This is a great explanation of what photorealism is by Andrew Price from Blender Guru.
Photorealism is everywhere, even in things you don’t even expect it… Think about IKEA Catalog… yeap, all those beautiful shots are made with CG.
Want to know the basics… see this video.
Looking for a more effective way to create .Gif files for only help tips and other purposes, I stumble with this wonderful tool.
It is lightweight and easy to use. Very intuitive. Only available for Windows, but the source code is available at: http://screentogif.codeplex.com and also maintained at https://github.com/NickeManarin/ScreenToGif
This is a quick 10 minutes video where you will learn how to download, install and start using ScreenToGif.
Hope you enjoy it… Happy Coding and Happy Designing.
