I prepared a little mini-tutorial for you. This is just simple animation like flashing.

1. First make your doll.

2. Now open it up in Microsoft paint. Lets say you want the shoes and text to flash pink. So you use the fill tool to make the shoes and text pink.

Then press Save as and save it.

3. Now go to and press load image load up your first image (the image in step 1). Now press animate. Press the first browse button and load up your second image (the image in step 2) Then scroll down and select the animation speed and number of loops (the number of times you want the animation to run) press create animation and then you have an animated image!

This is just very simple animation. If you get the hang of it you can start doing more complicated stuff like fading. I hope it wasn't too confusing!

The tutorial is the best thing to use. Otherwise you can get Animated programs which are hard to use and also not free. So Iaza is the best.

Personally i find animation shop 3 the best because if you want a doll with around 50+ frames and one that has a lot of animation you'd have a whole lot of images to save and upload one at a time.

I really find Animation shop 3 and the others hard 2 use.

I used to use because it was very simple, but Adobe Photoshop is confusing I try to find tutorials for making a doll or blends on Adobe Photoshop, but I'm like WAT? I use and paint. Both simple. Don't need to download paint, and I don't need to download (its free). ;]

On the same note, I have animation shop, and it's awesome, but I want to do glitters. Can someone explain how to do that?
