Gif background remover

World's simplest gif tool

This online utility lets you remove the background from GIF animations. Once you specify the background color in the options, it finds all pixels in all frames that match this color and removes them. You can also delete a multi-tone background by setting the color tone match percentage in the option. You can play the animation frame by frame or stop it at a particular frame.

Gif background remover tool What is a gif background remover?
This is a browser-based program that deletes the background color from all GIF frames. If your GIF is multi-frame (it's animated), then it loops over all frames and deletes the background from every frame. If your GIF has a single frame (it's static), then it deletes the background from just this one frame. When the background is deleted, you can download the transparent GIF right away. The area that will be removed from the GIF is selected by matching the specified color in pixels of the frames. For example, if you enter the color "yellow", the program will remove the yellow background from the animation. Similarly, if you enter a mathematical color value "#0000ff", the program will remove all blue pixels. If the background of your animation has various shades of the same color, you can remove them as well via the shade matching option. In this option, you can specify the percentage from 0% to 100%. For example, the percentage 0% means match just one color and 20% means match 20% of similar color tonality. To see exactly which pixels will be removed and which will remain, you can use the "Alpha Channel Preview" option. This option works only in the browser and illuminates the removal areas using black and white pixels. The "Animation Preview" option lets you see the input GIF with the original background and the output GIF with the removed background. In the options, you can also find a section about GIF frame delays, frame sizes, and frame counts. If you want to closely examine any one of the GIF frames, you can disable the animation and specify the frame number you're interested in. Gifabulous!

Flowers without Background
In this example, we remove the dark blue sky background from an animation of a blooming cluster of flowers. We enter the removal color using the hexadecimal code "#044C7B". We also match 30% of the dark blue tones and they also get removed from the background. (Source: Pexels.)

Remove Pink Background
In this example, we create a transparent video clip of moving cupcakes. We remove the pink background by matching the color "#FC559C" in all GIF frames. We also remove an additional 20 percent of pink tint. In the output, we get a transparent animation that can be superimposed over other images. (Source: Pexels.)

Delete Pixels Around a Sprite
In this example, we're cleaning up a sprite of the legendary Mortal Kombat fighter Sub-Zero. We found a sprite with a medium-aquamarine background color but to use it for our purposes, we need to remove this solid color background from the sprite. We enter color "mediumaquamarine" as the background color and instantly get a cleaned-up sprite with no background and just Sub-Zero. (Source: Midway Games.)
