What's new in this version:
New transition effects, video-to-GIF conversion, updated clipart, a lot of fixes and performance imporvements
A lot more features than some other ani-gif makers.
Easy to use.
Transition effect can only be applied once (between two images), so if you loop the animation, the return to the start is not transitioned. Depending on what you are doing, that can be brutal.
Plus, after you create a transition, you can no longer preview the transition if you want to change it, because it doesn't remember the second image (so you just see a transition between the first two frames, which is typically the same image).
This isn't quite there. I'll continue my search for something better.
Very easy to use and can make a single picture look good...all functions work...
The v5.61 has less options than this v6.1
A good program for all the conversions it can do, it does it good...***PhotoScape is a totally free program that you can convert different formats to like this does to gif...
