I recently disovered that it's possible to make animated gif pics (as in logos to a website or whatever).  As I've never been interested in neither painting or animation I would be happy if someone told me how to make my own animted gif-logo-pic (and that without mocking me too much)  :wink:  

uhh..I have a shareware version of PSP...very dusty though  Cool

I think psp 7 has an Animation Studio or something similar... it allows export to animated gif, AVI, etc.  You just add the images you want in the proper order and - voila - instant animation. Smiley

I use gif construction set for everything.  It's a really easy to use program, despite its age.  http://www.betterwebber.com/test/gifcon32.zip

i'm interested in this also.  I'm been wanting to make my own animated avatar for a few weeks now, but don't know how to animate.

Photoshop comes now with Imageready. You can do really cool effects with it. I have to explore it, though. I've only managed to do what I did with that GIF construction set ... I need more research.

Photoshop 7, the animation program that's also by Adobe (forgot the name) and a few months of experience with both is all you need to make kickass graphics Smiley

No.

However, that "now" Nathe mentions is since Photoshop 5.0.

1998. Now.  :-?

BTW, some tutorials and links of interest:

http://graphicssoft.about.com/cs/imagereadyani/
http://www.agag.com/forum/, and
http://www.home.eznet.net/~stevemd/animinst.html, this being pretty complete.

I'd refrain from making an animated avatar, considering that some people here suffers the "explorer-loads-the-images-first-and-then-the-content" syndrome. Animated GIFs compression scheme usually yields big file sizes.

Ok, I've downloaded Joe's gif construction set.
Thanks for all the quick answers, guys.

Just a little warning: Too much animated gif's can be very
annoying (like typing all text in caps...)

That only demonstrates that you bought your version directly from an Authorized Adobe Reseller.

I use unfreez(look it up!). It gets the job done nicely and is free. Which is better than spending hundreds for a bulky art program just to use something that's an add on.
