Step 1: Making the Pics
To perform the conversion from any photo type into gif and the resizing if necessary we can use a great program called PhotoFiltre. http://www.photofiltre.com/ This program is free, and easy to use. Just Down load the English version and install. The programs best asset along with the conversion and resizing is batch processing. That means we can do entire sets of files or folders full of pictures in one step. Load PhotoFiltre go to Tools>Automate / Batch.
Step 2: Resize Images
2nd. Click the Action tab then click ok to perform the conversion and or resizing.
Step 3: Side Step If Using Video
With this program you can open any avi or wmv movie (sorry no quicktime).
1. open the movie file you want to make screen captures from.
2. save the pictures at the different intervals you would like.
3. Begin at step one to start the conversion / resizing.
Step 4: Putting It All Together
1st. Drag and drop the files you want to use into this area.
2nd. Pick how long of a delay you want betwwen each picture. I normally start with 15, then 30 etc.
3rd. Click make animated gif, and check out how your picture came out.
Step 5: Last But Not Least
just google the term avi gif
or animated gif for more programs and explanations
Enjoy and Good Luck
