Adobe Photoshop can do it although it doesnt make it easy. or you can draw each frame in paint and use a gif creator to put all the images togetherr into a gif file, personally i would use adobe photoshop but like i said its hard to do in that program.

in addition, if I wanted to convert something from paint (.bmp) to one of the formats that would work (this would be soemthing not moving) what program or way can I do this?

I am willing to try, if you have done it, can you give me details how; I do have access to photoshop, but did not know that you could do it in it. However, I do not currently own it and wondered if you could do this using Photoshop Elements or Premiere? They are a whole heck of a lot cheaper!
