i need help? i crop the image. theres alot of frames? what do you do with them?



What kind of problem is it? Describe it more clearly.


Do I need to merge the frames into one or what? I'm trying to fix the glitch and put it as my profile. I never did gifs on GIMP


As far as my knowledge of GIMP goes, I think you just have to save it normally after cropping, since GIMP would crop all the frames and save it all into a single gif file automatically when you export it as a GIF. Though since i don't use GIMP for cropping anymore, you're just going to have to test it or go find a tutorial on the internet



nevermind i figure it out. i did it differently tho

Open GIMP
File~> Open

Filters~>Animation~>Optimize for (GIF)

If you need to crop, go ahead and when you finished go to
Filters~>Animation~>Upoptimize

Then File~>Export

+Select File Type (by Extension)
~>GIF Image
Check Mark: As animation

Animated GIF Options
Check Mark (if its not check mark): Loop forever

Question. I know how to make the gifs. I just don't know how to shrink them into showing more in the gif. If that makes sense? If you know what I'm talking about and can help, please let me know. Thanks! :3

I've puzzled about this, but I think I know what you mean. There are two options for reducing the size of a gif. There's crop, which isn't what you are talking about. And there's shrink, or scale, which is what I think you want. With scaling, you can shrink the width and height independently. It distorts the image a bit, but you end up "showing more" as you put it.

In GIMP, you can find this under Image->Scale Image. There's a little chain between the Width and Height. Click on the chain if you want to scale them independently.

In Photoshop, you can find the same function under Image->Image Size.
