Photo Gallery GIFs

The Photographers’ Gallery, newly extended at a cost of over £9m, reopens tomorrow with two exhibitions (CLICK) and The Wall. The latter is a unique space for screen media and digital images. Its inaugural display celebrates the animated GIF, created in 1987, which brought the illusion of movement to previously static images. Back in those days I was having fun creating palette-cycling images on my Atari ST using Degas Elite. Sadly, the graphic shown here isn't a GIF, but a static JPG. CLICK for an animated GIF library with over 5000 free images. Occasionally I use Microsoft GIF Animator, a freebie still kicking around today. Google for it and have fun.
