Awesome tools to create GIF images

GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is becoming popular these days on social media.Everyone is using them because of their compact size and versatility and their ability to show animation.But have you ever wondered how they are created.Let me explain the concept behind this. GIF images are bitmap image format that was developed by US-based software writer Steve Wilhite while working at the internet service provider CompuServe in 1987.It is formed by merging many images in different time frames such that the whole image appears to be actually moving.
