This tutorial explains how to convert animated png to animated gif.
apng2gif is a free software that helps to convert animated png into animated gif. This utility is very useful as many web browsers and image viewers don’t support animated png files. Only still png image is visible for an animated png and you won’t be able to view what actually that animated png file contains. In such cases, you can use this software to convert your animated png image to animated gif.
Animated Gif can be viewed very easily with all modern browsers and with animated gif viewers.
In above screen recording, you can see an animated png image converted into an animated gif using this freeware.
Note: Animated png file comes with same *.png extension, so you won’t be able to distinguish between still and animated png file, until you have any apng viewer software or installed apng viewer extension in your web browser. Therefore, this software gives a better opportunity to find out how your animated png looks by converting that apng file to animated gif.
