    Hi,

    I tried to import a gif image from my pictures folder to make a logo but for some reason logo creator doesn't recognize the gif image in my folder, does anyone know why this is happening?

    I can see all other images that aren't gif but this one isn't recognized by logo creator???? (I've double checked to make sure it's there and it is)

    Hi Jay.
    Yes, GIF is now an old (and not really great looking) format.

    The Logo Creator only imports clean PNG files.
    PNG files allow you to remove the background and the image still looks great.

    if you really need to convert the image, try hopping onto Google and search for " Free GIF to PNG conversion" -- you'll get a ton of sites that will do it all instantly for you.

    Hi Marc,

    Thanks for the prompt reply.

    Sorry I forgot to mention that it's an animated gif and it is important to my logo.

    Is there anyway I can convert GIF to PNG but keep it animated?

    ... very soon, you'll be able to convert the GIF to .SWF (Flash Animation) ... and The Logo Creator WILL accept this format.

    Hang tight!
    Cool things are coming ;)

    One last question.

    Does Ad Creator accept Gif images?

    Laughingbird products currently don't support imported animated files of any kind.
