    I typed in animated .gif file software on Google and came up with 146,000 sites at the following web-address:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=animated+.gif+file+software&btnG=Google+Search

    Here are the first few:

    GIF animation software = http://www.mindworkshop.com/alchemy/gifcon.html

    GIF animator = http://hometown.aol.com/royalef/gifanim.htm

    Try this:
    http://www.gifworks.com/
    it is an online .gif maker, free!

    "Create your own special effects with any GIF -- even animated ones! Resize it, colorize it, optimize it, and jazzercise it -- then save it and take it with you. You name it and you can do it! If you have any feature suggestions let us know."

    hey guys, thanks for your info [​IMG]

    i may have done the same search in google, however, having a very small time to be at the net, i thought it better to ask in this board for the websites and then come back the next day, rather than try each one that google would show. and it helps, really!

    thanks again [​IMG]

    Microsoft Word has an "extras" package on one of the installation disks that allows you to upload animated gifs (or maybe it's just animated text and banners, I don't recall)---and you can download even more at Microsoft.

    Word has an excellent webpage creator---and it's right here right now in most computers!
