    GIFs

    I'll soon be getting the software that I need to make my own original wallpaper,av,sig, etc. Can anyone tell me if GIFs are done all on the PC or do some people scan drawings/pics through and then use those to make GIFs? And which is easier?

    And I'm sorry if this is a stupid question but I just got my own PC a month ago so thats why I'm really not sure what to do.

    Thanx in advance for any helpful advices.

    if you want to make a wallpaper use PNG(cause its a perfect lossless format that produces a near perfect copy of the workpeice) but its a really huge file because of that.

    if you want to make animated wallpaper i would suggest using APNG(if your computer supports animated PNG's. if not use GIF(note gifs are lossy)) they hold only 255 color variations. but i think there are programs online that allow you to make .avi,/.mpg,other video files as wallpapers.

    for normal applications just use jpeg and bitmaps(holds more color and uses minimal compression)

    I'm not 100% sure what u mean, but CS2 might help as long as u download the requrements, if u draw ur own arts and put it in u can make it look like an original wallpaper,sig,av etc.

    You should probably use scanned drawings unless you have a tablet. It's easier that way.

    depends. i think hes talking about drawing by drawing animation. nahh thats way to hard.

    use simple tweening actions or use the powerful animation programs like Maya, 3Dstudio or Lightwave.
