Need help with a GIF
I have a GIF image that I need to add something to, but I don't want to add it to every single individual layer. Is there a way to add it over or behind the entire GIF so that it remains static while the GIF's frames cycle - like a watermark or something?
Or if not, is there maybe a script-fu that copies and merges a selected layer over every other individual layer automatically, without messing them up?
I know I'll probably have to just end up manually adding it to each layer, (ugh, sooo many layers...), but a less tedious way to do this would be much appreciated!

AFAIK you cannot have a fixed background, so that will be a copy to each layer. There must be plugins for that, but I cannot be more specific.
