I am currently trying to rig my own custom avatar with Imageready using three different images (for when I get to 500 posts on here... someday.... :D).

I created the first layer on a document that's 80 by 80.
Having already cropped my three images, all 80 by 80, I started.

First I copied the first image. Then I added a 3 frame "tween". That worked.
Then on the next image, on the next frame, I tried adding my next image on top and hiding the other layer.

Instead, it replaced all the other images in the animation preview palette to my second image! That's not what I wanted!

How do I avoid this? I remember long figuring a way around this, but now I can't. There must be some reason it always does this.

Any advice?

Watch out for the 19kb file limit, you might be better off with a 1 frame tween.

Let's start from scratch. OK so you've got your photoshop file with 3 layers (one image on each) then bring that into image ready.

Turn off all your layers

Make 3 new frames

Then click on the first frame and turn layer 1 visibility on and the others off.

Then click on the 2nd frame and turn layer 2 visibility on and the others off

Then click on the 3rd fram and turn the layer 3 visibility on and the others off

Then select pairs of frames and tween them.

Probably a one or two frame tween with a .1 second delay is a good start.
