Other Graphics Programs for Animated Web Graphics
Some graphics programs include Web animation graphics capabilities (animated GIF), such as Adobe Photoshop (with ImageReady) and Adobe Fireworks. Note that beginning with CS3, you'll need Adobe Photoshop Extended to have animation graphics capabilities since ImageReady is no longer a separate program included with Photoshop. Older versions of Paint Shop Pro include Animation Shop; however, Corel Animation Shop is now sold as a separate program. Below are some stand-alone programs for creating animated Web graphics.
- Corel Animation Shop
Previously included with Paint Shop Pro, now Animation Shop is sold separately. It still integrates well with Paint Shop Pro, though. [Program by Corel (formerly created by Jasc with Paint Shop Pro).]
- GIF Construction Set
Create, optimize, and save animated graphic files. Can save files in a variety of outputs, such as GIF, SWF (Flash), MNG, AVI, MOV. Reasonably priced. [Program by Alchemy Mindworks.]
- Ulead® GIF Animator™
Popular program to create and optimize images for Web use in a variety of formats, including GIF, JPG, PNG, True Color AVI, QuickTime, MPEG, and for use with Flash, Photoshop, and others. [Program by Ulead.]
