How to make your own animated name signature?

I use a couple of free programs for this. I am quite fond of, both the editor and express. To create the gif file I use

I start to erase stuff on an image using Paint.

Step 1 – Find a suitable copyright free image

Step 2 – Get rid of the extra’s in Paint and find a suitable font to go with your image on

Step 3 – Resize your image +/- 300 px width in Paint again

Step 4 – Take your image over to and use the want to make it transparent. Use the Shift key to select more areas and the Cntrl key to deselect.

  • Select with want
  • Invert selection
  • Copy
  • New image – check the both boxes
  • Save image 1 as PNG

Step 5 – Erase the eye and add a little stripe for a closed eye

Step 6 – Save image 2 as PNG

Step 7 – Load your 2 images up to, to get a delay in the moving eye you can upload the open eye several times.
