How to create Boomerang-style Animated GIFs with Darkroom Booth

by / Wednesday, 19 October 2016 / Published in Booth, How To, Templates


Creating a Boomerang-style animated gif with Darkroom Booth is easy and doesn’t require any special templates or add on software. Simply create a regular GIF and add a template for each photo in order such that they play forward and then in reverse. That way the GIF plays forward and then backward. For example 1, 2, 3, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Here is a Darkroom Booth Template that you can download if you would like to try it out. (Thank you to our friends at SnapDen for the template!)
