Hi all,

Thanks

there does not seem to be a dedicated graphical program for that, but you should look at gifsicle.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice.

I found Gifsicle
https://www.lcdf.org/gifsicle/

I have received an dis-encouraging advice from another forum saying;
Code: Select all
 ... animated images are frigging annoying. Please don't put this on a web site. A lot of people have disabled animation for precisely this reason. I don't want you to waste your time doing something that many people will never see .....
