Help Create Animated Twinkle Stars


The free online image editor has another unique feature, nowhere found on the internet!

Now it is possible to create your own animated gif with twinkling stars. You decide where you put the stars and when they should blink.

Click on the "Add Stars" button in the toolbar to open the toolbox:
Add Stars
Choose stars on the right. The stars will appear on your image, where you can move them around. The stars should be placed on DARK parts of the image for best results.

See the help pages for details.

Examples of what you can make in a few simple steps:
(There is a maximum of 9 stars!)
1. First (off-course) upload a picture.
2. Select the "Wizards" tab and click on the "Add Stars" button.
3. Click on a preview star (see 1).


4. The star appears on your preview image (see 2).
5. Now you can drag the star to your desired position.


6. Set the delay time (3).
This is the time between the loading (begin) of the image and when the star starts shining.
If you fill in 100, it will take 1 second before the star starts shining.


7. Now you can click on another preview star and repeat steps 3 till 5..


8. Now lets see the result and press the "Apply" button.

Wouldn't it be nice if you can start blinking a new star when another one just 'died'?
Well, don't worry, with the free online image editor it is possible!

For handling and positioning the stars see the description above here.

1) Now, instead of setting the times, you set the previous star!

2) If you select behind "Star 2" (instead of 'begin') "star 1" with delay "0",
it means that when star 1 'dies' star 2 starts blinking immediatly.
If you select behind "Star 2" (instead of 'begin')"star 1" with delay "100",,
it means that when star 1 'dies' star 2 starts blinking after 1 second.

3) Above you can repeat:
- behind the text "Star 3" (instead of 'begin') you select "star 2".
- behind the text "Star 4" (instead of 'begin') you select "star 3".
- behind the text "Star 5" (instead of 'begin') you select "star 4".
etc...



The above set will create the following image:
