Animated Gif Resize


This small plugin enables WordPress to properly resize animated GIFs. On many installations, WordPress will resize animated GIFs by taking the first frame only. This plugin fixes this problem.

Thanks to Clément Guillemain for GifCreator and GifFrameExtractor.

Note that this plugin can only resize animated GIFs at the moment. I will work on supporting rotations, reflections, etc when I have enough time.

I do not see the change in colours like others are reporting, but I have a different problem. The last frame of the generated GIF is missing a lot of pixels, something like 40%. I tried also regenerating the thumbnails with this plugin:, but it is not working... Maybe it has to do with some server configurations? Does anyone know?
