Re: [school-discuss] Producing Animated GIFs

Since 2002 I have used the Gimp in class for creating animated .gifs. 
Works well and students enjoy it.  This past year one of them (Emmanuel)
used a stack of post-its to draw each frame, scan, and compile in the Gimp.
He made two this way and they were fabulous.  One was of a fish swimming
underwater.  Very realistic.  We also made our head's spin using 8 head
photos.  Stick death gifs are always popular.  Love the Gimp!
