Aesop GIF Creator is a program designed to help you create GIF animations with the help of some easy-to-use tools.
The app is wrapped in a plain and intuitive interface where you can get started by importing images for the first frame.
So, you can add as many frames as you want, along with a gradient and borders (set the bevel color, highlight, shadow, inner and outer style).
Additionally, you can accurately position the images on the frame by inputting the left, top and angle values, as well as change their size and adjust the transparency level.
Furthermore, you can insert a rectangle, rounded rectangle, ellipse, polygon and text, as well as send objects to the back or bring them to the front. Frames can be copied, removed or reversed; switching through them is possible from the 'View' menu' or from the 'Frames Inspector' drop-down menu.
Before exporting the GIF animation, you might be interested in adjusting its delay, the number of colors per frame (from 8 to 256 colors), looping mode and transparency. Alternatively, you may export the project to a Bitmap or a set of BMP files.
Aesop GIF Creator has a good response time, includes user documentation and requires a moderate amount of CPU and system memory. It didn't freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs during our evaluation. However, the app lacks some key features.
For example, you cannot use keyboard shortcuts or preview the animation before creating it. Plus, there is no 'Options' screen available where you can configure program settings. But we must keep in mind the fact that Aesop GIF Creator has not been updated for a long time.
