To make animated picture in GIMP... 1) Create each slide, also known as frame, in a different layer.. 2) Once you've got all your slides, you are ready to optimize your layers. 3) Press Filters, then Animation, then Optimize (for GIF) 4) You've got your animated picture! 5) If you would like, change the speed of the animation. You see where they layers are in the layers, channel, paths box? There, you will see something like 1000ms. So, just change the value of ms, and you will be set. 6) Save your file in GIF...that's the only one that works when posting on forum with animated picture.. hope that makes sense, if not, just ask me questions.
