    What is a good program to edit animated gifs? I would like to preserve the good quality of them as well. I'm not just talking editing either, I'd like to be able to author my own animated .gifs as well.

    Photoshop only allowes me to open one frame, and destroys the sequenced animation if saved over. I've also tried using flash, but it's a bit tough with all the action scripting and crap. I tryed Xara3d yesterday, but it seems that you can only do text and shapes there...

    Any suggestions?

    if you want animation shop only (without having to d/l paintshop)
    check 'verifieds in a can'

    you didnt get image ready with photoshop?
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    if you're using photoshop (to make one from scratch), it's easier to save all your individual frames as .jpg's or .gif's in to the same folder. then open up 'image ready'>'file' menu>'import folder as frames'

    then you can set up your frame times, add effects etc, then 'save optimised as' a .gif

    then you can open it with 'ulead gif animator 5' (which you can get from fosi) and tweak it and add effects as i think ulead is definitely the easiest to use, has decent effects and good settings for saving optimised, and it's good to get started with

    I made my avatar with Ulead Gif Animator 5 to make my avatar, but I just opened a matrix trailor with it and edited it.
