Might I suggest also recommending a free online image-editing site where one can edit .GIF files and edit the order and speed of individual frames, as long as the .GIF file in question is 100 frames or less? Such a site people may want to consider checking out is www.lunapic.com for all their .GIF editing needs.

Sure could have used this tutorial way back when I made this cruddy icon: :iconsonicblinkplz:

May be an old tutorial, but it's quite informative! :thumbsup:

HOLY CRAP THANK YOU SO MUCH. I WAS SERIOUSLY PARANOID.
I STARTED SUPER STARING AT IT WONDERING IF IT WAS GONNA BLINK AGAIN.

But I have a short attention span and and... thanks ; A; xD
(been paranoid with eye stuff lately, for somereason I keep seeing faces in everything around me with eyes that just HAPPEN to look right at me...>>)
so i got super paranoid with the blink thing ; A ;

For flash users at the end when you say time between them do you mean the frame rate or elapsed time?

Elapsed time, just hold one frame for a bit - then do it for the rest ^__^

I will see if this tutorial helps me, I will send you the results once I am done with my blinking animation so you can see how much you help, and if it satisfies me I will fave the tutorial. It seems easy though I hope I can pull this off. I might finish today.

i'm using photoshop to start off animating, how long do you think should i set the delay and how long in the animation (obviously depending on the animation) should i have blinking?

Honestly the exact delay doesnt matter :3
as long as its noticeable but not HORRIBLY SLOW ahaha~ :meow: Have fun with it!
