@Shiyojin I don't want make gifs I just converted a .avi into a .gif and wanted to make it faster, turns out it just went slow when it was on my pc, when I hosted it on imageshack it was great.
I prefer to animate with flash, but it can be a pain in the ass to export to gif nicely, so I use Fireworks for gifs. Photoshop precision with a flash like linterface. Any other small gif proggies I found were usually compilers or just really bad drawing applets. Most things have a frame delay function, and usually its gonna be faster on your machine than embedded on a page.
