Make Scanimations

What you need:
  • 6 images from an animated gif
    1 static image (will be rotated to make 6 images)
  • A printer
  • A sheet of paper
  • A sheet of transparency
  1. Drag-and-Drop your images below or use the image uploader to load 6 images. Six-image sets will be converted into scanimations.
  2. Right click on the links that show up below to download the images for printing
  3. Print "lower" image on paper & "upper" image on transparency
  4. Carefully run transparency over paper w/printed image to reveal your Scanimation!

Select 6 equal-sized images (or a single image) and drop them/it here

Note: The images above were generated from a series of six 250px-by-440px images. The html canvas above will stretch/squish your images unless they are exactly that size. You can download the undistorted images for printing via the links that show up in the area below after the image(s) is/are processed.

Want something to quickly test this out with? Download/unzip these images. Then select and drag all six of them into the dropzone above.
