    Hi guys and gals, the title about sums it up.

    I need a GIF made for me, here are my specifications...

    Background: Clear
    Text: 'Copied!'
    Font: Size 6.75 in Bold
    Color of text: RGB = 4, 174, 218

    Animation: Fade out to blank in 5 seconds, text to show for about 2 seconds.

    Whoever can do this will be amazing, and will get a thank you in the about section of my software.

    I do got Photoshop but I don't know how to animate GIF images.
    But I do wonder that if you mean with "Clear" background a transparent background or not?

    Sounds daft but After Effects could do this easier.

    Will have a look in a bit. Just about to scoff my tea. Yummy

    As an idea,I made my avatar with After Effects..

    What size in pixels do you want the giff.

    The txt size "6.75" in BOLD.......I am just on with it and ohh my that is very very small txt size...

    Or do you mean the text size to be 6.75 inches ?

    tnx that is perfect, but yes the size of my text is quite small. When you have time can you recreate it like the image below?

    Thanks, Dave.

    By the way thanks for taking the time to create this for me. You'll get a thanks internally in my application.

    Hi ya mate..

    Done your graphic over. Made the text bigger and not all in capitals. Also made the canvas size much smaller to fit round the text better.

    I did actually use Photoshop in the end. It gives good animation results. First time i have used it for owt like this.
    With that in mind I have the native .psd file saved which will let me alter it at any time.

    i.e

    size,text size,font and colour etc etc.....

    Plus if the timing is not exactly how you imagine it that is easily changed too.

    So if owt is not right dont worry about asking me to change it. OK. :thumbsup:

    Love messing with Photoshop so this has been fun....

    It's me who should be thanking you......:biggrin:

    Just this second....

    Made a third graphic and really cropped the canvas size to fit very snuggly round the text..
    This is up and ready for you too. The bottom one.

    Take your pick..

    navigate to "Stuff" and there they are..

    Thanks for all of your help tnx, I've noticed a bug when using an animated GIF so I have created a fading label using code, I will keep your GIF and see if I can get it working properly. I have placed a thank you inside of my application.

    Would your app allow you to use an .avi file.
    After Effects would make a nice small .avi of your graphic fading out.

    I will try putting one together if you wish to try.

    I could use an avi but writing the code would be a bit silly just for some fading text haha.
