I'm looking for a simple to use GIF maker/editor preferably FREE
Do you mean animated gifs? In theory the Gimp should do this, but I can't get it to work properly. I've got version 2.0.4, maybe the bug is fixed in the latest release. The only other free option I know of is UnFREEz; you'd have to use another graphics editor to make the individual frames, save each one as a gif file and then import them all into UnFREEz to make the animation Not elegant, but it does the job.
Thanks for that Meltdown, will have a look...
You're probably aware of most of them, so the only other one I know offhand that's been around for awhile is XnView.
Don't worry either, I've got a feeling this thread's going to explode!
Best of Luck Mr.Spear.....
Ahhh Mr Force, as helpful as ever, thank you.
Are you looking to edit beyond the capabilities of The Gimp cause I know you've been playing with it OR, you're trying to locate a tool that operates differently function-wise? Irfanview, PhotoFiltre, or the one that Eldar likes won't cover your needs?
You do know about GIFWorks!?
What about Blender ? It's also free.
Haven't tried it though, so I don't know what you can achieve with it, but
it does get excellent ratings.
Edit: correction, distracted by my kids.
i came across this site yesterday and it has the the MS GIF Animator.
also at the site it has old time radio with things like the war of the worlds, old war time radio broadcasts and Schmeling Vs. Lewis.
Oh Yeah, forgot to mention Blender, and..........I knew these guy's would show up!
I found Microsoft GIF Animator as well yesterday, that puts images together nicely, very simple to use. So now I just need to play with the images, might try going back to The Gimp, I'm looking at doing my Avatar with a bit of sparkle added to it.
Cheers to you all
PS. Hi GF, yes found Gifworks yesterday as well, not quite what I was looking for, had a play and decided to keep looking, am almost there, getting a nice toolbox together that is very simple to use and has great results Cheers
here are two more...
EDIT i just found ULead Gif Animator v2.0., and Ulead Gif Animator Lite. i dont really know them, but ive downloaded afew things from the site with no problems. they're over half-way down the page, near the red writting.
Thanks Iceni60, I'll have a look.
here are some more. RahmanImager i think can edit GIFs, im not too arty so maybe check first
i found this next site below, but i dont know anything about it. all the other links i have given i trust. usually if i find a site that i dont know and theres something i want to download from it, i'll put the name of it into a search engine along with the word freeware or shareware and see if the program turns up on a site i know and trust.
