    Animation export problem


      I am using CS5 to make a simple animation to use in gif form. When I play it in CS5 it looks fine , when I open the Save for Web and Devices menu and play it there it looks ok , but when I use the Preview button in that menu it goes wrong , the images all pile up and the final image shows all the previous images. This is how it looks in the gif that I save from that menu too. Is there an obvious reason for this?

          Sounds like the bleed through is due to image transparency.  Try saving your GIF without transparency and then preview in browsers.

            Hi and thanks for the speedy reply . I actually want a transparent gif at

            the end , sorry , should have mentioned that. I can draw a series of

            transparent layers and that works ok , the problem comes when I import a

            gif or movie drawn using Pencil . It may be connected with the way it

            creates both Frames and Layers in the Layers palette , I'm not sure. As I

            say , it looks fine playing it in CS5 , and one time I managed to correct

            it but have no idea how I did it , and have not been able to repeat that.

              Problem solved , there were both layers and frames in the layers palette , same number of each when I loaded a gif from another source , or due to my following some option I thought I should do , like Flatten Frames into Layers. When I deleted all the Layers in the Layer Palette and just left the Frames there , it works fine. I think there are other problems with importing gifs from other apps though , , maybe I'd be better off just working from scratch in Photoshop.
