Photoscape seems to be a really quick easy way to make an animated giff

After all even I did it

Now to do it right or in a specific way might be another chore all together. but at any rate here is the link for the program FREE and there are tutorials at this link as well

What I found on Photoscape did not work for me...I want my grandma in rocking chair rocking back and forth...not sliding back and forth like a filmstrip or up and down.  I should probably check out the tutorials.

This is not my day for reading or tutorials I guess I went to the website and couldn't find the answers you were looking for either. and I am very sure they are there with the RIGHT way of doing things but this is what I figured out.

It takes more than one graphic
I took my christmas tree and rotated it by 3 degrees and saved it, Then I took the rotated tree and rotated it another 3 and saved it, and I did it again from the last rotated tree. I had a total of 4 trees to make this one

then I took it into the photoscape program and added them one at a time in order up to the 4th one then I went back and added the 3 one then the 2

I don't know if any of this will help you but I hope so

They look great Butterfly. The changing snowflakes look wonderful.
I thought I would not have a use for this program but after seeing your Christmas tree I am thinking one with lights blinking on and off would look good. Then again I do not like flashing and moving items on websites. Ah! the dilemna. (BTW when did the spelling of dilemna change to dilemma).

I had a feeling that it took more than one graphic to create the animation I wanted.  I just have to take the time to work on it....along with the order for 3 treat boxes for Halloween and putting a zipper into a pair of slacks....ow...just not enough time in a day..and try to relax as well.   :D

I haven't work with the animation yet...but I have a question for u all out there...after you create your file in Inkscape, what software do u use to cut it out..SCAL2 or Make the Cut?  I had been using Make the Cut w/out a problem until tonight and now the Cricut Expression refuses to cut anything from Make the Cut, but will cut from SCAL2 ... mostly... I had some slight problems but when I reload the paper, etc SCAL2 will work than.

Needless to say, I am very upset with Make the Cut communicating with the Cricut E...and if it wasn't for my OCD I would say oh well, I'll create in Make the Cut and than export it as a svg file and cut from SCAL2...

but...like I said if it wasn't for the OCD part!!

Anyhow, any feedback would be appreciated.  From what I understand Make the Cut is a Memory HOG ...eats up a lot of the memory on the computer...and I refuse to up-grade a brand new laptop for one software.  And sometimes I think it's the generic UBS driver for the cutter...it's not a direct plug-in like SCAL2 is...

Anyhow, I will close out...and read any comments tomorrow.  From what I read the Silhouette does not cut SCAL2 (svg) or Make the Cut so I would be wasting my money to invest in a new cutting machine.

Hi, I will not be able to help with your questions. I have never owned a Cricut so I wouldn't know. I design in Inkscape and cut from the program Sign Cut.

Did you ask for help on the MTC forum as they seem to be pretty good at answering when people have a problem? I think most members on this forum are SCAL users. I am learning MTC but I am in the very early beginner stage and have not cut to my machine yet.

Angela may be able to help with your Silhouette questions as she has owned one for many years. I do know Silhouette users are cutting from MTC. It is the new Cameo they are not sure will cut from 3rd party programs.

At the moment I still use Inkscape to cut SVG designs using my silhouette and I really don't know yet whether I will change this when I get the New Cameo. There isn't an SVG file that I can't open in Inkscape and cut to my silhouette.......is this what you were asking Carolyn S.???

I had looked at the Silhouette SD 6x12 mat cutter but I had upgraded to the Cricut Expression because of the 12x12 mat capability...but will go back to looking at the Silhouette SD  machine again...simply b/c it works.  Somewhere, on one of the forums, mention was made the Cameo will not cut svg and/or mtc files.  I had upgraded the MTC software and I think that's where the problem is so I'm going to check to see if I can go back to the 3.2.2. version again.  Version 3.3.3 is not compatible, I guess.  This last time it was requesting I needed to upgrade the firmware..hee,hee I'm not doing that and completely lose the cutting capability...

I'll check with MTC forum..once again...but if they tell me to add more memory...I'm going to lose it...this is a fairly new laptop...should be enough memory!!

Thank you.

Hi Again Carolyn S.

I'm sure I've seen your name on some other forums, The latest Silhouette machine which is called a Cameo has the ability to cut 12x12 and also cut SVG files but you will not be able to save them in the Cameo software as SVG's.

Here is a link for the Cameo

I am not very good at explaining things and it has been a while since I have been in the free files section. I didn't realize you had not gotten your rocking chair done yet. Although I have been to your blog. Guess I am a dingbat.If this one will not work for you let me know I will try again but as I said I am not real smart about it either but I will try

Thank you .... I will send to my brother as he is working up the website for me....I think he was looking for a grandma sitting in the rocking chair...since I am a grandma and great-grandma...but the chair may have to work for him.  If possible I can send a pic to u that I have and if you can create a grandma rocking in the rocking chair, that would be great.

Sorry it took me me awhile to get back with you...my Internet was down for some reason...no my equipment...CenturyLink had a problem somewhere!!  And it's back up running...finally.
