Gif sprite sheet creator

World's simplest gif tool

This online utility lets you create a sprite sheet from a GIF animation. All GIF frames can be printed on a horizontal or vertical sprite strip or they can be arranged in a rectangular sprite sheet grid with the specified number of rows and columns. You can also reverse the order of frames, remove unwanted frames, add padding, change the background color, and preview the GIF at a slower or faster speed. Created by GIF experts from team Browserling.

Gif sprite sheet creator tool What is a gif sprite sheet creator?
This is a browser-based GIF to sprite sheet converter. It extracts all frames from the loaded GIF animation and lays them out in a single sprite sheet. There are three types of sprite sheets – vertical, horizontal, and rectangular. The vertical and horizontal sprite sheets are called sprite strips but the rectangular sprite sheet is called a sprite grid. By default, the frames are drawn in a horizontal animation strip as it's the most popular type but you can change the dimensions and the layout of the sprite sheet to any of the three possible types by adjusting the rows and columns options. For example, by specifying the number of rows equal to 2 and the number of columns equal to 5, you will get a sprite rectangle with a width of five frames and a height of two frames. You can also specify only one of the dimension parameters. For example, if you enter only the rows value equal to 2 and leave the columns value empty, the program will fit all frames in 2 equal horizontal lines. If only the columns number is specified, for example, 3, then the program will distribute all frames into three equal vertical columns. When you open a GIF, you can use the GIF animator options to enable or disable its playback, control the frame rate, and reverse the order of sprites in it. GIF's framerate is determined by how long a single frame is displayed before moving to the next frame. By default, it's 250 milliseconds for each frame, which equals 4 frames per second. The playback order of GIF frames can be either forward (from the first frame to the last) or backward (from the last frame to the first). When playing a GIF, frames are counted above the input box and you can easily delete frames that you don't need by entering their numbers in the skip frames option. You can also change the background color of sprites or add a new background if there is none. For example, if the background color of a GIF is red and you want to change it to blue, then you need to enter "red" in the GIF background color field and "blue" in the new sprite background field. If the given GIF is transparent and has no background, then simply enter "transparent" in the GIF background color. Also, with the color tone threshold option, you can control how many similar shades of the given color will be replaced. If you increase the percentage, more shades and tones will be matched and if you decrease the percentage, then only the given color or just a few tones will be replaced. And finally, you can also add extra padding around the sprite sheet. Gifabulous!

Nyan Cat
In this example, we load a GIF of the Nyan Cat and extract all frames from it. The GIF contains 8 sprites and we process them in order (from the first to the last). In the sprite sheet size options, we only specify the rows value and set it equal to 1. This way, we get a single horizontal sprite strip with all eight animation frames one after another. Also, to see the entire GIF, we animate it at the speed of 200 milliseconds per frame (which equals 1000/200 = 5 frames per second). GIF source: Giphy.

Zootopia
In this example, we create a sprite grid from a GIF of smiling Flash Slothmore from our favorite cartoon, Zootopia. Sloths are known to be very slow and it takes Flash 48 GIF frames to express his emotions. We split the GIF into individual frames and to make them fit in a 6-by-7 grid (6 rows and 7 columns), we remove 6 frames from the animation. The removed frames are every 9th frame (frames 1, 9, 18, 27, 45). GIF source: Tenor.

Sonic Gold Ring
In this example, we turn a GIF of a rotating gold ring from Sonic the Hedgehog game into a 4×4 square sprite sheet. We play the GIF in reverse and the animation frames go from the end to the beginning. As the GIF is reversed, so are the sprites in the output sprite sheet. We also add padding of 20 pixels around the rings and change the background color from green (hex code #00A843) to red (hex code #A01515) using a color tone fuzzy match threshold value of 15% (which means match all greenish tones within 15% of the green color).
