Making Graphics Animate for your Signature
« on: January 22, 2011, 11:58:42 am »
Few people have asked around the site on how to make animations like the one in my signature or in tvega961. Its simple and you wont have to be a brain surgeon to figure it out.

You can use - www.gickr.com or www.picasion.com to do the animations for you and give you the BBC code that is supported on the forums.


Step 1 - You need to label the images in the order you want them to animate them.

Example:

1.jpg
2.jpg
3.jpg

Step 2 - (Will be broken down in Part 1 or Part 2)

Part 1
a. Go to the sites provided above and upload your images in the order you wish for them to animate. Set the animation speed and Submit. You will have options from the site to copy the BBC code.

Part 2
1b. Download GIMP 2.6. (Type in Google)

2. Open GIMP and drag and drop th images in the order of the ones you would like to be shown first.

3. Then click Save As......

4. You will name the file to whatever you desire, but make sure the file extension is .gif

5. A warning will appear. Make sure that "Convert to Grayscale" is selected. The other box is automatcally selected. Do not change it. Then click "OK"

6. Add your signature to the GIF and set the interval to 1000. Then click "OK"

7. Your files should start to animate.

8. Follow Part 1 to redeem the BBC code.
