how to add a top image to an animated gif?
I want to add a top image to an animated gif, an image that is like the background image which will appear together with each frame, but appears on the top of the frames instead. Anyone knows how to do it? Thanks

RE: how to add a top image to an animated gif?
1. Install AnimStack
2. Make sure you're in RGB mode (Image - Mode - RGB)
3. Put foreground layer at the top of the gif.
4. Add "[fg]" to the end of its name.
5. Do Filters - Animation - Process Animstack tags
6. When you're finished with editing, make sure you do Image - Flatten layer groups before you export to GIF/ convert to Indexed mode.
