    My image is just a dyno sheet - kind of boring.
    How do I make a repeating image and put it there?
    I have Paint Shop Pro with the animation factory, but even if I made an animation, how do I get it to play under my name? It asks for a jpeg.
    WHat am I missing?

    Once you have created the image.
    Click on save. on the tool bar
    Then click Save As....
    The "Save As" box pops up.
    Look at the "Save As" window on the bottom of the box.
    Click the arrow on the right side.
    Scroll down the list and highlight JPEG-JFIF compliant.
    Then click save.
    Paint shop will save it as a JPEG image .
    I think the image can only be something like 60x80 pixtels to use it under your name. If it is larger it may come out blurry.
    Then it has to be uploaded to a web site or image hosting site that will let you link to it and use it here.

    Sorry, but I still don't get it.
    As I understand your directions, I am still only creating a simple jpg file, just like I have.
    I want to be able to make an animation or reapeating movement - something.
    What am I missing?

    <font color="green"> What you want is called an animated GIF. That's all the info I have, but it might help you find some more info on the web /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif </font color>

    Well to make an animated GIF in paint shop pro.You have to create a bunch of fraims and combine them with animation shop.. Just like drawing a person running in a note book then flipping thru the pages to animate it.
    Its kind of complicated to explain
    For instance: If you wanted a animated pic of a K5 crawling over a rock:
    In paint shop:
    In the first frame draw the K5 and a rock. save it
    Look up at the tool bar click window then duplicate.
    Your image will be duplicated. in that frame move the K5 so it is starting to crawl over the rock. save it
    Then just make more frames/layers for each step of the way over the rock. and save each frame/layer The more frames the smoother the animation will run.

    Then open the animation shop
    Click on File and open the animation wizard and follow the directions. It will ask you to load the images.. Then load all the frames you made in order. The wizard will animate them for you.
