Also good for drawing poni (this guy is crazy for not doing it in Inkscape, but anyway):

The borders are aliased again, which could mean you're still resizing after switching to index mode, or maybe that's just a result of using so few colors (I do see some very limited transitional colors at borders). The current filesize limit is 75 KiB, not 30, so 13 frames shouldn't even begin to be a problem, unless every single frame is completely different and unoptimizable. Again with the frame mistiming (100 ms instead of 80). It's like you forgot half the lessons you learned, man. Remember to follow the process in order and check that you did everything you were supposed to until it becomes automatic. Understanding the basic limitations of the GIF format also helps, if you ever need an explanation of why something happens in a certain way.

Not that chain icon. The one for keeping aspect ratio locked when scaling.numsOic wrote:Layer linking is completely unrelated to image or layer rescaling, so the chain icon is irrelevant to the process either way. If you want to rescale a bunch of layers at once, you'll have to do one by one, or perhaps save them into a separate image, image-scale that, and then import it back, but either way it's a cumbersome process.

You actually can rescale a bunch of linked layers at once (at least in 2.8), you just have to use the Scale tool rather than the menu option.
For the blur tool, which tool let's me select a straight angle to apply the blur to only that region? I only found the freehand/rectangle/circle selection tools.
I'm not sure what exactly you mean by this, but freehand selection tool is also used to select polygons, if you simply click instead of clicking and dragging the mouse.

I thought it looked okay but some of the edges seem jagged and I'm not sure why. Thoughts?

However, I Googled it for you: When you're done, and before you save, use the Filters -> Web -> Semi-Flatten tool.

That said, I'm using the tan theme and imitating antialiasing against gray still looks better than no antialiasing at all.
Grue wrote:There is an APNG input/output plugin for GIMP, but I couldn't get it to work (specifically, the output part). I can see it being useful for images that look good without animation, but also have a bonus animation if it's supported. Or display different things for different browsers.
