Imageready lets you open quicktime movie files, and save them as animated images. Open your movie file, and resize it in the Image menubar. In the top right pallete, click Optimize, and then under the Options, change the "lossy" slider. The more lossy the image, the smaller the file (but worse the quality). Then, go to File and Save Optimized. It should save as an animated gif. Check to see that the saved file is under 3MB; if not, you'll hve to make it smaller and/or lossier.
Adobe Photoshop CS3
Adobe Premiere can export video to animated gif format. When you have the video you want to be put into a gif ready, just click File>Export>Media. This will then open a box, and you need to change the format to Animated Gif. This will then open Adobe Media Encoder and convert the video into Gif. you may want to open the file with Photoshop or a similar program afterwards to make sure the Gif loops correctly.
GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a free software raster graphics editor. It is primarily employed as an image retouching and editing tool and is freely available in versions tailored for most popular operating systems including Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, and GNU/Linux. Opening several images as layers and saving as a gif with animation gives users the ability to make animated gifs cheaply. Gifs can be optimized and scaled down to avoid site-bloat.
