Miss Muller,

Thanks for the share! For anyone using this website to have students create their own sprites, make sure they export as PNG or JPG and then use “sprite.scale” to change the size within the program. This is a great opportunity for students to look through documentation to understand commands that haven’t been formally introduced to them yet!

Cheers!
Brad

Are students able to import animated sprite created in Piskel.app?
Thanks.

@koliner currently you can’t import a GIF or otherwise animated-type sprite into Game Lab.

There is a workaround that some of my students were able to use. You can save the image as an animated GIF, rename it to be a JPG file, upload it, and you should see all the frames in the animation tab. In order to make it work, you have to make a small change to a frame, just adding a dot or something, then once you draw the sprite inside the draw loop, it will animate.
