Step 1:

Open photoshop make sure you have a background layer so we can see the effect better at the end. Now start typing whatever you want to have as a gif.

Step 4:

Now that you've drawn the rectangle of your liking.

Make sure the rectangle layer is selected then pull out the gaussian blur. You do this by going to the toolbar above then Filter>Blur>Gaussian blur

Step 12:

now select both frames and the rectangle (click on them while holding CTRL or CMD) and right-click the rectangle layer and create a clipping mask. Make sure the rectangle layer is above the text-layer.

Step 15:

Determine how many frames you want to have. I went with 20 frames but i am bad at photoshop so idk what the hell i'm doing. Look at it as a pizza you can chop it up in more slices if u want but its still the same pizza.

Thanks for the tutorial! For a beginner like me, that is actually pretty helpful! Appreciate you making it so simple and comprehensive, now it's time to give it a try myself. Do you have any basic tutorials on how to edit photos on iPhone? I understand the mechanics of it, but I still can't obtain what I'm setting my mind to. I'm picturing these great ideas, and in the end, my editing just turns out to be a major flop. I'm definitely doing something wrong... :( Any advice would be highly appreciated!
