Hello, when I create a new animated gif and I go to save my creation, in the save as navigation window it shows only CAR-NeoBook Save As File Type in the drop down list box, any idea's why I don't have *.gif file type available ?

This happens when I convert my animated gif to 24bit or 32bit colors.

Cheers from MagicBytes.

I think GIF is 256 color by spec only.
So it makes sense to not offer the extension.

Hans-Peter is correct. The GIF file format does not support 24 or 32-bit color. You will need to convert to 256 colors before saving as a GIF.
