    where/how to create animated GIFs thses days ???

    It's disappointing that JavaScriptKit.com is kicking into DynamicDrive.com.
    ====================================

    Adobe HELP is so awful! Adobe has totally corrupted the good old, once simple animated GIF.

    My first animated GIF circa 2000 was created in Macromedia Fireworks. Thereafter, Photoshop had back-end/affiliated ImageReady program to create animated GIFs. When they dropped ImageReady a couple of version back, it was under Window>ANIMATION in Photoshop. In version CS6, ii was Window>TIMELINE.

    At one point in version CS6 was able to PLAY "frame mode" animation of layers. Now you cannot create and insert frames and it will not PLAY. I do not want to create timeline videos. If I did, I would use Flash or AfterEffects.

    Resorting to all sorts of convoluted attempts (such as opening a previous CS5 animated GIF) was able to make it PLAY in Photoshop CS6. Then had to File>Save for Web> HTML and Images to desktop, then dragged GIF file to site root folder to insert and play in http://www.josephdenaro.com/heads/indexmobile.html

    Still furious and disgusted with >Adobe for \\crapping up// simple animated GIF. I do not want to re-learn Fireworks or another program.

    Cannot find HELP or search answer.

    Any reference links or solutions will be greatly appreciated.

    simple Answer

    TOO, tooooo simple. Why did not Adobe HELP say so? ? ? ?

    Window>TIMELINE (also but may not be necessary Window>WorkSpace> Motion). In timeline section click down-arrow in middle of blank Timeline area to choose CREATE FRAME ANIMATION (other choice = Create Video Timeline), then click on that "Create Frame Animation" line to create a frame. This also displays the icons at bottom of Timeline to duplicate, etc. frame

    That’s probably because both sites are owned and managed by the same person – the person that also formerly owned and administrated this very forum here: http://www.codingforums.com/member.php?u=1

    Question - is it not possible to just use an old version of ImageReady?

    Adobe Fireworks is perfectly capable of creating animated GIFs because that’s one of its basic features.

    Microsoft GIF Animator and GIFUp both works nicely to create GIF Image.
