The attached picture is supposed to be animated, but it is not working in my web page (Created in Compozer and Gimp).  Please see attached file.  I would like to know how to make it animated.

The picture didn't attach, so it's hard to tell.

this one is not animated, so i started with the original from http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/clipart/results.aspx?qu=computer&sc=23#96. After download, the picture will be in your My Documents\My Pictures\Microsoft Clip Organizer folder and we can start :-)).

When you open an animated picture in GIMP, you can see its layers (animation phases) - see attached picture. If not, choose (in GIMP 2.6) Windows > Dockable DialogsLayers. If you want to see each step of animation , you can uncheck all eyes in the list, leaving only one layer visible.

When saving a picture with layers in GIF format, you will be asked what to do with layers... choose Save as animation. In the next dialog delay between animation phases can be input.
