The Bat-Signal is a distress signal device appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics , as a means to summon the superhero , Batman. It is a specially modified searchlight with a stylized emblem of a bat affixed to the light, allowing it to project a large bat symbol onto the skies over Gotham City. The signal is used by the Gotham City Police Department as a method of contacting and summoning Batman in the event his help is needed, but also as a weapon of psychological intimidation to the numerous criminals of Gotham City. The signal has several different origins in comics featuring post- Crisis continuity. It is introduced as a new tool after the Batman's first encounter with the Joker in the series Batman: The Man Who Laughs , and also during the " Prey " storyline in Legends of the Dark Knight. In the series Batman and the Mad Monk , Gordon initially uses a pager to contact Batman, but during a meeting with the superhero Gordon throws it away, saying he prefers a more public means of contacting him. In the Batman film , Batman gives the signal to the Gotham police force, enabling them to call him when the city was in danger. In 's Batman Begins , then-lieutenant James Gordon installs the Bat signal on the roof of the police department himself. The film suggests Gordon was inspired to create the signal after Batman left mobster Carmine Falcone chained across a spotlight, his silhouette vaguely resembling a bat. On the television show Batman: The Animated Series , the signal is introduced in the episode "The Cape and Cowl Conspiracy", though a makeshift signal was used earlier in " Joker's Favor ".

This week in ds I give my students the ultimate bootcamp creative challenge — to figure out how to make an animated GIF. I chose a subject that could reflect what to do when you get into trouble in ds — activate the GIF Signal! This is one where I do some dancing around with Photoshop layers and masking out all but the essential bits. One benefit of doing this is your GIF files get dramatically smaller since they have to store less data. I hope I can reconstruct the steps!
