"Extremely limited help information"

May 22, 2011  |  By JoeEH

 |  Version: Microsoft GIF Animator 1.0.0.101

Pros

It "may" do some limited work for you, it's hard to tell

Cons

It's best to look for newer product that is still supported

Summary

Skip it; it's outdated and limited.

"A surprise from Microsoft"

March 02, 2011  |  By Hobittual

 |  Version: Microsoft GIF Animator 1.0.0.101

Pros

Works extremely well, small file size, simple to use, a lot better than it first appears.

Cons

Gif's have a grainy quality, but they are not usually serious images so it is not too important.

Summary

Use it, lest you involve yourself with far more complex programs for no greater return.

"This is a GIF animator- As it states."

October 07, 2010  |  By joe6789

 |  Version: Microsoft GIF Animator 1.0.0.101

Pros

Simple tool that shows allows you to add frames with an easy interface and make time delays between each frame easily, and as well easy placement of gif files to create the animation. Free is great for simple jobs it can do for you fast.

Cons

It needs a tutorial. Most GIF animator designers make a huge mistake in thinking they have made software everyone can understand without a simple tutorial to get things started. Bannershop software has a great TUT- which = more business I bet.

Summary

ALL OF YOU GIF ANIMATOR DESIGNERS -understand you are losing alot of business by not making tutorials for your software which once people know how to use, it is easy for them once they have gotten started. Right now you are only popular who are familiar with various gif animators already.

"Primitive app. Not worth the time."

June 23, 2010  |  By azvenigo

 |  Version: Microsoft GIF Animator 1.0.0.101

Pros

May possibly create an animated gif for the low low price of free, but this app isn't worth the time.

Cons

The app was written long ago and is no longer relevant. It's too clumsy to use.

Summary

Don't bother. Look elsewhere.
