 I think that's a good size for a gif.

 and I like what you've got there.

 A good trick to get seamless looping of animation is to key everything in the first frame, and copy/paste all of it into the last frame.

 Good job

Steve here is another parent lighting test, it seems to be ok?



Thank you Johnar, the last time I really used GIF animation was 20 years ago, with windows95.
I am a bit rusty and I forgot about the end looping, that needs to be done.
Johnar or anybody else ??? is there a free GIF animation program, I can download? at the moment I am uploading my avi's to online GIF editors.

Great job. The lighting looks pro to me.

 I'm lucky enough to have an old photoshop7 disc which has 'image ready' bundled with it. (probly over 20 years old now, but still awesome for gif creation. (image ready).
  Looking on ebay it'll still set you back around $300, (used) which is not much different than what i paid through newegg, probly 10+ years ago.
 It was a big expense, but will probly do me for life, so i'll never regret buying it.
 
 not sure about a good free software download, but a bit of a google found this,

https://free-video-to-gif-converter.en.uptodown.com/windows

only 9.2mb.

good luck

You can get Photoshop CS2 for free off of the Adobe site.
