Making animated GIFs in Ubuntu and GIMP

Sweet.  We always knew that the GIMP was good, but a bit quirky to use.  Then the NativeRaving blog came up with some nice clear instructions on how to create an animated GIF.  So easy, even I can follow them!  Check out the link above for more detail but, in essence, you:

  1. Create each of the frames for your image
  2. Go to File > Open as Layers to bring them all as layers into your image
  3. Go to Filters > Animation > Playback to test
  4. Then just save it as a GIF.

Easy as that.  And totally free.  Ah.  Gotta love free.  🙂
