Hey guys!
Very simple question:
I have three different images (stills) where there are 3 neon lights that change their colors. I need to do several minutes of this kind of animation. Changing color (well, frames) with different timing.
I'd like to know if there is a way to import all 3 stills in one layer, cause if I copy and paste I get everytime a new layer copy and I don't want that.
Thanks a lot!

I find making animated .gif so much easier in Photoshop. when you export for web, you can adjust options down near the bottom where the play controls are you can set the looping option. I'd suggest you just have your 3 frames and loop forever.

its all fun and games till some one loses a match frame... - Me

Stretch the images through the duration of one full cycle and keyframe opacity back and forth between 0% and 100% for the top two layers.
