Depending  on  how *briefly* (e.g. 7.5 seconds would need 3  frames),  you
might  have  to incorporate many layers, in which case file size will  in-
flate enormously. If it's a JPEG that is HotLinked, you will possibly lose
quality  too.  Either way, the GIMP can do all of this and there is  place
for re-use.
