Now the fun starts.......On the top right side of the screen click on "Switch". Then on "GIF Animator 4.0" in the little drop down box.

'

A box like this should appear in the middle of your screen....Click on "Animation Wizard".

If not....Go up top and click "Help" then "Startup Wizard".

'

Now click on "Add Image".

'

'

Let's go find the Candy Canes...Remember where you put them? When you get there  highlight them and then click "Open".

'

Here you might want to drag "CandyCane" to the top of the box.....To get the files in the proper sequence......It's not necessary in 2 framers......But might benefit you later on with a more complex animation.......Now click "Next".

'

I'm omitting the graphics on the next three steps as I feel confident you can handle it.....As the screens appear......click, next, next, and finish. If all went well you should be looking at a screen similar to the one below.

Now the action starts.....Just above and to the left of your CandyCane.......Click "Preview".........Now that dude should be jumping back and forth, left to right......probably faster than you want...so in that same general area click on "Edit".......Now go up to where you see "Delay".....and  increase the settings to 50.... You should do this for both frames.....Now "Preview" again.....The action is different....Just play with the delay settings and preview until action is how you want it........it's your animation!!!
