The timeline allows you to see what photos you have in your animation and what order they are in. Deleting your frames would allow you to start again and make a new animation. Reversing the frame order allows you to play the animation backwards. The screenshot below shows these features.
The preview window allows you to see what your current animation looks like. The speed option allows you to choose how fast or slow your animation plays. The save option allows you to save your animation. The screenshot below shows these features.
The tab system is where you will be able to decide if you want to use a webcam to take photos with a webcam or use ones that you have on your computer. Look at the screenshot below of this feature.
The meter at the bottom of the screen tells you how big the file size of your current animation will be. It does not give a file size in numbers it simply tells you if it will be small, medium or big. Look at the screenshot of this below.
There is also an option to add effects to your animation. As shown in the screenshot of the available effects below.
Choosing to add a new frame is how you will be able to put another photo into your animation, but there is a limit of twenty. The option to choose if your photo is in portrait or landscape is handy because you can use both styles of photos with this GIF animator. The screenshot of this feature is shown below.
The last feature allows you to draw on a photo, the screenshot of this is posted below.
