This is what I did with it but I'm new with gimp and am trying to figure out how to save it so it is animated when I upload it on flickr or my facebook can any help me on that or can you just not post animated pics on those sites?
Save it as a GIF extension.Gimp will launch a dialog with an option to make it an animation.Tick it.
Gimp will save the image as an animated GIF in layers.
I have never uploaded animations to Flickr or Facebook so i do not know if you can.
You could upload it to another free website host and link to it from there. Many folks will use a free hosting account just for this purpose. Just Google free hosting accounts to find one suitable for your needs.
Many free image hosters such as ImageShack and the like, do not allow animations to be saved on their servers. It simply takes up too much room.
