Help needed – absolutely nothing to do with crosswords! Well, almost…On some FifteenSquared blogs covering barred thematic puzzles the answer grid is presented as an animated GIF showing different aspects of the fill (changing letters, highlighting etc). For some time I’ve been trying to incorporate a slideshow into a website (in FrontPage) but without success. I just realised that I could achieve the same thing by using an animated GIF instead. I’d guess, though, that what can be achieved in this way would be limited – 256 colours, the dimensions fairly modest – but it would still be something and it wouldn’t require tortured html coding.
Trouble is I don’t know how to make these GIFs. I do have instructions for creating them in PhotoShop from a video file (not actually tried it), but I want to use still images. Can anyone help me with understanding how to do this?
If you can respond here that’s fine, but do feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE: Found a function online – just posting a test GIF here to check it works (it seems to!)
