How would I do this in penguin land ?
With the "convert" tool I hear you cry. How did I use this tool ?
Placed all nine pictures in a new folder.
Opened a terminal in the folder or you could cd to the folder.
Used these two commands
$ convert -resize 1920x1200 -delay 100 -loop 0 *.jpg myimage.gif $ convert -resize 640x400 -delay 50 -loop 0 *.jpg myimage.gif
Which gave these results,
I decided to use " -resize " as the originals were 4928x3264 which I could have used but it would have made a pretty big .gif.
Also there are a number of guides showing how to do this same thing out there on the net with " -delay 10 " which will give you a picture change every 0.1 second. That for me was a tad quick so I used " -delay 100 " to give me a one second change, " -delay 50 " for a half second change.
The " - loop 0 " makes the .gif loop continuously, pretty obvious. You can leave out the command to just run the sequence once. Or you can do " -loop 10 " which will repeat the sequence ten times, adjust the number to suit.
Running the above on my old 32 bit Dell I thought would take a long time but the command zipped through in less than a minute to give me the .gif. Pretty neat time for an old throwaway pc.
Help me out here folks,
Which of the .gif's look best from a picture speed changing viewpoint ? The half second or the one second speed.
Ta in advance folks
