I haven't used IR for a few years, but I've got a 4 layer psd & want to make an animated gif from it & don't remember how to convert it. Can someone post a link please? The NoHelp file seems to have left that part out. ;)

Thanks.

1. Open your PSD file in PS, then click on File > Edit in Image Ready.

2. In IR, open up the Animation palette if it isn't already. Window > Animation.
Open the Layers paletter, too. Window > Layers.

3. If there isn't already an open frame in the Animation palette, click on the arrow on the upper right hand corner of the window and click on New Frame.

4. With the 1st frame selected, go to the Layers palette and make all the layers invisible except for the layer (or layers) you want to use for the 1st frame.

5. Set the duration of the frame by clicking on the duration time at the bottom of the selected frame in the Animation palette.

6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for each layer you have or number of frames you want to create.

7. Click on the Play button on the Animation palette to see the animation in action.

8. Click on the Stop button to stop the animation and do something else.

9. Save the animation as a GIF file.

I think I have everything covered. If not, just holler! :)

Steps 3-5 were the key. Problem was I didn't want a "New" frame, I wanted "That" frame! ;)
If I were to add anything to your steps it would be, "...File> Save Optimised as a .gif" to Step 9.
It works great! Thanks again.

You're right, Frank, save the GIF file as optimized. Thanks for pointing that out. I wrote the instruction steps from memory so i missed that.

I was thinking of putting a link to this in the Sticky, but maybe it would be better from you as someone would probably have more questions?

If you don't have PS & Image Ready, I found this stand alone program:

UnFREEz
http://www.whitsoftdev​.com/unfreez/ (external link)

UnFREEz is a high-speed Windows application that will take any number of images, saved as separate GIF files, and create a single animated GIF from those images. What makes this program unique from its competitors? First and foremost, UnFREEz is freeware, which means you may use it forever without paying a cent or feeling the slightest bit guilty. Secondly, UnFREEz is incredibly tiny, meaning you don't have to spend forever downloading an extremely bloated piece of software. Finally, it is so easy to use. Just drag and drop some GIF files from Explorer, set the frame delay time, and hit Make Animated GIF. UnFREEz will take care of the rest, including automatic interlacing and transparency detection. So download UnFREEz now and try it out for yourself! If you like it, keep it; it's free! This program is written in non-MFC Win32 C++, and should not need any additional files to run.

Edit 2014: Here's one I made using PS, Layers, & Unfreez.
