On GIF animation
Royal Frazier was the person who first popularized GIF animations. His site is the best for wading through lots of the technical detail (and bugs) about GIF animations. Getting outdated however. (http://members.aol.com/royalef)

After you've looked at these and Royal's instructions (and maybe even try an animation yourself), if you have any questions or want some help, feel free to ask. I'm not an expert but I'll give you whatever help I can. And if you do put up any animations let me know - I'm always interested in seeing what other people are doing.

On other GIF animation software
Gif.gIf.giF is a special purpose program by Pedagogue Software for making gif animations the quick and easy way -- by screen capture. And it compresses the file to a very compact size. Gif.gIf.giF is available for MacIntosh, Power MacIntosh, Win3.x with win32s, and Win95 for $28. This program is cool. http://www.peda.com/ggg
