Combining Two Animated GIFs on One Canvas - Drop & Drag Solution

Hello,

I have two animated GIFs.  I want to combine them onto one canvas.  

I have Adobe Photoshop, ImageReady & Ulead GIF Animator & PhotoImpact.

I can resize one to make it big enough to hold both.  But, when I try to copy the second image things go awry.

Is there any program I could use that would easily let me combine these two images into a bigger canvas?

Or, is there some combination of keystrokes you can suggest that wil allow me to cut & paste ALL of the one image int the other?  When I try ImageReady, all I get is a slice of one image on al frames of the other.

Thanks!!

Ubee..

a466-ub52,

The simple answer is that there's no easy way to do this. Remember that an animated GIF is like one of those flip books, flipping past quicky on your screen. What you want to do is have the pages from two different flip books flipping on a single new page. The only way you will be able to do that is to create a whole new flip book (animated gif) big enough for the images for both. Then, frame by frame, combine the images. However many images you have, that's how many new images you'll need to make and combine. Also, if your two different animated gifs have different numbers of frames, you'll get some funny results. All in all, it just isn't very feasible.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...

Hello lherrou ,

Thanks for your reply.  Is there any editing program that would be easiest to use?  Simplicity & free trial are most important.

Thanks!!

IF I were doing this, I would do the individual frames in Photoshop, and then use Gif Animator to assemble them.

However, you might want to think about an easier way - I don't know what you are using these for, but you should be able to run them next to one another on a web page, etc.
