Animated icon making, for GIMP

Hello everyone!

I wanted to make an animated icon in GIMP, but being an intermediate GIMP-er, I wanted to start working on frame quality, textures, GIF quality..

Does anyone know how to work with textures in GIMP on an animated icon? I can add textures, but I have to add it frame by frame separately (and that's how I improve frame quality, one by one). And most of the times, the result is that one frame looks different than the other and it annoys you when you play the GIF.

That was what I really want to make. Now, all I can manage to get out is:

  • Current Music
    Lady GaGa, just her album
Take a Look

I looked in both the tags & memories, but I didn't find the answer. I use VLC (the older version) & a mac for screencaps, but I find that more often than not, the aspect ratio is all messed up. (Usually the caps look stretched vertically)

Is there any way in VLC to keep the caps from getting stretched?

Hi! I was wondering if someone could tell me how to make a banner almost exact to this one. I really like the way it looks. I use photoshop 7.0. Im not sure who to credit for this image, I found it on google. If you know, please tell me so I can credit.

Photobucket is being weird and wont let me upload my icons tonight. I got rid of some of the older graphics on the site and I don't do anything weird with resizing-excpet the 100x100 stuff. Any ideas on why it's not working? If not, then any ideas where I can host free images for my icons? I checked imageshack and you have to pay them now, but any free sites are good.
