  1. Hi Tracy
    Thanks for your tutorial. I really like your illustrated videos.
    One thing though – I’m not a regular Photoshop user.
    In the example above with the blooming rose. After you’ve changed the video on Photoshop to poster edge, how do you then save it in a suitable format on Photoshop to import as a video into Storyline? Photoshop seems to want to save or export things as a png and if I then import it as a png into SL, of course it won’t play as a video.
    thanks so much

    • Thank you, Kate!

      To save the video in Photoshop, click on File, Export, then Render Video.

      Best regards,


  2. Thank you so much for sharing Tracy. I am new to this, very passionate and totally inspired by your examples!
