What's the default frame rate of a animated gif? I'm using Imageready and set each frame to a delay of 'no delay' (0 secs). When exporting as animated gif, what is the default speed (number of frames per second) browsers animate the gif? Can't find any documentation about it.
There isn't a default frame rate for gifs as they are just mini slide shows and you control how long the frame is delayed.
Depending on how complicated the image is a file the faster or slower it will play regardless of the delay. I once made an awesome .gif with flash like effects that turned out to be 4mbs in size. It played awesome locally, but online in different browsers, it actually jumped and skipped frames, and sometimes is played so slow that it was almost was unwatchable.
The 'Wizard" helps you insert your images and then you can set whatever frame rate - for each frame - that you want.
This gives you the ability to slow down and/or speed up whatever part(s) of your animated GIF that you like.
Once you get it the way that you want, you save it as a GIF file (in your Root Directory), insert it into the web page of your choice, upload the GIF (that is in your Root Directory), the web page, and you're good to go.
I am retired, so now, I no longer work for a living - Now, living works for me
How do you like Ulead GIF animator? I had the free trial on one of my computers but I just couldn't get into it. I really dont like Image Ready at all, but it so simple and close to Photoshop that I use that.
