Editors' review

Gif To Swf Converter is an easy-to-use program that allows users to convert GIF images into Flash files. The program works, mostly, but it doesn't have a lot of features, and it isn't entirely clear about the ones it does have.

Gif To Swf Converter's interface is fairly plain, with buttons for selecting one or more images or directories of images for conversion. We like the program's preview pane, which displays each animated GIF before conversion, if you want it to. Gif To Swf Converter is quite simple to use: You specify whether you want to resize the image or images, change the frame rate if needed, and click then "Convert." The program quickly converts the images to SWF files and stores them in your chosen destination folder. This seems to be the extent of Gif To Swf Converter's bag of tricks; although the software's built-in Help file mentions that it's possible to capture a frame from an animated GIF and save it in another format, neither the interface nor the Help make it clear how to do this. We tried to figure it out on our own, but unfortunately we crashed the program in the process.

Gif To Swf Converter has a seven-day trial period. It comes as a zip file but installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program with reservations; we like it in theory, but it seems a little unstable, and it isn't entirely clear how all of its features should be used.

    "Did not work, detected virus, and installed extra junk"

    April 01, 2013   |   By Ronski400

    Version: Gif To Swf Converter 3.2

    Pros

    Would have had to have worked to have a pro

    Cons

    The free trial claims to convert gif to swf with a watermark, but it does not. I would have considered the purchase if it had worked. Not only did it not function as advertised, but upon installation antivirus thought it was a virus and when I opened Chrome it had changed my search settings, homepage, and given me a an awful flashy toolbar.

    Summary

    Useless software.
