      Ulead GIF Animator 5 is the latest version of the popular tool for creating GIF animations for the Web. Version 5 cuts production time in half with simple drag-and-drop object-based editing, roundtrip auto-updating from external image editors, and tweening features. Banner text is even easier to make with more than 12 built-in movement effects that you can combine with special effects such as gradient and glow. Enhanced optimization and color palette management delivers the smallest file sizes. Output to video, standalone EXE, or Flash (SWF) formats makes it one of the most versatile animation tools.
