    Ok, thanks to the Mod man, I now have Microsoft GIF Animator. I've built my first GIF file, but I can't control the cycle rate, only the number of cycles. I need some help....:frog:

    Click on the image tab, and go to duration. Each image will have its own duration period, which will need to be set.

    Yep, that's the answer alrighty. I made that mistake first time I used it, my lame work-around was to insert multiples of the same image, until I saw what I was doing wrong.

    I was wondering what the heck that duration was doing, since changing the value wasn't doing anything that I noticed! It was only affecting the first image, and as I look at the gif while running, I see the delay in the first image. Funny I couldn't figure that out. Guess I'm an idiot after all......(open door to comments......).

    Yep, change the setting for each image, and remember it's in miliseconds. :)

    If you've got ticks it's because you were out playing in the bush, try lighting a match, blow it out and touch it to the back end of the tick right after you blow it out, he'll pull his head out to see what the hell that was about then you plick him off and squish him.

    No, you don't count, if your posts aren't understandable then they aren't real posts. Which means your corrected post count is actually only about 5.
