Alrighty! I shall play around a bit! Well, alot! I could kiss you lol! XD
Thankyou sososo much for your help, I most likely will be PM-ing you for questions, either that or I shall pull my hair out in frustration. :P
Weeeeeeeeeeee!~ Thankyou! I shall read through the tutorials, and see what works best!
However, the animation I have its a bit too big, so when I do resize the canvas, the animation kinda gets cut off. >3< I'll need to find a way around that.
Ohhh, so the Layer Mask is how to get it in a circle shape I take it? I haven't done much with those, so I will need to play around.
Gah~ everyone makes these cards look so easy! I don't even know where to begin ;_;
Alrighty!! I have done the steps that you have given me, about opening the gifs and editing them and whatnot.
I got my animation from Youtube ahah and I have edited the bits that I want, I just need help making an eCard from it. Like BabyD's example I showed you, I want a small animation on the eCard, and the main image. However, when I save the animation as a GIF and then I re-open it in photoshop, it looses the animation. Is there a way to copy the animation/GIF onto the JPEG without having to copy all the animation layers?
I'm sorry if I sound confusing, its kinda hard to explain. :P

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Thats probably what I did wrong, I have the image saved as a GIF. whereas you need to have it as a video first. I might try it that way ahah. I didn't know that you had to have a video first. ^^;
I shall try it the video way, and maybe then it may work!
Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!~ Thankyou sososo much for your help! I really appreciate it! :D
and so far so good! :D Also, is there a way to save 3 different GIF images from one animation? Because I want to have 3 different animations on the card, but I don't want to have to edit the slides every time, because there are alot D: But if not, I'll just cut out the bits I want! ^O^

aww thanks hun! I feel like the only one who doesn't know how to make these.
I have googled on how to use animations with a still image, but I always get confused when they show the steps, because when I open a GIF image, it looses it animation. ;_; but I don't think CS3 has ImageReady.
uhhh, I have never really saved a gif before, as it looses the animation when I open it in photoshop
um, I pictured something like this. How it only has a small segment of the eCard is animated and the rest is a still image. and I don't even know how to do that T^T
I have seen some tutorials that BabyD gave me, but I don't think I have ImageReady to try it, plus there seem to be a lot of steps to it O_o But I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks alot :D

ohhh I have photoshop CS3 and GIMP, but I try to research it, but it never makes sense or when I save the file, the GIF looses its animation ;_;

So amazing. <3 So dark and grungy. Absolutely perfect for Vicious!! I love the lighting. Like how it seems to be blinking. Very cool. I love this. <3 I know that Bebop wall was taking a lot of time! And I can understand getting stuck...especially when it comes to vectors. But maybe someday you'll finish it. :) Until then, I'm sure your friend will adore this card! It's awesome!! <3

This looks pretty darn epic! I'd love to be able to watch you make one of these. I should make some more gif cards ^^ I have an idea of one I'd like to make...
