    You may not know that the gallery of effects is from a query that walks the approx 4 gigs of thumbnail animated gifs. When it finds them it inserts a record into the gallery database.

    I need to run this program to update the gallery list manually. I run it about once a week. Previous total was 4400 gifs in the gallery, now 4873. So you all have been busy. Almost 500 new effects have been created.

    So Gallery now has 4873 effects for you to peruse.


    PS: Should be releasing new gif animations tomorrow.
    1) Fixed bugs
    2) Now auto scales animated gifs
    3) Now handles transparent gifs

    wait for it ....

    I know, finally got it fixed.

    This weeks tutorial will be discussing using animated gifs
