Site News: New animated slideshow added

A new animated slideshow has been added to the front page of the site. Animated GIF images were used in the slideshow to accomplish this effect. The animated GIF files are the first five (5) images, and then the rest are collages created with Picasa. Camtasia was used to composite all the elements and generate the final animated GIFs. A bug in Camtasia introduced a 1 pixel black line at the top of the final images. This was trimmed with ImageMagick but led to presentation inconsistencies. The final solution was to add a 1 pixel border around all of the animated GIFs.
