Depends a gif like the one in your avatar is ussually made with a video player that has a option to grab a screenshot, I dont have one anymore but I used to use I believe intervideo or something along those lines. Rotating banners and what not can be made in photoshop.

As for Evil Ira I still rock CS3, Ive heard mixed opinions on CS4 so for now Im just sticking with what works.

Well it all depends on what you will be using it for, Cs3-Cs4 would be best because it's up to date. But the thing I like is the Photoshop toolbars and layout stayed similar throughout the years. The biggest thing is when looking for brushes most will be for Cs and up more than likely, so Cs-Cs4 would be best but if you can't get ahold of them then work with what ya got.

Stupid question to you, necessary to me: what is needed in order to make a gif?
ImageReady or AnimationShop would be your best bet. I would personally prefer imageready as you could find more tutorials out there. And I just find it easier to use especially if you have Photoshop experience.

Can anyone answer me this:

What is the proper way to make a "smudge" background?. I've seen a few of them, I like them. Good ol' Plazz used to make lots of them. Here's an example:



I talked to Plazz back when he made it, he gave me a very small tutorial, saying he used smudges to pretty much create the whole background.

I am just now going to get back into Photoshop, and I completely forgot how to play with smudges.

Any help on creating a "smudge" look on the backgrounds will be appreciated.

The way I smudge is I get a brush (preferably a splatter brush or the default chalk one it's like 36px)

Then paint on the sig with the brush and then grab the smudge tool and smudge it, an of course you will want to play around with the settings of the smudge brush (scatter, angel jitter, etc.)

Depending on your brush that you use and brush settings the results will vary.

Here are some helpful tuts I found which should assist ya:

Sounds good, and most of the time just messing around you get some pretty good smudging.
