Animation: GIFs & Sprite Sheets
Welcome to the Course!
I'm looking forward to showing you some fun and interesting techniques for working with images in general and animated GIFs in particular. On our first day, our focus will be on understanding enough about Java and PNG images to prepare for later work with animated GIFs.
Before we begin, please fill out this survey to share a little about your background.
At the end of the day, you'll have a chance to fill out an exit slip. We'll go over the exit slip questions in the morning.
You can download Greenfoot for free from the Greenfoot site. There are versions available Windows, Mac, and Linux
