Hi, Im not sure if this the right forum to look for the answer to this question, but i checked all the forum types, and i clearly should say that this forum was the one i found more suitable to post this doubt.

Whenether im surfing in the internet, in some pages i get to notice Animations, i check the properties and i get a suprise, they're not flash animations, they are normal images, this type: GIF. I copied one and tried to edit it but its impossible, it turns into a normal GIF image without no animation.

So i would like to know how to make a GIF image by my own and set myself the sequences and the frames...

Is there a special Easy-To-Use software destinated to these purposes?

To view an animated GIF

When viewing a GIF, not all graphic viewers will show the animation - IF there is animation there. For a GIF to be animated there are multiple images in that one file.

IrfanView does allow you to see the animation of a GIF, and it will also separate the multiple contained images to some place of your choosing. IrfanView does not give you the ability to edit a GIF as it exists, but you can use IrfanView to separate the individual images, and then you can use any of your other graphic tools to edit those frames.

Then, you will need some other graphic tool to re-combine the individual images back into a single animated GIF, if that is what you want to do.

Apple's "preview" program in OS X

will also play and/or show frame by frame gif animations.

BTW... Adobe Photoshop will allow you to create gif animations in its companion program Adobe ImageReady. I have both version 7.0 and CS and both programs offer this ability.

good luck Happy
