animated horse .gif question
Hello to all, I'm wondering if what I have in mind is possible?

I'd like to create a single .gif file which includes four seperate .gifs within it, but each of the four .gifs loops infinitely at a different frame rate.

basically i want to make this picture:

with these gifs happening in place of the still images:

can it be done? i can't figure out how!

thanks to any and all suggestions. this is for an album cover, by the way. Heart

RE: animated horse .gif question
You have to find the least common multiple of your frame rates and use that as a global frame rate, and make a succession of composite image where each sub-image changes at its own rate (i.e., remains still for global_rate/specific_rate frames).

For instance, if you want your images to changes 2, 3, 4 and 5 times per second, you need a composite image with a 60 frames/sec rate, with the image 1 changing every 30 frames, image 2 every 20, images 3 every 15 et image 4 every 12.

Thank you so much for your response! After much deliberation, I decided to use the advanced method of just having someone much more intelligent than I am do it for me!

Check it out:

Thanks again for your help. If you like the cover, the album, "Doggus Equilibrium" will soon be available for FREE [along with our other 20 or so albums, plus lots more free homemade lo-fi and noise music] at

cheers for now!
