Gif background adder
World's simplest gif tool
This online utility lets you add a background to a GIF animation. You can create a background from a single color specified in the options or draw a background from a gradient of two or more colors. It supports linear and radial background gradients and you can also specify the direction of the gradient colors (and set a radius for the radial gradient). To make sure all frames look good, you can stop the GIF and view individual opaque frames that have the new background added. Created by GIF experts from team Browserling.

Gif background adder tool What is a gif background adder?
This is a browser-based program that adds a background to GIFs with animated or static frames. As soon as you load a GIF, it automatically finds all transparent pixels in all the frames and makes them opaque. At the moment, you can use a solid color or a color gradient as a background but very soon, you'll also be able to add a background image. To create a solid background, switch to the "Single Color" mode and choose a color using the color palette or enter its name. To create a gradient background, activate the "Color Gradient" mode and enter two, three, or four colors. You can create either a linear gradient or a radial gradient. For the linear gradient, you can specify the direction of color change. The colors can blend horizontally (left to right, or right to left) or vertically (top to bottom, or bottom to top). For the radial gradient, you can specify the radius of the gradient and its starting position. This position can be the very center of the GIF or any of its four corners. The before and after GIFs can be simultaneously viewed and compared in two side-by-side players. If the input GIF is animated, you can pause the GIF video clip at any frame and resume the animation again as needed. Other information about the GIF file can be found in the options. The GIF with the filled background can be downloaded from the second player. Gifabulous!

Add a Solid Background
In this example, we add a solid background to a GIF animation of a hand holding an orange. To do this, we select the "Use a Single Color" option and enter the color "pink" in the background color field. (Source: Pexels.)
Color for a solid background.

Add a Linear Gradient Background
In this example, we create a bright tropical color gradient for the background of a pineapple animation. We draw a linear gradient using three colors: gold, tomato, crimson. The gradient flows from the top to the bottom and smoothly fills the GIF. (Source: Pexels.)
Required optionsSelect gradient direction.
Start both GIF players.
Add a Radial Gradient Background
In this example, we add a background to a GIF of the Golden Dragon logo from the game Mortal Kombat. We use a radial gradient that changes the colors from "turquoise" to "dodgerblue", to "navy", and then to "black". The radial gradient has a radius of 300 pixels and is located in the center of the frames. (Source: Midway Games.)
Required optionsSelect gradient position.
Set gradient radius.
