I download a web template and I need to change the text on 2 images. The images are only given to me in .gif format. Is there any way to go in and change the text using photoshop?
well yes 2 ways:-
1) the previous text is invisible/size 0px/doesn't exist at all.
2) the hard way: if some addition is to be done, should be easy.
if very little modification needs to be done, then using brain might help, like when converting 3 to 8
if huge mod needs to be done (complete change of text) and the stratergy of little mod does not works, then erase the text and try recreate the original image background, after you have typed the text.
if its an animated gif, things should be more easy, but can get more difficult too. some grey matter will be required.
