____________How to use in Paint 1
Open the .PNG file in paint2
Crop the first frame out removing the border, if you don't your icon wont fit dA as the boarder will make it exceed 50 x 50 pixels 3
Next choose a solid colour for the background that isn't on your character.4
Colour the frame and save the image as a .PNG file with the frame number in the name. Repeat this process for all the other frames, remembering to number them accordingly.5
Once all the frames are coloured head over to www.ezimba.com5
Once on www.ezimba.com follow this tutorial
____________How to use in GIMP1
Create a new file. (50 pixel by 50 pixel, 72 res (check the advanced option to alter resolution of the image))
Go to "File" > "Open as layers" > Select the PNG files of the frames.
Once they're in the program arrange them in numerical order, starting with 1 at the bottom and the numbers ascending upwards.3
Check the lock layer
option on all the frames and then colour as you please.4
Once all frames are coloured add the following text to the first layer name "(1000ms) (replace)" and then add "(100ms) (replace)" to every other layer name. You may wish to alter the timings "100ms" as you see fit.
After that is complete go to "Filters" > "Animation" > "Preview",
to preview your animation.6
Then go to "File" > "Export" > "Save as.." gif
and make sure you check the animation box and the loop forever box and hit save.
____________How to use in Photoshop1
Open the .psd file
Next go to "window" > "Animation"
and check that it runs properly.3
You'll see the layers named accordingly to the body parts and the numbered in the order that they appear. Colour your character accordingly. The layers that should be coloured by you are called "colour"
The layer is locked so colouring it should be fine.4
The most effective way to colour the icon without disrupting the animation is to click on each frame and colour as your go through them. If you get confused where the layer is that you need to colour, follow the eye icon on the layers.5
Once satisfied go to "Save for web & devices" and then save again (you don't really have to worry about all the techy stuff you see there)
