Animated progress GIF image is a very simple yet powerful way to provide feedback to running operation. It doesn’t require any programming and all modern web browsers and Java support it. However for those who want to generate a quick and nice looking progress GIF may be up to some challenges. For all its popularity, it is still hard to find ready-made progress GIF that fits perfectly in term of size, colour and appearance. Such tasks definitely become convenient when there are dedicated sites focus on creating and processing GIF image, precluding the need to download and install any application. It is unlikely that a web service is able to meets all the need of creating GIF. Therefore I recommend two sites that provide complementary service that might just help to generate your perfect Progress GIF. Essentially it requires the user to generate the Progress GIF in one site and then modifying the size on the the other.
1) Create Animated Progress GIF
This service allows one to choose from comprehensive list of different progress appearance, assign colour and transparency. Once generated, one can then preview and download the GIF.
2) Create Animated Progress GIF
If the GIF doesn’t meet the need, it can be enlarged, crop and even change colour through using the following GIF manipulation service. Make sure that the Scaling Factor dropdown is set to Manual Size before setting its width and height. Do take note that enlarging a GIF image will degrade its look since GIF is a bitmap not a vector format.
