Pros & Cons:

Drag and drop multiple GIF files, looping and repeat, set delay duration to each frame, re-order frames, undraw method, transparency and more.
Rather small user interface, Microsoft discontinued its development.

Our Review:

Microsoft GIF Animator is another good gif maker even though its development has been discontinued by Microsoft.

From your file folder you can drag and drop multiple GIF files to the frame panel, then select looping and repeat, and set delay duration to each frame before saving to a new animated GIF file.

You can also easily re-order frames by pressing the up/down buttons. If you need more advanced features, settings are available for animation width and height, border, undraw method, transparency and so on.

That said, I find the user interface of the program rather small and its window cannot be maximized. It can be frustrating for users who are working on a GIF file consisting of more frames.

NB: This program is no longer available from the Microsoft Download Center but is available at third party download sites.
