Animated GIF is a graphic format commonly used in the web because it has a small size, shows animation and allows transparent areas. However, you might sometimes need to convert animated GIF images into some other formats.
ConvexSoft Animated GIF Converter is capable of converting animated GIF images into other video or picture formats. The application has a neat interface that will leave no room for doubts as to its operation. The designers have used tabs to separate the main action of conversion from other features like resizing, splitting or adding effects. This is a smart decision that lessens the cognitive load for new users.
The first step of the basic operation is obviously selecting the GIF file to convert. When you do so, you will be able to preview the image in motion. Then, you will have to select a target format. In this regard, there will be four possible options: AVI, Flash SWF, Flash FLV and image sequence. Each of these output formats will be further customizable by adjusting quality parameters. In the case of the image sequence, you will be able to select one picture format from eleven available formats, including BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, WMF, among others. Before proceeding to convert, you can also choose an output folder.
In addition to the above mentioned basic steps, you can opt to resize the picture by percentage or number of pixels, split it or apply effects like blurring, sharpening or adjusting brightness, contrast and saturation.
In general, ConvexSoft Animated GIF Converter is a well-conceived application that fits the purpose it was created for. It also provides adequate support documentation.
