    Couldn't you do this in Photoshop, and export as .gif?

    I can try to make it for you. I'm getting ready to leave, but I have a few minutes. Just upload the three images as a .zip and post them or PM them to me and I'll try to do it really quick. Also, how many seconds do you want between each image?

    EDIT: Just noticed you said email. insutantu@gmail.com

    Set the workspace of photoshop to video.

    And then make frames from layers by selecting all layers, and then right-click. (im used to windows, no idea what right-click is on a mac).

    Then save for web and make sure you select gif as output.

    Just so you're aware, right-clicking on a Mac is right-clicking. ;)
