I am working on an animated Ecard for a client but the software that I am using is not working as well as I would like. The finished animated gif that it generates is dithered and the quality not good enough.
The animation is 15 jpgs, each jpg appears for 1-2 seconds and animation does not need to loop (final frame stays put).
I will supply the 15 jpgs. All you need to do is setup and export the animated gif.
(I can export as a SWF file here and the image quality is great but I need to also be able to use an imagemap and that won't work with SWF files.)
Project is presumably simple and needed ASAP (same day).
UPDATE - There are a total of 14 jpgs for this animation. They are already correctly sized and in a Dropbox folder which I can give you access to on request. The first 13 images should appear for 1 second before the next frame loads. The last frames should remain on screen when the animation is complete. The animation should not loop. No transitions or effects between frames are needed.

Here's a link to the animated gif that I created. You can see how the image quality just isn't that good. [url removed, login to view] I can export as a SWF from the software that I have but the imagemap code doesn't work. I would actually prefer a SWF file but the links on the ornaments have to work. Any chance if I give you the 14 source frame jpgs and my source file from an early version of Fireworks that you could do the whole thing (links and all) in SWF? If so, what would that cost?

Please disregard my comment about SWF files. Let's just stick with and do it as an animated gif. Less confusion that way.
