Make an Animated .GIF with Paint.NET


Recommended Posts

I wouldn't go as far as saying it's too big. However, It's definitely one of the wider sigs we have here on the forum. Here is an example of a sig that is too wide.

EDIT: Rick or Forum Mod, Can you please remove KamourianKing's sig? Thank you.


- DO NOT contact me asking for the .pdn of my avatar or the PDN logo. Thank you. Have a nice day.

To do that all i did was make the sig, then make 3 simple backgrounds for it. After that I had to make Gif Images of the Sig with all 3 backgrounds, then i made Gif images of each background at 1/3 and 2/3 opacity, and then linked all of those GIF images together with Unfreez.

It took a while, and was boring :roll: (not the creation, but the animation) But it was worth it :o

While this topic is quite useful for creating gifs, it demonstrates that PDN currently can't be used for creating animated gifs. The gif animating programs are used instead. I, as a programmer, wonder however if the plug-ins API does allow development of a plugin, implementing this functionality. This would make PDN one step better :) .

And salutations to all of you who posted your creations here.

Edit: Okay, I was wrong, there already is a plugin under development - as far as I could see. I hope it finishes in success.

I used Microsoft GIF Animator to isolate the individual frames with screen shots. Then I used PDN to cut the screen shot down to the right size. Then I used Printstar Morpher to morph the images together and output the new frames. Then I went back into Microsoft GIF Animator to create the animation.
