Part IV: Adding Pizzazz with Multimedia > Creating Your Own Animations

Hour 16. Creating Your Own Animations

Ever visit a Web page where you see a spinning logo, steam rising from a picture of a coffee cup, or graphical rules that flash, strobe, and dance? You might not have known it, but you were experiencing animated GIFs, a special kind of inline GIF image file that moves when viewed through a Web browser.

You're about to learn how easy it is to create these puppies all by yourself. At the end of this hour, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What's an animated GIF?

  • How do I insert an animated GIF into a page?

  • How do I create the various frames that serve as each step of the animation?

  • How do I combine the frames into a single, animated file?

  • How do I customize aspects of the way the animation plays, such as how quickly the animation flips through the frames?
