Thing 22 - LooGix Gifs
I very much enjoyed this "Thing" - looking at many of the Web 2.0 applications available to use in cyberspace. I really enjoyed perusing the many Web 2.0 tools on go2web20.net. There are hundreds to discover. I looked at maybe thirty or so and when more time opens up I plan on exploring the many others. I felt like a kid in a candy store with all the cool choices out there. I chose to do a animated gif program from LooGix.
This is a perfect example of a Web 2.0 program. A user friendly application that you don't have to download onto your computer in order to facilitate. In the past making an animated gif required an expensive program that had animated gif capabilities in it such as Fireworks or buying a program that would solely do animated gifs for a hefty price. Then there would be a learning curve trying to figure out how to make that animated gif with said program. With LooGix it's free and simple. You just upload some pics to the webpage, click a button and viola' - you have your gif. Can't be easier than that. I would definitely recommend this tool to others and am going to use it again.
