SWF stands for “small web format” or “Shockwave Flash” and represents an animated image extension currently part of the Adobe group of proprietary formats. Together with GIF and PNG, SWF represents one of the most widely used extensions for posting online short animations or applets than can include interactive features. Some of the main advantages of using SWF include fast loading time, supporting scalable graphics and transparencies.
GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is one of the most popular formats for storing short animations, offering a succession of several images of your choice. You can often see them used in online ad banners or showing short “moving image” sequences on various social networks.
While some people think creating animated GIFs requires sophisticated software specialized in processing videos, the truth is with reaConverter’s free edition you can make your own customized animation in a matter of seconds.
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!
