I like the site and am trying to learn how to use it. Is there a place where everything is explained without all the pictures and movement? Just the text? I am especially interested in finding out about downloading video clips, enlarging text, etc.

I really enjoyed this! I think these are great examples of how to actualize the potential of Pencil.

@sydney Actually, that sounds awesome. I was thinking almost like a GIPHY collection, except you would show each gif individually and then add some context and a link for each one. For instance: (gif showing in background) Header Text: Name of gif Subheader: Link to gif and additional notes.

@DUULZach How do you mean? Kind of like a preview of a video game or movie?

@jaswinderbrar @sydney How about creating a "gif preview" collection? i.e. a collection of 10 gifs for a specific purpose, except you can add some more context to the story.

@sydney @chromium @lenits Another One!: Your Pencil Life Story!: Create Gifs from your family videos growing up &/or use pictures from family (online) photo albums.. To create a story about your life sharing key moments! This would make a great GIFt for any occasion for your parents & loved ones! Make personalized Pencil Life Story's for all of your family members! Would love to see this implemented while I work on mine.. Remember you can keep the story unlisted if you're a private person! :) Thanks!
