Also you can turn a video clip into an animated gif or split an animated gif!

  11. I’ve been fascinated by animated gifs for a long time, and kept telling myself I’d get aroung to figuring out how to make my own. This post just saved me a LOT of trouble. Thanks!

  12. Hello,

    Nice post this, I was searching for a way to combine gif files online, and then I came to you’re post. Only, the one that’s the best for that job, doesn’t exist anymore, Gifmashup.

    But I’m gonna try other sites. Thanks!

    • You are very welcome!
      Thanks for your feedback and a very happy new year to you too!!!πŸ˜€

      If there’s any other thing your heart desires, just ask me. I would love to help if I have the info!

  13. I think your page is great but have a question I hope you have an answer for. I was looking a similar online thing like Screedbot but something that has a transparent background and ‘prints’ or types the whole ‘page’ as a animated gif to save…Screedbot is good except for the non transparent background and the fact that if you use multiple lines the top part disappears as it goes down the ‘page’…so maybe you have an answer to my request. Thanks Sue

  14. hi!,I really like your writing so much! share we keep in touch more about your post on AOL?
    I require a specialist in this area to unravel my problem.
    Maybe that’s you! Having a look ahead to see you.

  15. One way to do that is to determine your work values.
    When put forth find the merchandise later,
    you can’t. However, the change happens, you move careers and all of a sudden you find yourself alone.

  16. Why is not on this list? it is much better and simpler to use, with MUCH better results than these others

  17. Just want to say your article is as astonishing.
    The clearness in your post is simply spectacular and
    i can assume you are an expert on this subject. Well with your permission let me to grab your
    feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks a million
    and please keep up the gratifying work.

  18. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
