New features suggestion-- Ability to create animated GIFs

Recommended Posts

Actually Paint.Net is a 2D image editor, no vector animation whatsoever, but animated gif's are images in 2D that fall under the category of what Paint.Net can edit, so I think that in the future it's probable that we can make animated gif's, there is already a plugin that does it, although only for icons, go to the plugin section and see the Icon file Type plugin, it's sticki'ed

Paint.NET cannot create animations as it can only edit one still image at a time and the MDI interface is not designed nor meant to be a timeline and plugins do not have access to it - they don't even have access to layers.

Wrong. The animated icon filetype plugin uses each layer as a frame in the animation - there's no reason an animated GIF plugin couldn't do the same. Actually, there is a very good reason it won't. UnFREEz is, as its name implies, free, and less than 20KB to download. No need to reinvent the wheel.
