I decided to make a short tutorial on the techniques I learned when making my daughter's Birthday GIF. This uses Gimp 2.8, a free open source alternative to Photoshop that I like very much. Animated GIFs can be annoying when overused, but they can be very catchy, entertaining ways to make a point if you can create your own. Here's how. More specific details and a transcript are available at http://mini-lessons.info/Gimp18 with all my other tutorials and demos on Gimp and other topics.
