How do you make animated GIF images?

  Midsman2005 21:58 25 Oct 2005

Hello Forum,

I have found a new hobby...and it is making amusing little videos for my friends that live around the world!

My next project...

Does anybody here know of any free or very cheap software package that would allow me to make simple animated GIF images? the sort you see in messenger programs or on websites.

Like this sort of thing click here but obviously not as complicated and probably more exciting!

Thank you for your help.

Well, I've not used it myself (prefer NOF) but there is an open source web-dev program called NVU. It should handle that no problem. If not, it should be simple enough to find out the relevant bit of HTML that is required and design two suitable images yourself.

Come on over to the Webdesign forum if you want to know more.

I used UnFreez from here click here to create this click here from 4 pics of my cat asleep in a chair.It was my very 1st attempt,so its running way to fast,but the UnFreez app offers adjustment to the framerate.Only other app needed is a converter from jpeg to .gif,before simply drag/drop the gifs into the UnFreez window.
