Okay, here's the deal. This is my 489th post, so I am going to be able to have an avatar soon (hopefully today). I would like to make an animated .gif myself, but I don't know how to go about doing this. Could I get some instructions from you wise gurus out there? I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Thank you for making this thread. This is also my 489th post and im getting ready to make an avatar. :)

Still trying to think of what to do though. Two of my favourite things have already been done. 24 and the hitchhikers guide.

Maybe a hockey avatar.....

Thank you for the link, Blue Velvet. I'm gonna start working on this right away.

No worries... :)

Here's another but from Adobe this time. You can also download a PDF of the tutorial...

Good luck and we're looking forward to seeing the results. :)
