How do I make an animation?

Post by tgbtom » July 12th, 2011, 5:30 pm

I have a set of 6 Png images I made from scratch for my own units attack. I would like to compress the PNGs all into an animation/gif then upload it to the forum for my unit topic. I have looked all over the web for tutorial on how to make gifs but I just can't find one that makes any sense. So if anyone could help, please let me know how to do this using Gimp :) Thank you! :D

Now that you've got this figured out, it would probably be better to post your animations in the Art Workshop, where they will get more attention and critique from artists.
