A : neither. i use mostly paint in combination with gimp ^^ i don't know what i like more. draw or edit images .. i think i love both equally. i think it would be much too boring for me to exercise only one of these things ;) the gifmaker i've also gained very much xD
Q : I really like your gifs and the quality is always great. what program(s) do you use to make them?
A : i use solely the gifmaker. only the pictures, which i additionally replacements are (if needed) before edited with gimp. i put value on accuracy in place of the images. but it also costs a lot of time and nerves. time and nerves that i like to invest for :)
