You will need a drawing program to create the frames and an animation program to assemble them. This tutorial uses CorelDRAW® to create the frames, but you could also use Adobe® Illustrator®, Macromedia® FreeHand® or Deneba Canvas™. Once all the frame images have been created, you will assemble them in an animation program. This tutorial uses Adobe ImageReady™, but you could also use Macromedia Fireworks or Jasc® Animation Shop™ to make the animated GIF file. There are many animation programs available to do this. Check Royal E. Frazier's software page for details.
