Manipulate text within animated GIFs in Photoshop CS4

This video describes how to use Adobe Photoshop CS4 software to create and manipulate text in animated .GIFs. GIF stands for Graphic Interchange Format, a type of image file which allows short animated sequences to be displayed. A preselected scene from a television show is opened as a GIF in Photoshop CS4. Animation window is opened by selecting window then animation. The text tool is selected and a textbox is drawn by clicking and dragging. Photoshop CS4 then applies the text to the frames which compose the GIF sequence, allowing you to quickly add captions and other wording to the file without manually editing each frame.
