    Yes - I should have said - Here is my first attempt at making a GIF animation for a existing image.
    I used Xara Photo & Graphic Designer.

    It won't let me add the whole animation file ( It must be to large ) Here is the .xar file the Ginger Bread Girl for you to see if you are new to GIF animations or anyone that would just like to see it.

    That's great Jeff. One suggestion re reducing file size. The only thing that animates is the wink. So apart from the winking eye there's no need for the rest of the ginger-bread man on all the remaining animation frames. So create your Ginger-bread man on the first layer (apart from the winking eye) and hit the background layer icon for this layer. All the other layers only require the eye shapes to animate. I attach an amended .xar file displaying this. If you uncheck the background icon on the top layer you can then scroll through the layers to view only this eye. I've changed the background colour to be able to view the white eyes.

    That is awesome.

    I'm just starting out - so I have a lot to learn. Thank you for the help and a laugh. I downloaded your xar file to have a look at what you are talking about. I understand NOW what you did. Great help. Thank you!

    Thanks for that Fred, missed that. By the way if you click on the post #6 link on the top right of that thread reply and then Ctrl+C the url you can then Ctrl+V to link to that post from the post number (#6), not the entire thread.
