From Stone Design:
GIFfun is an easy to use application to make web banners or animated GIFs from individual image frames. Stone Design's application Create(r), part of the Stone Studio(tm), can make these frames, or you can use images of your own (TIFF, PDF, PICT, JPEG, GIF, etc.).
Just drag a folder of images into the box, set the timings, and make your animated GIF, but
Always applies a black background, whether you set transparency option or not. This bug has been noticed by others. If you see a lot of uglified GIFS out there, that may be reason. Almost always you want the animation to set properly in its context.
The con is a dealbreaker for me. What use a black background unless you're using these things for Goth sites and whatnot?
Easy to use. Excellent quality. Good even for use in prime location on top-level home page with larger sized photos.
The instructions are a bit sparse. It is possible to misunderstand and get a poor result. This is a pity since the potential here is sky-high!
GIFfun's potential goes way beyond just creating simple animations and site banners. We proved that it is usable for creating a very high quality slide show with large photos on the top level home page. The nice thing is that GIF animation side-steps problems with Flash or QuickTime, and its light files runs well on all kinds of browsers; old or new.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I confused this tool on the first attempt when I tried to drag in a list of files. When I dragged them in one by one it worked perfectly and spat out my animated GIF directly into a browser window ready to inspect. Job complete within a minute!
No bells, no whistles, no fuss, a one trick pony that just does the job it claims to do with no fuss.
