If you want to animate a bmp file, you don’t have to purchase expensive and advanced animation software. Thanks to modern technology, plenty of animation generators are offered for free of use online.

To use this generator, your bmp file must be hosted somewhere on the Internet like a free photo hosting website like Photobucket or Flickr.

Tips and warnings
