Wink How to Make Small Drawings and Animations in GIMP. In This Thread, So Far I Have: A Perfect Drawn Circle, A Star, and A Heart

Hi! Making small GIMP animations are very easy to do. I started out clueless after downloading GIMP, and after less than an hour, I already had this figured out! Just follow this simple guide.


These are the steps for every animation.

1.) Open GIMP

2.) Open a new document, _____ pixels. (When you choose your what you want to draw below, I will tell you how big to make the document.) Also, click on "Advanced Options," and under "Fill With" select "Transparency."

3.) Zoom in at 800% (in the bottom left corner. It will say 100%, just click and change it to 800%).

4.) In Toolbox, select the pencil tool and the smallest brush size.

5.) Follow the non-numbered instructions below. after you've got your shape, just shrink it back down to 100%.


(See the bottom of this post for different features you can do to your shapes.)


Now just look at the screenshots below and switch back and forth between the one you want to do and GIMP until you have it copied. Here are your options:

Circle
(18x18 pixels)
Click the image to open in full size.

What You Get:
Click the image to open in full size.


Star
(11x12 pixels)
Click the image to open in full size.

What You Get:
Click the image to open in full size.


Heart:
Click the image to open in full size.

What You Get:
Click the image to open in full size.


Animations
ALL ANIMATIONS MUST BE SAVED AS NAME.GIF. REMEMBER, IT MUST BE SAVED AS A GIF!

Drawn
Starting from where you want it to start being drawn, after drawing the first pixel, go up to "Layer," and make a new layer after it. Do this after every single pixel that you draw.

Blinking
BEFORE drawing your shape, go up to "Layer" and make a new layer. Then make your shape.

Fill-in
After you make your shape, make a new layer. Then go inside of your shape and fill in the first row with your pencil. Then, make a new layer and fill in the next row. Do this repeatedly until you have finished filling in the shape.

And for all of these, make sure you:
Save it, and make sure to save it as name.gif. Also, make sure you click the "Save as animation" during the export, rather than "Merge visible layers." That will just merge the layers and make it look like the non-animated shape.

You should! It's totally free (and safe for download. It's free because they have a lot of sponsors when you download it, but you can just click "decline" on everything).
