When I learned to animate banners I used GIMP. It's essentially a free photoshop. Each frame is a different layer, and you click filter-animation-playback to show the gif preview. When you save it you can export as .gif.

 

Edit: Totally forgot, if you want to animate on a transparent background you want to use this name system and delete the background layer: Frame # (XXXms) (replace) where XXX is the delay on the frame which affects speed of the animation (optional, when exporting you can select "as animation" which will allow you to change the speed of all layers where this is unspecified) and replace will tell the animation to get hide the previous frame when it transitions. Otherwise you will see each previous frame underneath the current frame. This isn't an issue if you have a background in each frame though.

I'm not at my computer to elaborate, but there's a step-by-step guide on the official krita documentation on how to animate with it: https://docs.krita.org/en/user_manual/animation.html

 

Once I get to my computer later I can edit a more "straight to the point" guide into this post.
