Animated GIF question from a complete beginner
Hi, I have just started using GIMP with the goal of making an animated GIF. I was first trying just to animate two pictures:

1.gif http://i.imgur.com/dCtZX.gif
2.gif http://i.imgur.com/smzBv.gif

I first open 1.gif and then 'opened as a layer' 2.gif
(when I do this it looks like the two images are superimposed on each other - like this: http://i.imgur.com/uLLzM.gif)

I then tried 'Save as Animation' with the option of 'one frame per layer (replace)' and 'use disposal entered above for all frames'.

The result looks like: http://i.imgur.com/mCqZk.gif where the first frame looks normal but the second looks weird

I would really appreciate any help!

RE: Animated GIF question from a complete beginner
Thanks for the reply. I am starting out with PNG files (I converted them to GIF in Paint.NET) so maybe I can try what you said about converting them to be indexed together. But I am not really sure how to do that in GIMP - can you give any advice on that?
