  • Is there a fairly easy way to create animated GIFs?

    Has anyone here made animated gifs?

    I have tried following some step by steps using GIMP but I'm not even able to find the animation package for the newest version.

    I'm trying to use a short video clip.

    OK, turns out the latest version of GIMP comes with the video package.

    I am still not doing something correctly. It is sideways AND saving each individual frame.

      gifninja seems to create a usable GIF, but how the hell do I use the damn thing?

      How do I now resize it? I cant even post it here. No idea how.

            Never actually tried it but I'll give it a shot when I get time.
            There is something I want to get off my chest. It's about that summer, when you went away to community college. I got an offer to do Playgirl Magazine, and I did it. I did a full spread for Playgirl Magazine. I mean spread man, I pulled my butt apart and stuff. I was totally nude. it was weird, I... I mean you probably didn't hear about it because I went under the name of Mike Honcho. But I just wanted you to know that. If you can hear me, if it got into your brain somehow. That I spread my buttcheeks as Mike Honcho.

                  For a free program it seems to be packed with goodies. I have sat down with it several times to learn some tricks but tend to get frustrated and I never seem to have enough time.

                      Gimp is great...but the help files and man pages seem to be written by a software engineer....still if you know something of Photoshop you ought to be able navigate through Gimp.

                        I use this one by Ulead, makers of PhotoImpact. Ulead / PhotoImpact is pretty robust with the tools & features, but you don't need a PHD to use it like with any Adobe Product; it is pretty intuitive.

                        Disclaimer: I didn't bother to see if there is a free or trial version I linked to. (I have the whole suite.) There is a hack to use it for free out there though.
