Re: How do you make a simple animation that can be used in siggy's, avvie's, etc?
If you would like to make your OWN, ORIGINAL works.. I have your ways. First off, you could just use Paint. But if you get more advanced like I am, use Adobe Photoshop. I bought this program and it can be expensive. There is tons to learn... how to maek things and blah blah blah....If you would like personal lessons just PM me and I could see what I could do for you. Happy 20-10!
Now let's make the animation. First click the "from URL" if you want an image from a URL or "From File" if you want one from your computer. If you select an empty frame, it will only put a white block in the frame area.
Now the 1,2,3,4,5 will be removed when you upload the first frame. When your URL or Filepath is set, press the upload button. You can press "from file" / "from URL" several times for multiple uploading.
Now we choose the size. It automatically sets it to 200px (with an excellent scaling), but if you want it bigger or smaller, you can alter that.
We are almost done. Now you need to upload all your other frames.
Really, we are almost there. Now, you set the speed to Super-Slow, Slow, Normal, Fast, or Super-Fast. Super-Fast is the best for animated images that don't have text.
Now when everything is set up right, you click the "Create Animation" button. It is located under the frame area.
Your done! Now scroll down until it says "Your Latest Result".
To save your image, you can right-click then press "Save As", drag the image to the URL Adress bar, or press the Download link they give you.
One last thing. If you look at your animation and think "Gee, that'd too fast/slow", you just scroll up and you can change the animation again. It even saves all your frames.
BUT WAIT!!! There is white space above my image. How do I fix that?
Now if you look below it will give you two options. One is to use the image's URL and the other is to upload it directly from your computer. I'll be using the URL one. Then press "Fetch Image" if you used the URL or "Upload Image" if you used the file from your computer.
Now, if it is a gif image and under 400KB, you can crop it, emboss it, and several other functions to optimize it.
