Yes, how do you animate your sprites, make them move?
Lets share our ways of animating, maybe it would help younger spriters

That doesn't sound childish at all.

You said "let's share our ways of animating"
Why aren't you sharing?

Anyways for me, mostly I just grab a sprite and draw over it. Or I create different parts that are moving like an arm. then replace the arm, etc.

Seriously? You're going to continue arguing without ever providing anything beneficial to the topic? Disappointing.


Back to topic, in the (albeit rare) case of animating, I usually do it in Photoshop (or ImageReady, if you got CS2 or lower). I usually do a "1 layer per frame"-approach: place every sprite on a separate layer. Hide all but one (ie. click on the eye-symbol next to the layer-icon). In the animations-palette, you can then add a new frame. In the new frame, you hide the only visible layer and show a different instead. Repeat that procedure until done. To save it as a gif: "Save for Web and Devices" (or Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S), select GIF, hit "Save".

It does require to take apart the whole sheet and can get extremely tedious when you do lots of edits right after doing the animation, though :p
Flash is probably a little better in that matter.
