Hour 16. Creating Your Own Animations > Creating Your Own Animated GIFs

Creating Your Own Animated GIFs

If you want to create your own animated GIFs, you have two major steps to perform. Although an animated GIF is a single file, it is made up of multiple frames, just like a piece of movie film.

Each frame is slightly different from the others (see Figure 16.3); when the frames appear in rapid sequence, the illusion of a single image in motion is created. (Most animated GIFs are made up of a dozen frames or fewer.)
