How To Remove Loops From Animated GIFs


Animated GIFs can be funny as well as informative. There are several free animated GIF makers online like MakeaGIF and GIFMaker.

All these animated gifs have loops that make it possible to repeat the whole image sequence over and over. This loop can be removed so that only the image gif can be extracted if needed.

A free tool to do this is in Windows is Beneton Movie GIF. Download and install it from here.

Once installed and launched, the main interface is fairly simple to navigate.

To remove the loop from animated GIFs, choose “Open” and select the source path where animated GIF file is present.
