    It's the best picture of me taken in the past decade. A happy accident, taken after a New Year celebration at my favorite club in Detroit.

    I've also got a morphing version of it that kinda explains the "Fierce Critter" moniker, too.



    Long story. Cougars have always been a totem of sorts for me. I hate how the word has been co-opted to mean an older woman who preys on young guys.

    Even if my husband IS 10 years younger than me...

    What a sweet picture. They sure are getting big.

    Thanks!

    I used some morphing program I got on CDR from a yard sale for 50 cents.

    I don't have access to it right now (2 computer upgrades since creating it) otherwise I'd tell you the name of it.

    It's really super-simple, but gives great results.

    It doesn't create the ani-gif, just the individual steps. I had to import them into Photoshop, create individual gif-steps, then take THOSE into an animation program to create the animation.

    The original version is actually much smoother and larger - I had to cut it down to about 6 steps and shrink it to make the gif small enough to be used on most of the message boards I'm on.

    THanks, Fierce, I had a feeling it must be a separate software program. It's just amazing and totally cool.
