I’d like to tell you a story of bread and spandex.
First, there was this tweet…

Then @noiseprofessor up and @JimGroom-ified that breathtaking toe-tapping, spandex spectacle and transformed it into a piece of beauty.
Strangeness ensued with Cat Breading

which led of course to the subsequent DS106 Cat Breading Assignment
OF COURSE the natural progression would be for @cogdog to do some @jimgroom breading
Well, friends, we’re on a roll here, why stop?
Now you’ll notice I added some bread heads, specifically @jimgroom and @twoodwar but I left some blank bread heads. This is mostly because it’s 1:22AM and I’m toast. But also, because maybe YOU would like to add some heads to that bread.

Photoshop instructions ahead.
(I’m sorry I want to learn GIMP but I’m in love with Photoshop. I can’t leave her. Yet.)

When you open an animated GIF in Photoshop, open the animations menu bar. You’ll notice as you click through the frames that it also switches to the corresponding layer visibility (noted by the eye). Select all frames. Insert a new layer. Paste in the head. Meticulously go frame by frame and nudge the head into the right place. I wasn’t so meticulous, hence the bobbing effect.
There are cool ways of using masks when you only need to change movement on a section, but this glorious dancing piece it’s no benefit.
Well that’s how *I* did it. If you know a better way, please tell me!
