Can anyone recommend some freeware that does this?

Do either photoshop or fireworks have the ability to create these?

(I'd prefer to make the image in PShop and use some other program to create the animation.)

Thanks. I have ImageReady 7.0.1. Hopefully that will do the trick.

Any tips on how to begin? Just create two layers and animate one over the other?

I don't have ImageReady on this comp. but iirc you can just do new animated GIF and it then add each image as a new frame.

I think what he said. It's not rocket science though - just experiment with it

another vote for JASC's animation program (paint shop pro is pretty good too)

i think for free proggies you can use the GIMP for it, but i'm not 100% sure on that
