I made the animations in my gallery from original artwork of which most were created by other DeviantART users. All artwork was animated with DP Animation Maker. It is a program that lets you animate images with smart, time-saving, tools. It's an affordable program that you can find on Steam or developer's website where you can get a free trial. I recommend it for anyone wanting to get started manipulating images in a simpler program (compared to something intense like After Effects, where you probably need to take a training course).
