I'm afraid my level of expertise does not come close to yours, Ego.
I don't even know what I'm doing on gimp half of the time

Would you mind doing a guide on putting .gif images into a image?


I have a cloud shape (used a cloud brush >_> wink and I want to put a gif image in it rather than a still picture. I tried Alpha to Select and Paste Into, but that doesn't work. At the most I get the .gif image fitted in the shape, but it's just as a regular picture. @_@

This may sound a bit stupid but...what are you using to unzip the brush files?

I'm not the best person to explain how gifs work -- I just half-learned the other day myself.
Like, I was able to do this by using like -- thirty three layers. But.. er.. it would be very hard for me to try and explain. @ A @;; Basically.. er.. Layer one will be the first image, layer two will be what it changes to, and if you save it as a .gif animation, it SHOULD work, but you may want to play around with delays and whatnot, and, honestly, when I learn how to do so, I will let you know. ._.;; (/fail)

Ah, really? The picture examples work perfectly fine for me. I just checked. o^o;;;

Oddly enough, I don't need to unzip the brush files -- or at least the one I had. I download them, double click the folder as shown on the bottom, and it opens my brushes. I just move them over and they work find. n-n

That's a relief~! I'm glad they are working -- which reminds me, I should sooo update them soon. (/sweatdrop) could probably do that now -A- (/hlazy)

And, you are very welcome! I may redo the graphics and make it nicer soon, but I'm very happy to hear that it's such a big help. Your image has come out gorgeous and I feel like such a proud mama -- my little babies are growing up so faft. //////

I love the love! (/basks in it)
