Gimp: Adjusting frame rate?

The icon I'm using in this post is the one I'm trying to edit. I want it to go a little faster...

Obviously, I can do this by cutting out some layers, which I've seen discussed here, but there're only so many I can cut before it starts looking choppy.

I'm new to Gimp, but not to photo editors. I've found a screen or two that references the frame rate, but they either A) don't go past 100/sec or B) go up to 250/sec BUT only work for settings in the preview box.

Am I missing something? Or is the only way to speed up a gif through cutting the layers down?

If you double click the text on each frame, you can change it from 100 to 50 (or whatever). Press enter to lock in the change. I think you can also "Save As" and set the frame rate for the whole gif to a lower number in the second dialog.

The commenter above me is right, but I thought I might be able to explain it a bit clearer.

You can specify the length of each frame by renaming the layer. Put (XXXms) - where XXX is the number of milliseconds you want the frame to last - after the layer name and press enter to save the change.

If you want all the frames to show at the same frame rate, you can adjust it while saving.

SWEET! Thank you so much for the screen shots and further detailed explanation! I never would have guessed titling the layers like that would do anything!

Thanks for doing that! I didn't have my screenshots handy. :)
