midora Posted December 15, 2021 Author Share Posted December 15, 2021 There is an additional info which people should know. If the first frame of a gif is surrounded by a transparent area and you are loading it into paint.net without changing the name to .agif then you will get the first frame without the transparent area (means the image dimensions are smaller). The reason seems to be an issue in the WIC (Windows Imaging Component) which is used from paint.net and the WindowsExplorer. WIC returns the dimensions of the first frame and not the logical screen size. Difficult to say if this is a bug or a feature. The Windows Explorer thumbnail also removes the transparent area and shows the smaller dimensions in the tooltip. I never reported it to Rick. A typical example is the deen gif which I posted earlier. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
