The animated image to the right was created using Adobe FireWorks. This page offers a quick summary of the steps involved to create an animated gif image.
- Open FireWorks
- Create a new canvas/image and designate the size
- Instead of Layers, use the State tab and consider each state a frame of your animation. Right click to add new layers, or duplicate the existing and then make slight modifications.
- Use the Export Wizard to export to the web as animated GIF.
- From the Animation tab (on the left) set the time for each slide (frame) in 100th of a second. Such as 200 = 2 seconds. Export and save when done.
