    Default Animated Gif

    Request: making animated gif's, now I use Easy Gif Animator, it is OK, but I prefer to do all photo related things in one program.

    A bitmap viewer is the wrong program to use for creating animations. I guess it wouldn't be too hard to add an option to resize or recolour each frame and save it as a new animated GIF, but its never going to provide the degree of control that a dedicated animation program has.

    Dream on!

    Lightbulb Editing and Saving Animated GIF files

    Hi. My request is to add support for editing, converting and saving animated GIF files. It would be useful to edit directly in IrfanView without having to convert to individual jpeg frames then 'recompile' edited frames back in to gif format etc. I would think many other users would enjoy these features too. Conversion or "Save As" options for animated gif files could include from / to: MP4, MKV, TIFF, WEBP.
    Thanks.

    In my opinion, this is unrealistic for a bitmap editor like IrfanView.

    To create animations one should start with vectors, and one needs all kinds of options like onion-skinning.

    Please read the sticky thread on Feature Requests.

    Default Batching animated GIFs to WEBP doesn't prserve animation

    Hello there

    I was batching animated GIFs to WEBP using Irfanview but it doesn't preserve the animation. Instead what I've got was a still image. Can it be fixed?
    Also it would be nice just to File>Save as animated GIF to other animated format available.

    IrfanView does not support export of animations — neither WebP, GIF, nor APNG.

    Animation programs need a whole raft of features that are not relevant to an image viewer.
