Making Your Web Pages Dance and Sing 124 Launch GIF Animator and you eventually see the Startup Wizard dialog box. Now follow these steps: 1. 2. In the Startup Wizard dialog box, click the Animation Wizard button to launch the Animation Wizard. (If you closed the Startup Wizard, select the File, Animation Wizard command, instead.) Enter the Width and Height of the animation. This should be the same as the width and height of the GIF files you'll be incorporating into the animation. In my example, the width is 75 and the height is 47. Click Next. Click Add Image to get to the Open dialog box, and then open the folder that contains the image or images you want to use. You now have two ways to proceed: If all the image files you need for the animation are in the folder, hold down the Ctrl key and click each file name. Click Open when you're done. b. If you need only a single image from the folder, click it to highlight it and then click Open. You need to repeat steps 4 and 5 until you've selected all the image files for the animation. Drag the files up and down to put them in the proper order, and then click Next. The wizard now asks for the amount of time to display each image (this is called the delay ). To set the delay, use the Delay time spinner to enter a value in 100ths of a second. (You might need to experiment with this value to get your animation just right. A value of 25 is a good place to start.) Alternatively, use the Specify by frame rate spin box to set the number of images you want displayed per second. Click Next. In the final wizard dialog box, click Finish. Select the File menu's Save command, enter a name for the new GIF file, and then click Save. To check out your animation, click the Preview tab, or select View, Play Animation. a. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
