Question transparent gif??
HOW DO I MAKE A GIF TRANSPARENT? Do not want to see anything except the person in the gif. No background just transparency. Do I need to do this before making gif, or can it be done after the gif is made.
This gif has a white background, but when I preview it in gimp, it is all transparent.
Could I keep the gif transparent, but just put it on a new background?
Like this beach?
Will hopefully be waiting for answers.

RE: transparent gif??
Resize the images to match/fit.
Place beach image on bottom.
Select the top image of girl with transparent background, Layer > Merge Down.

Tried it, but all I get is the first frame with the new background.
