    I think GIMP can make animated gifs (the layers are frames)

    I use GIF Movie Gear. It takes a series of frames and turns it into a GIF animation. This was my most recent GIF I made with it by modifying an existing GIF (quality was poor):

    He did not mean it like that, he recently posted that in a political thread at General Nonsense and wanted to show a sample or so. He would not call you names, that is never like him (keeps his head cool even in heated political debates).

    No it is not useful.
    something like Easy GIF Animator, I have 89 frames made in corel draw now I want to make their GIF.
    Damn it I used to use this Easy gif animator only, but when open them it works but while saving it throws an application error.
    Please advise.

    Eh? I wanted to stress a few things in my post:
    1) Editing images in GIF Movie Gear is not pleasant and I wouldn't recommend it. Import frames from another source and only deal with transparency, timing, and optimization in GIF Movie Gear.
    2) An example output (I knew exactly where I posted that picture so I could quickly find it and embed it here).
    3) Emphasizing that the source for the example I provided was poor so the animation is grainy. That's not GIF Movie Gear's fault.
    4) I wanted to provide an alternative to GIMP.

    FYI, I've noticed GIF Movie Gear does a lot better at converting BMP/PNG/JPEG to GIF than Microsoft Paint does; thusly, I use GIF Movie Gear even for non-animated GIFs.


    The text in the GIF isn't meant for anyone in this thread nor this forum. Here's the thread it was created for if you want the context.

    Ohh Wow! Thanks a lot for this GIF Movie Gear. this is really good.



    Well, this thread might just tightly suit here but I would like to know this thing from you techie guys, so opened this thread here.

    I need to know/have a software which I can use for creating video file from my 87 jpeg files one after the another as well as embedding a sound or a mp3 file at particular location.

    This GIF Movie gear does not have that option.

    Please advise.

    You'd have to use some kind of movie editor for that--probably a slide show. I'd use Nero Vision for that but you can try Windows Movie Maker. GIF has no audio so it will have to be saved as a movie of some kind.
