Okay my loves I need to know something okay as of right now I can make totally awesome Gif Images I mean just look at my awesome Sig. Anywho, my problem is when I make them into Gif images they aren't...like Gif images you know images that float over other images. How can I change this if I can change it at all? Just for your information I first make all of the changes or the image itself in Paint and then use other software to make it into a Gif image but it stands out with a white border like a JPEG. Is my problem that I am starting in Paint? Or is there just a configuration I need to know about...PLEASE HELP! X-O :angry: X-O :angry:

Hi Jenosy ^_^'

Hmm... the only gif images I think of making is my animated banner, just like on my userpage... but I always start out in my graphic making program, if you have photoshop or anything similar...

I save mine as a gif, before I reach ms paint.

The moment I was set free, I was dragged back into this nighmare again. The problem was... I didn't realize how much trouble I was going to be in this time...

*Cries* So you're saying Strange-suki is that my problem is that I start in Paint...*CRIES* Dammit! I had a feeling that was the problem. But in the past it hasn't mattered a Gif was a Gif. Oh well I'll figure it out OH and please everyone else don't hesitate to put in your two cents *feels old* thanks Strange-suki. :)

Well AHHH *feels the love* I first save it as a Bitmap image and then get into my better software and save it as a Gif image. I think I see where I messed up. *Crying continues but then stops* Wait I think I may have an idea *evil laugh* thanks everyone and I'll totally take you up on your suggestion Maverick-suki. ;)

So you are wanting to make an animated picture hey?

Okay you what you need to do is for each image that you want to be animated, you need to make a separate layer (image file). The program that I use to make gifs is called Giffy - I got it ages ago though, so you can probably find something better if you look. Anyway, that program layers them on top of each other to make it animated.

I don't use photoshop - so I'm not sure how that works - anyways so there is my 2 cents on it ;) Good luck :D

Remember GIF images are limited to a 256-color palette.

Yes, that's the problem with saving as GIF in MS Paint, Paint compresses the picture as 265 colours, so you get a gritty effect. Try saving as BMP in MS Paint, or just copy and paste into Photoshop or PaintShop Pro, then instead of "Save As", use "GIF Optimizer", settting the compression at the lowest level. that should give you a smoother image (I didn't know that until recently too...)

as for animated images, there's many programs you can use. But I started out in UnFREEz (just google it to find it), it's free to download. Basically you have to make your own individual GIF images, and UnFREEz takes those images and "sews" them together in an animation. The only downside to this is that the separate images flash at regular intervals (like you can't have one pic going faster than the next).

If you're looking for "images that float over images", you have to make the background transparent. If you have Photoshop, then you can just erase parts you want transparent. Before I got PSP, I used MS Photo Editor (it comes with Microsoft suite). There's a button called "set transparent colour", you can set the background transparent. Just make sure that the background is a solid colour, and that the background colour isn't anywhere else in your picture. The trouble with this is that since it doesn't optimize, the GIF somewhat compresses, and you get a slightly pixelated image.

Hope that helps!
