AnimatedGifs plugin

Adds support for resizing animated gifs. Once added, animated gifs will be resized while maintaining all animated frames. By default, .NET only saves the first frame of the GIF image.

Best used with disk caching, as large animations can take a while to process (sometimes even over a second).


Settings: width = 300

Where is the plugins section?

The <plugins> section is located in Web.config, and is nested inside the <resizer> element, which is nested inside <configuration>. For examples, see this sample Web.config file.

Where can I find the dll?

We prefer that you install via NuGet, but you can also find the plugin DLL files in the /dlls/release folder of your download.
