I remembered how to do it. Here is the procedure for the original request:

Using ImageReady:

1. First put the graphics you wish to use in a new folder (with no other
graphics files).
2. In IR, select File -> Import -> Folder as Frames...
3. Select your folder.
You should now have thumbnails of all of your graphics pictured sequentially
in a frame (probably in the bottom left of your screen).
4. Click on the second picture in the sequence.
5. Click on the right pointing arrow in a circle button under the frame's
"X" to close button.
6. From that menu, select Tween...
7. You'll probably want to keep all of the defaults except for the number of
frames you want the transition to take (the more frames the smoother).
8. Click OK.
9. If you had a third picture when you started, find that one and repeat.
10. If you want to transition back to the first picture in a continuous
a. Click on the first frame.
b. Click on the button that has a picture of a page with the corner
curled up to copy the picture.
c. Drag the copy to the end.
d. Repeat the Tween steps on this picture.
e. Delete the copy.
11. Tweak your transition time settings with the pull-down menus below the
thumbnails. It looks like the default is 0 sec., which means that the
picture will cycle as fast as it possibly can. You can highlight all the
frames at once (Shift+Click works, but CTRL+A does not) and set them at the
same time.
12. You can also tweak the looping settings by using the Forever pull-down
menu at in the bottom left of the frame.
