Hay there Creepy.... I have gone ahead and moved this thread to the Newcomers Section as this is a great "How to".

Thanks for taking the time to put this all together and for sharing with all of use.

 

Not a problem.  I'm proud that this guide was good enough to be pinned in the Newcomers Section :honoring:

I may update this guide from time to time as I'm still learning how to do this myself and I'd be more than happy to share what I learned with the rest of you.  

 

Also if anyone else wants to help update this guide I'd be more than happy to edit my original post with this information.

Speaking of .gif files last night I found a treasure trove of WoT signatures.  I'm sure many of you know about it but it doesn't hurt to link it here.

 

So yeah I'll have plenty gifs to work with :)

I made a .gif signature! So proud of myself that I figured out what I needed to do.

When you open a pre-existing .gif image in GIMP (like an animated text logo from the website in his guide), it appears as several layers representing the multiple frames of the .gif. Well you need to condense all your other layers into one image, then copy it so that you have the same amount as there are frames. Then merge the frame layers one by one into copies of the main image. Then when you export it as a .gif, say to replace the existing layers.


At least....thats how I did it. :P

I'm happy that people are able to use this guide to get them started on making some forum signatures.  I expect I'll be updating this guide soon or at the very least I'll be doing a video tutorial with some new things I've learned.  

 

Still haven't messed with GIF images yet in GIMP but I have confirmed via the GIMP forums that Sanguis' method of adding a GIF to an image is the way most people do it.  

 

However I have just found an easier way to add GIFs to an image and by just found I mean I literally found this while typing up this post.  I'll be including this in a tutorial update this weekend but for those of you in a hurry here is a site that will make things a lot easier: http://www.online-image-editor.com/.  I would suggest finish everything else in your signature first and then upload it to the site.  Then you go to Wizards > Overlay Image and you upload the GIF which you can then resize and rotate.  After you're done just right click and save it to your computer.  I am so happy that I figured this out and I will definitely be using GIFs now in a lot of my signatures that I make for my clan.

I would have added this to the first post but unfortunately I exceeded the amount of pictures for that post.  I did manage to add a GIF section to the first post which I know is something that's been desired for a while now.

Thought I'd share with everyone the signatures that I've made so far for myself and my fellow clan members.
