1st: I'm purdy sure this thread will be moved as soon as Fragger stops by ;)

2nd: You need a prog that can make animated .gifs (ie. link several gif pics together ... kinda like a very fast slideshow). I'm sure Adobe has made such a prog.

3rd: best way to learn (unless you need an answer to a specific question) is doing tutorials, the more the better.

Here are a few I've snagged from dcemulation.com's board, not sure how many are on animating gifs tho', but they should all be for PS.

Fragger, do you think you could add those links to the offsite tutorial thread, they might be good there as well.

Image ready. It's what I use. It's better if you have an idea of how animation works. Watch some of those old Hanna-Barbera cartoons from the '60s. It's really easy to figure out what moves and how to move it. In those cartoons all the characters have a tie or some kind of thing around their neck. That made it easier to animate just their heads. Also, if a branch is going to break or a boulder is going to start moving, you could see it was a different color as the rest. Another godd way is to get some flip books.

Links added.

It's not about pushing a button. You need to make your elements on separate layers using photoshop and then import it into IR and create the frames and time the animation.
