season, almost sepia-toned. You have to really lighten and saturate it to get it to match ...

I thought that colouring was very much on purpose - season 1 was desaturated to get a 40ies look, since most people associate this with black & white or sepia pics. The only specs of colour was Peggy Carter. For the 2nd season they went all bright and colourful to match LA/Hollywood and possibly also Peggy having come more into her own, being bolder. I thought it was a brilliant idea and worked really well. I find most tv and film creators have very little regards for the difficulties they are causing us vidders with their creative choices. *huffs* ;)
Yeah I agree with all of this, and I loved it too (the choice to make s1 more desaturated, like Peggy's life is a little washed out before she comes out of her shell a bit).
Hey, you have to practice using the new toy--er, I mean tool...
