How to Create an Animated Profile Picture using Gimp

A short video demonstrating how you can easily make an animated (moving) profile picture. This of course could be used to create other short animations as well, however this video focuses on using a few images to make a short gif animation.

This tutorial uses the program Gimp which can be downloaded free online. The video has been made for anyone who would like to learn more about creating gif animations and using Gimp.

Thanks very much for this demo on creating an animation with GIMP. My son has been wanting to animate a lego project for weeks now, and this is just what we needed. I found the instructions real easy to follow. He is going to be so thrilled! :)
