    Use ImageReady that was included with PS 6....

    make a new document
    paste any art in that you would like to animate on a new layer.


    view the Animation pallette. (in the window menu)
    -you can make additonal frames and set the duration of frames among other things in this pallette (look at the icons in the status bar of this window... see em? they do the same stuff as other adobe apps)
    -create a new frame

    Move the object that you want to animate... press play and watch your two frame animation....

    Go from there.

    Have fun.

    I would go download the free "gif animator" (just do a yahoo search for it) because it's a fantastic program, easy to use, and works great. Make gif files from imageready and put them together in Gif Animator. The program includes variable delay times between frames, effects, and more.

    I agree use imageready but it is easier. Make sure all your graphics are numbered consecutively (01.gif, 02.gif ... 10.gif, etc) the use the import folder as frames option. Your done, just save your animation.

    I could email it to you tonight. Do you have a cable modem? If not, it's not all that large a program. Let me know if I can email it to you--don't want to do it without your permission.

    No sharware app will have the features, power and flexibility that Photoshop and Imageready do. You already have the best apps for the task, why use shareware?

    Rinse: You're right, I also have Flash MX, but for now, I'm only looking for simple programs cause I don't have the time to learn a whole new program like flash.
