    I need some advice from anyone who has a Mac program that can be used to make simple animated gif files. I like to make signature tags and I use ImageReady right now, which is great, but I'm looking for something similar to the Paint Shop Pro program for the PC--something more novice friendly and with lots of ways to animate non-animated jpeg files and turn them into animated gifs. I also want to learn how to use animated alphas (which I have) and create names with them also. I'm sure I can do it in PhotoShop and/or ImageReady, but there's so much to learn there and I'm too old to learn that much I think. Anyone know of anything?

    Yep, I was going to suggest GIFfun as well. I've found it'll do what you need it to without any hassles. :)

    Thanks Janey and Max A. :) I'll check it out. Will it allow me to manipulate an image so as to create separate frames that I can then put together to create an animation or allow me to add things like glitter?
