Pat625,

I can take a hint. However, as this was my first venture into automation, it cannot qualify as a tutorial. I will simply show what I did.

Hopefully, if it is incorrect, or there is a better way, someone will rescue both of us!

1. The original photograph, should you wish to use it

2. Use the free select tool to select the water and feather by 5px.

3. Filters\Animation\Waves. I chose a small amplitude and a long wavelength for a gentle effect.

4. Layers menu will show the created layers.

5. Filters\Animation\Optimise(for GIF)

All except the bottom layer will only have the area that changes and will show a delay of 100mS.

6. Select Filters\Animation\Playback

You will see the result when you click the start button. I found the result a little frenetic - by clicking the bottom left-hand button and choosing 0.5x, it was gentler.

7. Close the playback window.

8. Export as a GIF. By using the settings in the screenshot you change the frame delay to 200mS.

David,
I appreciate you taking the time to write a tutorial on how to put the water in motion. Very realistic. You may not think that it is a tutorial, but it really is! Not all tutorials are lengthy. I learned something from this and I appreciate it very much. I put your instructions into a .pdf file. Please put it in the Tutorials sections so that others can easily find and benefit from it as I have.
Thank you again,
Pat

Pat625,

Thank you for your kind words and converting my write-up to a .PDF.
My main concern was, as my first attempt at animation, I may not be doing it the best or most efficient way.
However, I shall obey your instructions and put it in Tutorials!

david.

David,
As Lylejk states: "There is always more than one way to skin a cat". Some will have other ways, better or not. But the main thing is that we learn from doing and from what others have done and shared with us. Here is my first attempt at making the water appear to move!

I tried to have the boat move also, instead of motionless but not sure I did it correctly. Looks like it bends a little too much.

@Pat625,

Nice try!

I've also had a try - not quite correct, but getting closer - perhaps next time.
