Check out "animated gifs" for images that display multiple frames at timed intervals. There are a number of graphics software packages that include animated gif makers. Probably doing a search on animated gifs at any search engine will get you all the information you need. Might be a good idea to use the search within this forum too, there's a lot hidden in here :)

I've used GifBuilder for some time for creating animated GIFs... it's a very simple program that allows you to set specific display times and different transparency colors (among other options) for each "frame" of your animation.

You create each frame/message as a GIF image in another program, and then import the images into GifBuilder to "assemble" the animation.

Try searching for "GifBuilder" on tucows.com...

Ahh, but it seems to only be available for Macintosh! Oops.

I've had good luck using other CoffeeCup (www.coffeecup.com) software for Windows, and they put out CoffeeCup Gif Animator for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/ME.

You can also search Tucows for the words "animated gif" (without quotes) to find other programs for your platform.

I use AnimateGIF, but fear the app is now discontinued. I'd offer to send the zipped exe, but I can't seem to find the original at all on my machine.

Aside from a number of many gif-only editors, Macromedia's Fireworks will be the go-to app I think.

You may even be lucky enough to download a functional demo from Macromedia directly. If not, it's not expensive, and well worth it if you'll continue this type of production in the future.
