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:
- Create each of the frames for your image
- Go to File > Open as Layers to bring them all as layers into your image
- Go to Filters > Animation > Playback to test
- Then just save it as a GIF.
Easy as that. And totally free. Ah. Gotta love free. 🙂
