Seems creating smilies has temporarily taken over my poetry writing for self expression lately, lol.  

I've had a few requests for a full listing of their link codes, so I thought I'd do a list here in announcements for everyone in case you'd like to use the ones I built that aren't in the smilies' Passion box.  I didn't want to bring each smilie into this thread, as there's quite a few, so if you want to see the associated animations in full, you'll need to go to my personal web page here:
http://kit.netpoets.net/

To get them to work here at Passions, you'll notice in the list, that I have a space between the first "<" and "img". You'll need to remove that space when you place the text into your post.

Here's the latest one (story of my life at the moment, lol)



*The code for that is the following (minus the space between < and img)
< img src="http://kit.netpoets.net/raceclock.gif">

[Since Acire brought in a collection of the smilies below, lol, he's let me update them so the code is below each for easy reference (just need to remove the space after the "<" in order to use ... thanks Acire!]

Hopefully that muse of mine will get back in gear soon. Best wishes to all.

Thanks everyone! I really love doing these, and I'm glad you enjoyed! (and lol @ Acire - you took Ron's 5 limit graphics to the limit, rofl)  

As to what I use, and how I go about creating them ... there's a few steps involved.

For creating the images themselves, although I've got Adobe's Photoshop, I actually like using Picture Publisher (by MicroGrafx) better. It's what I learned on several years back, and I really like it a lot - just because it's familiar. I generate each individual frame in Picture Publisher in their ppf format, then save each one as individual gif images when I've got them the way that I want them (kind of like creating cartoon animation sequences of frames).

I created an image strip below, so you can see the separate frames of this one:





Once I have the images done, I use Alchemy's Gif Construction Set to pull all the individual frames together, then using that software, I play around with the timing of each frame (that gets fiddly, like 20/100ths to 70/100ths of a second). I create the final animated gif from that software.

I've had a copy of Alchemy's Gif Construction Set for a few years, and upgraded to their newer version not long ago. Here's the link to the software:
http://www.mindworkshop.com/alchemy/gifcon.html

You can use the Gif Construction Set for tons of different things, from banners, to marquees, to silly or professional animations. I've got a few more on my animation's page on my site that I did a few years back under the middle section "Animated Gifs and Others". I've got my nephew popping out of a basket with his dog, my nephew and niece's heads "bouncing" .. things like that.
http://www.geocities.com/kwmccallum/animmain.html

The camping squirrel, and the hummingbird in flight were frames I captured from my video camera, then worked on them in MicroGrafx and pulled them into the Gif Construction Set afterward to create the animated gif.  I also used to love to play around with morphs, but I use a different product for that. I did a 3 generation morph of my grandmother, mother and myself a few years back which is on my site as well (you'll need to click on the picture to make it play). I used to just play around with my nephews and nieces, warping their faces and doing all sorts of goofy animations. I love playing with this stuff.

Feel free to e-mail me or ask any questions in this thread if you like, and I'll see if I can help you if you're interested in more information. If you like to draw, this is a great outlet.
