Image with a Horizontal Spin?
I have a question that I have a feeling is an easy answer, I hope. I have an image of two words stacked on top of each other. The original file is an .eps, but I have it saved in many different formats. I would like to find a way to have the image spin around 3 or four times when someone opens the web page. It is not a 3D image, so there are no sides, but I have a feeling that will be an option when making it.

Can someone point me in the right direction or explain how this is done? I found the global, but I don't what the image round. I just want the two words to spin around, horizontally.

I have attached an example of the image I am trying to do this with. I have made it a .gif. Is this the right format?

Thanx for the help,
mr19th

In Gimp you create a layer and rotate it slightly for each individual frame(*), and when you save as GIF, you have an option to convert the whole stack to an animated GIF (for instance the attached image is 8 layers/frames).

There may be a script somewhere to automate this, but I didn't find it.

(*) you should always duplicate the first layer and increasingly rotate it. Duplicating the top layer and applying the "unit" rotation progressively leads to blur.

PS: animated GIFs are so Web 1.0 :-)
