I have a folder with over 100 small images in it. I want to make an animated GIF, but don't want to do it one by one adding each image into the frame. I saw a video that with ImageReady you can import a folder and it will do it for you, but I don't have ImageReady. I have Photoshop CS4 and I can't figure out how to do it. I also have fireworks CS4. Does anyone know how I can make an Animated GIF by importing the folder?

In my opinion, the best program (Windows) for creating animated GIF's is Gamani's GIF Movie Gear. Check it out (there is a free full 30-day trial that only nags you), you should be able to select all of your images at once to create the animation.

The free, open-source package ImageMagick will do that quite nicely. Mac and Windows binaries are here:
