Inverse the Selection

4. Make sure you’re on the “Background” layer.
5. Click “Inverse” in the “Select” menu to select everything except your product.

Work with AI

6. Get ready for the magic! Click “Generative Fill” in the “Edit” menu.
7. Type in a descriptive prompt for your desired background, like “white marble display, front view.”
8. Hit “Generate” and watch AI work its wonders. Choose the background you love!
9. Repeat with different prompts like “rustic wood display” or “broken stone display” to create multiple variations.

Save Your Animated GIF

10. Click “Save” in the “File” menu and choose “Save for Web (Legacy).”
11. Select “GIF” as the format and adjust settings like animation loop and timing.
12. Hit “Save” and admire your animated creation!

You’re all set! You’ve successfully created an animated GIF using AI. Remember you can experiment with different prompts and see what creative backgrounds AI generates. This technique is perfect for product photos, but don’t limit yourself! Have fun and explore the possibilities.
