I'd like to make simple animated gifs to use as icons. This can't be that hard, but I haven't been able to find information about it that doesn't sound really time-consuming or that requires expensive software.
Isn't there an easy way to do this? I'm not talking about video or movies here - just an icon that switches between, maybe, 3-4 images. Lots of people have this type of icon, so how hard can it be to make one??
Could someone please point me in the right direction?
