Today we'll be learning how to make the sparkle effect on smaller graphics with GIMP.
This will be an in-depth guide. I'm using GIMP 2.6.11 version and have created everything you'll see here in this version.
Other GIMP animations (will replace text with link when completed)
Sparkle 1 + 2
Shine + Text Shine
Moving + Bounce
Fill + One by One + Slow Fill
These are what we are aiming to create today. Very simple sparkle techniques!
Sparkle 1 + 2
Get creative! I've seen some gorgeous sparkle designs with this simple animation. If you need any help please let me know!

I tried to make an animated button ages ago on GIMP, and I can't believe I didn't ask you how to when I failed at it. Thanks for this, Anne. <3 I'll try it out later!
Whenever you need my help Bailey, never hesitate to ask. <33
It was rough at first, it's all about getting to know GIMP better and how different things work.
Mint made a great tutorial about basic GIMP techniques that are amazing for beginners.
Textures, how to place text, sharpening graphics. Gah, so much in putting together a great graphic.
I plan on going into detail about every animation above, as well as other basic how-to's for GIMP.
Make it easier for everyone out there!
Amazing! I have been making gifs with a very old program, i'm going to download GIMP and try this!
Does this program allow you to make transparent animations? c:
@Allem I loooooove Sword Art Online with a weird passion, the first season. Love that siggy!
Second, I have no idea what you mean by transparent animations. Describe it to me?
Yes! Download GIMP!
The first season is so freakin great ;u;
Hm... animations with different opacities?
When i make animations (in animation shop pro) with other opacities than 100%, the transparent background turns into a black one D:
