JpegAnim 1.0


A great way to add animated JPEGs to your web pages!

Permission granted to use this applet on any website. We ask, but do not require, that you provide a link to this page if you use the applet.

Here is an example of JpegAnim in action. Want to animate JPEGs (high quality photographic images) on your own site? Scroll down for instructions!

Sorry, your web browser does not support Java applets, or you have turned them off. Try Netscape 3.0 or better, or MSIE 3.0 or better.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

These instructions assume you are using Netscape or Internet Explorer.

Step One: Download the file JpegAnim.class by right-clicking on this link and selecting "Save Link As...". It is very important that you keep the same name for the file! Otherwise it will not work. Macintosh users: you can display the same menu by holding the mouse button down over the link for about a second.

Step Two: put the file JpegAnim.class on your own web server.

Step Three: to insert the applet in your web page, add the HTML code shown below.

Step Four:Change the image file names and the delays to suit your needs. Delays are in milliseconds, so 1000 is a full second's delay. The first image is set up by the <param> tag with its name attribute set to image1 and its value attribute set to the filename for the first image; the filename must be a relative URL on the same web server, such as the name of an image file in the same directory with the web page. The delay after the first image is set by the <param> tag with its name attribute set to delay1 and its value attribute set to the delay in milliseconds.

Step Five:Decide how many times the animation should "cycle" (repeat itself). The <param> tag with its name attribute set to cycles and its value attribute set to the number of cycles is used to control this. If you want the animation to cycle forever, leave this tag out completely.

Step Six: If JpegAnim.class is not kept in the same directory on your web server, change the URL for the code attribute of the applet tag shown below.

Step Seven: using your web browser or a graphics program, check the size of your images. Your images should all be the same size. If they are not, scale them with a good graphics program in advance, to ensure good results. Be sure to enter that size for the width and height attributes of the <applet> tag, below.

That's it! If you have followed the above steps correctly, you will be able to display animated JPEGs on your website.
