giftrans - transform gif from gif87 to gif89, making one color transparent


giftrans [options] [-o filename] filename


giftrans converts any GIF file into a GIF89a. Allows for setting the transparent or
background color, changing colors, adding or removing comments. Also code to analyze GIF


-h Print short help on stdout.

-t Specify the transparent color

-T Index of the transparent color is the background color index

-B Specify the transparent color's new value

-b Specify the background color

-g Change a color in the global color table

-c Add a comment

-C Remove old comment

-l Only list the color table

-L Verbose output of GIFs contents

-V Verbose output while converting

-o Redirect stdout to a file

-e Redirect stderr to a file

Colors may be specified as index, as rgb.txt entry or in the #rrggbb form. Of course,
beware that shells will often consider the # character to start a comment and so you may
have to escape it!


To convert the white background of a gif file to transparent, use

giftrans -t #ffffff file.gif > transparentfile.gif
