Goofy GIFs

Add some silly animated frames to your images with this basic program.

It's hard not to prejudge a program called Glitter Frame GIF Maker. We had visions of a program that would likely only be appealing to a 10-year-old girl, and indeed, our prediction wasn't far off. That doesn't make it a bad choice, though--just a program with a limited audience.

The application's interface is plain and fairly easy to navigate. It comes loaded with 10 animated GIF frames, most of which include some combination of flowers, stars, hearts, and bubbles. To apply a frame to an image, simply load the photo you want to use, crop it if necessary, and select the desired frame. Save the new image to your desired location and you're done. Although the program only comes with 10 frames, you can go to the publisher's Web site to get access to six pages of additional options. Unfortunately, there's no Help file, so if you're not computer-savvy you might not know how to actually get them into the program for use. (Answer: save the frame to your computer and then use the Import button in the program to load it.) Glitter Frame GIF Maker is a pretty basic program without a lot of features, but if you just want to add some silly animated frames to your photos, there's no reason not to give it a try.

Glitter Frame GIF Maker installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a Start menu icon and a folder behind upon removal.
