Gimp if you wish to play with a graphical tool
Or from the glorious ImageMagick Library to convert all the frames in
the stills directory into an animation sorted *alphabetically*
convert -delay 40 -loop 0 stills/*.gif >web_file.anim.gif
0 loop infinitely
delay is in 1/100 seconds
There are many options man convert for details (note: it can do just
about any batch image processing job you care to mention so prepare for
extraneous reading which may come in useful if you work with images a lot )
Hope that helps, Philip
