Can you edit animated GIFs in Paint.net?

Postby Snessy the duck » Mon Feb 05, 2018 10:00 am

So, I was making a SMB1 theme for the forums using the template Joey provided, but I've run into a bit of a problem. You see, the the goomba and coin icons are animated GIFs, and I'm not sure how you can edit those properly (Being able to edit any other frame than the first) in Paint.net, if it's even possible, so I'd really like to know how you can do that and if it's even possible in Paint.net.

It wouldn't hard to look up a "How to" video of how to edit GIFs in Paint.net on YouTube. But if you have no luck, try Photoshop

Never plan to right now, but maybe in the future.

But that costs money. Suggesting a free alternative would probably be more helpful.

It's not possible to do so in Paint.Net unfortunately. But.. I'm a 28% assume that GIMP should be able to do that but still, not sure if it does because I have no idea how to use GIMP.

As a possible alternative, Aseprite is great for animating sprites. It's $15 but it's well worth the cost. Also GraphicsGale -- last version I tried wasn't as good as Aseprite imo but it's still very capable software and it's completely free.
Some people just cannot avoid the ads on MediaFire, even with both common sense and popup blockers. It's always a good idea to provide an alternate download link with an ad-free file host such as Dropbox or Google Drive.

Also play Bug Fables, the devs have confirmed that they got their royalties from Dangen and the game is really freaking good.
