I always wanted to make a diagram of a gun and animate it. Like a piston valve working.

What program is good for doing this and is free or at least cheap?
And once I've created one, how do I get it uploaded?

Those were done in Zoner 5 or something like that. You use MS Paint to edit the frames.

Why did the piston one come out so fast?? It was perfect when I made it... photbucket sped it up or something.

Making animations using POV-ray is pretty simple - either automated or manual - although you'll need a seperate software package to consolidate them into a animation.
