The issue was in selecting auto awesome but not seeing the images i wanted to create a motion animation of from the available pictures. Since i couldn't remember how i got the post it notes in there (to animate), i started sharing pictures to various apps (mainly picasa)to see if that in turn made the images available for selection when attempting to make an auto awesome gif file. Scrapbook seemed to work.
Once i create the animation, i can Shar it to lj using eljay app. I haven't tried SCRAPPLE yet, but i will. Theimage is then uploaded to a blog entry using the img tag.
Scrapbook to picasa If i share scrapbook pix to picasa, the Google picture file manager allows me to make an auto awesome motion animation with them
