Put away Notepad, and start up Macromedia Fireworks-
We will be using MMFW to create an animated GIF file. Before we begin, we will need to create some frame images. I have called mine ship0.bmp, ship1.bmp and ship2.bmp.
Next you must use MSPaint to convert your .bmp files to .gif files. Edit each file in the following way -
  1. Ctrl+A
  2. Ctrl+C
  3. Alt+F
  4. Alt+A
  5. Select the GIF file type.
  6. Ctrl+V
  7. Ctrl+S
I will use these to create a file called shipani.gif.
