Gif maker

Post by gussoner »

I was surprised that XNView doesn't allow to make gif. So I've searched on the web a free gif maker, and it was very difficult to find a simple software to make that. Could XNView do that ??

One way would be to add Animated GIF to the formats available in Create » Slide Show... » Create Video....
As an alternative, Create » Animation... could launch a wizard:
  1. Color depth
    • Options as in Image » Convert to Binary/Grey/Colours...
  2. Canvas size
    • First/Largest/Smallest image
    • Fixed
  3. Treatment of source images with dimensions that are different from those of the animation's canvas
    • Alignment
      • Options as in Image » Canvas Size... (Image position, Background colour etc.)
    • Scaling
      • Options as in Tools » Options... » View » Auto Image Size
  4. Duration/delay of frames
  5. Number of iterations/loops
