If you don’t have Paint Shop Pro, or you can’t be bothered making squares, here’s an easier way to make a blinkie.
First of all, go to my Blinkie Maker and drag the blocks you want to use together. Then press the ‘Print Screen’ button on your keyboard (next to F12); it will look as if nothing’s happened, but basically it just copies the whole screen. Then open up Animation Shop, right click and paste.
Click and cut out your blinkie as close to the edge as you can. You might need to go to Zoom > Zoom in by 5 for a better view. Here’s mine:
As you can see it looks ugly with a white background, so make it transparent.
Click and then your image so a red and blue border appears, then go to Edit > Duplicate Selected, and do this for as many times as you have letters. If you end up with extra frames, right click each extra frame and ‘Delete’.
Then go back to the first frame, and flood fill () the first letter a different colour (e.g. white). Go to the second frame, and flood fill the second letter. Go through all your frames like that till you’ve coloured 1 letter in every frame. It should look like this:
Go to File > Save and save your blinkie, then upload to your web site. Here’s my finished result:
