    Default How do I make animated gifs?

    I had a PhotoImpact version that let me make animated gifs. It does not work with Vista.

    I now have PhotoImpact X3, which does not have an animated gif maker. Could anyone tell me what I need?

    FastStone Image Viewer can export animations.

    If you want alpha transparency and animation there is also APNG

    Easy to make with JAPNG (requires JAVA).

    APNG images are viewable in Opera and Firefox.

    Example produced in JAPNG.

    Here's another example that I just made. It was very easy to replace the existing PNG with an APNG — the filename and extension were the same. Internet Explorer will show only the first frame, other browsers will show the animation.

    I cannot speak for Irfan, but I guess he would say that there are plenty of GIF animation programs available, so there is no reason to add this to an image viewer.
