    [SOLVED] PNG, Gif, JPEG (or JPG) howto's


    I've been looking around, but I suck at searching. I even used this as a search term: "how to make a PNG image" and "how to make a Gif image." And all I'd get is stuff about setting up servers or web development, etc.

    All I want to do is make animated and non animated Avatars, and to make animated and non animated sigs (I'm assuming that sigs are signatures, and that signatures are those horizontal rectangular boxes, with cool graphics in them, at the bottom of people's posts. Is that right?).

    I've been wanting to learn how to make them for a long time, but I did not have time for it, before. Now, I have time.

    Can someone point me to a howto that a Linux n00b can understand? I'm using SuSE Linux 10.3 - if that is needed info.

    Oh, yeah. I googled it, and all I could turn up was how to do it in Windows. Not interested in Windows, so I din't even look at those links.

    Check out GIMP. It is included with SUSE by default. You can just doodle away and then save it as whatever format pleases you. For an animated gif you need to create layers for each frame of the animation.

    Check out this for details on the animation setup -

    Very Good!

    Thank you!

    As usual, the answer was right under my nose.
