    This is a bit off topic but a bit on topic as well:

    I've made some composites in PS CS and I want to make a .gif with
    them. My first and second attempts had the pictures misaligned (real
    word?) so the gif did not display properly. It's not for the web or
    email so size doesn't really matter. How can I aligned these so that
    it appears as one picture instead of many?

    Please don't suggest Image Ready as I spent nearly a half day
    yesterday with this. I think the learning curve is a bit too steep for
    this shallow mind. I use a small freeware program called Unfreeze to
    assemble the pictures.

    Thank you.

    You need to be more explicit.
    Do all you different pictures have the same single colour background?
    Are you cutting subjects out or are you simply just pasting the pics
    together?

    Perhaps if you placed a link for us to see the pic it would help?
    PS - pop on over to our forum and get some friendly specific advice.

    I think he's taking about object on layers misaligned but I'm not sure.
    What this has to do with Canvas Size is a mystery to me.

    Sorry about the confusing information.
    I have a picture of a friend. I have a picture of Superman. I started
    with a background layer and then added Superman. I then extracted my
    friends head from his picture. I placed it over Superman's head. I
    then duplicated the composite and made slight changes to indicate my
    friend (Superman) was flying. I made a few "frames" and then put them
    into Unfreeze which made them into a gif.

    The problem arises when playing the gif. One frame has Superman here
    and the next frame has him in a slightly different place on the
    canvas.

    I guess I just need to do more reading. Thanks for the invite to the
    forum and thanks for your time edjh.
