    The package imagemagick can do this:
    Code:
    convert -delay 100 -loop 0 image*.jpg animation.gif
    I believe my delay value will wait 1 second before moving to the next frame.

    Anyone know how to make this more compressed? (currently the result is simular to the included files)

    Mogrify the files first:

    Code:
    $ mogrify -resample 72x72 -resize 256x256 *.JPG
    keep in mind that this will overwrite the original files so it would be wise to do that with a copy
