Several of you wanted to know how I did the animated gif in yesterday's post. I won't go in to great detail but I'll give you a rough idea of what I did. I did mine in photoshop elements but there's similar methods in other programs I'm sure
I started with these three pictures
I made multiple copies of each cat picture. (I think it was 4 or 5 of each) I layered them on top of each other alternating between the two and then the picture of Gibbs was the top layer. In elements you select "save for web" which will bring up a box to choose several options and settings. I checked the animate box and left all the other default settings alone and then saved the file. You can change how fast it runs through the series of pictures.
Now for the final Halloween themed index card
