    How to distribute to frames for animated gifs

    dz1
      I am making animated GIFs. I need to know how to import an image into the frames that I have and then transfer them to selected images. I know how to do it one at a time, by copy and pasting into each frame, but that is very tidious and time consuming. Is there a way to just do it all with one command? Thanks in advance.

          Are you saying that you want the SAME image in every frame? If so, put
          it on its own a layer and set the layer options to share across frames.
          Make sure only elements you want in EVERY frame are in this layer.

          If you want several images brought in one file, each in its own frame.
          Go to File Open, select all your images and choose "Open as Animation"
          This will put one image file on each frame.

              Well if you can answer the question about what exactly you're trying to
              do, I can.
