ok so i know how to edit pics in photoshop and have a full sequence of frames and all that. I've been able to put it into windows movie maker and i've watched it and it looks good. but i dont know what program i should use to create a gif file. i've tried using flash but its so complicated and it doesnt seem like i can create a gif file anyways. what are some easy to use programs that i can create gifs with?

Photoshop is the easiest way to go in my humble opinion, go to window on the menu bar and open the animation window (depending on what version of PS you have). Then follow this tute... http://www.tutorialized.com/view/tutorial/Basic-Animated-Gifs/41670

I use Jasc Animation Shop. You can download it here: http://ftp.jasc.com/pub/en/ani311en.exe

I think the link still works.

I was checking things giffy out last night with mike.b/adam.c's river gif. Seems that Adobe is trying to pimp Fireworks by hiding/burying the animated gif features in CS3.

Bear in mind I started with Fireworks and I prefer it's gif making mechanism to what's in Photoshop.

Which programs do you guys use when you make an unofficial video?
I use Win Dvd Creator and Windows Movie Maker but I wanna try a new one.
Can someone help me with some websites where I can find some good programs for that?
Thanks

I haven't used Macromedia Flash for GIF's here at the competition but that's the one I use when making animation and GIF's...Hmmm, but I'm not sure if it's allowed to use here in the PSC. Rolling Eyes
