Animation templates and examples

During the workshop to show the basic frame by frame animation process, we have created an example using one of the State Library's collection resources. We have chosen one of The Queenslander illustrated cover images as it is a good example of how to remove a basic background and manipulate the image to separate the ball from the person and make it bounce across the 16 frames.
