Animated argh...


Ever have one of those days when you can not remember how to do something?

I have my new siggy gif:

and I have a "Proud to be Premium" animated gif:

And I would like to combine the two into a single animated gif so it would look like this:

But for the life of me I cannot remember how to do it. I wouldn't need to do it if the signature box would allow 350 characters or didn't count some characters as 2 or 3 characters (now I understand Alpha's gripe about that) but anyway... maybe I'll remember how to do it tomorrow, I just felt like sharing tonights frustrations with everyone...

In Gimp, I would open the animation, make the canvas size big enough to accommodate both graphics, switch to RGB mode so the Staff sig has all the right colors, and paste the Staff sig into each layer. If the animation is optimized, you'll need to un-optimize it first.

I don't know how it would work in the program you use.

Re:


What you describe is how I remembered doing animations in the past but it isn't working for me tonight so I must be doing it wrong. I re-sized the Premium graphic (currently 26k) to match my Staff sigs size and didn't optimize it because I knew I would be doing more with it. The layers is what is getting me down because my program doesn't handle multiple layers very well... or maybe it does and I am just tired. I think I'll sleep on it and maybe it will be more clear to me then...
