Creating a Boomerang-style animated gif with Darkroom Booth software is easy and doesn’t require any special templates or add on software. Simply create a regular GIF and add a template for each photo in order such that they play forward and then in reverse. That way the GIF plays forward and then backward. For example 1, 2, 3, 4, 3, 2, 1.
Here is a Darkroom Booth Template that you can download if you would like to try it out. (Thank you to our friends at SnapDen for the template!)
Load the 4 templates (xbdr files) and order them like this
Try playing with the time between photos to get a faster/different effect.
