I have used Image Ready for years now, and love the simplicity of it! Creating an animated gif is a very painless process - you have a window that can easily add frames of the animation to, set the timing, establish tween frames, etc.
I cannot for the life of me figure out how to accomplish in Fireworks - the help areas offer an overview of what an animation is, but no real help (to me anyway) as to what the process is.
Can anyone please steer me in a direction that will justify Adobe eliminating Image Ready for what appears to be a "much-more-complicated-than-it-needs to-be" replacement?
If anyone has any tutorial links or other technotes they can share, it would be greatly appreciated...
