Dear SW List, Adam and Stefan!
OK. Let's begin. Create a new folder. Name it whatever you want! Place
your GIFs in that one big folder....You need to know where to find your

is simply for international use...but you can call it

difference until you start distributing your SignBank DE
internationally -  So place all your GIFs in a folder and name it
whatever you wish. See attached GIF...these lessons will
