How to Create Animated PNG Images

Animated PNG

Creating animated PNG files, that include a series of successive images of your choice, no longer requires a program specialized in processing images or videos. Instead, it can be done using free edition of reaConverter software!

Animated PNGs or APNGs are similar in function and features with GIFs, but in addition they support image transparency and better quality. Animated PNGs are not supported by all programs and browsers, so in case you intend to open one use reaConverter or Mozilla Firefox. Other viewers or browsers might open the file as a regular PNG.
