iStonsoft GIF Maker
iStonsoft GIF Maker is a lightweight application designed to help you create GIF animations from still pictures. The software is simple to use and supports inserting as many images as you wish, with customizable size and frame delay.
Select still pictures and create a dynamic sequence
The images you upload to the software represent the frames that are to be played in the current order. Thus, you need to upload the photos in the order you wish to render them, since the software does not allow picture rearrangement in the list. The software offers you a preview of the output file, in the lower section of its interface.
While the preview is rendered at the selected speed, the size does not correspond to the output. You may manually enter the height and width of the final GIF, but the software does not apply the size readjustment in the preview. In other words, the preview can serve for verifying the frame delay.
Set speed and repetition
You may manually set the number of milliseconds of delay for the frame rendering, then play the preview and verify the speed of the frame sequence. If, for instance, your images contain text, you may wish to set a higher delay, in order to offer the users time to read the message.
Additionally, you may decide whether your wish to enable permanent repetition to the output GIF, or set it to play a limited number of times when you open it. If you select the latter, you must also mention how many times you wish the GIF to play upon each opening. An informational bar, at the bottom of the program interface displays the name of the output file, as well as the currently selected frame.
Save and share your file
iStonsoft GIF Maker enables you to save the project as editable content, in XML format, or save the output file as animated GIF. It automatically applies strong compression, in order to obtain a small sized file, suitable for embedding on websites, as personal icon image, in instant messengers or emails.
