GIF Construction Set Professional

Legendary animation

For Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows 11.

GIF Construction Set Professional represents the state of the art in GIF animation software. It will assemble your original animations effortlessly through its Animation Wizard; squeeze them down to as close to nothing as possible with its Supercompressor; create eyecatching banners and animated transitions; manage your GIF files; add transparency to existing graphics and a lot more.

The extensive documentation and tutorials included with GIF Construction Set Professional will get you up to speed in less time than it takes most elected officials to redefine the truth.

GIF Construction Set Professional offers access to the extensive library of Alchemy Mindworks animation plugins as well. If you need unspeakably cool graphic elements for your web pages and your artistic skills end at advanced paperclip sculpture, these optional accessories will turn you into a professional designer with little more than a few mouse clicks.

This software is available for electronic delivery and on DVD-ROM. We invite you to download an evaluation copy and try it out.

  • Build instant animations with Animation Wizard.
  • Reduce the size of your GIF files with Supercompressor.
