I have a document open with 2 layers. Each comes from a jpeg image off my camera.

I'd like to animate them into a Gif file but when I select Timeline from the Windows menu, all I get is a blank palette window.

How do you create animated gifs with Photoshop CS 6? I used to be able to do this in PS 6.0 but can't for the life of me figure out how to do it in CS6.

Thanks.

Hello,

You are on the right track with the timeline, but I did find a video tutorial that shows how to make a simple animation:

Hope this helps.

You can do a frame animation on the timeline too by clicking the arrow next to create video timeline, but I think you have to use video timeline to control the speed of the frames.

Thanks guys. It turns out that the timeline palette window was obscured by the PSD document. I think I have figured it out but the results are disappointing (very grainy) even though I've played with the color depth and dither. I'm going to give up on this one as it's been way too frustrating. I'm pretty much convinced that Adobe, like Apple hire only left-handed programmers!

Sure thing.  Sorry to hear about the results though.
