    Okay title says it all?

    I'm going to put my ads on a lot of sites and I've noticed animated images w/ text convert better...

    I was wondering which software to use? I have Adobe Fireworks CS5 but that doesn't seem to be the best... There must be better alternatives.

    Any ideas?

    I used to use Fireworks but I forced myself to learn Photoshop. I actually really like Fireworks better for a lot of things, it runs a bit lighter than Photoshop and it's much more intuitive for doing some tasks. I seem to remember that Fireworks had a super easy wizard style interface for making GIFs.

    I do a lot of animated gifs and I have tried just about every software, including the ones mentioned above. And the best one by far is Bluementals Easy GIF Animator 5.2

    You can find cracked versions every where. Trust me :D

    I have used Animation Shop for years. It is bundled
    with the older versions of JSC Paint Shop Pro.

    Do a Google search for "Fo-psp7". You will get a pre-cracked
    retail version by FOSI for free. (NOTE: Don't forget to scan it).

    I used to use Imageready (came with Adobe CS) but now (since version CS 4 i think) imageready is included into Photoshop itself. Thats what i use now.
    Once you know your way around Photoshop, it lets you do incredible things.
