maybe James can better learn to use QT Gui Editor for this too, with his level, he can certainly make good design.

becouse, you used Photoshop Slice tool or other Slice tool as i can see,to make the Graphics into small pieces .PNG.

so it's easy to create new graphics not sliced but for example 800x600 pixels. but as a slice tool is used, you must also modify your code for the Gui.

and Domenico why animated GIF, is not possible for you to use better animated PNG.

maybe you can use this:
http://animatedpng.com/



here one example of animate PNG:

Hi Domenico.
Thanks a million for that, I will surly check it out.

To be honest, GIF format can only contain 256 colors so it's never going to look nice. It would make the OS look cheap I think, so best to avoid it.

Regards
James

Ouch.... why would anyone even write a tool to do that. It defeats the entire point of APNG format. As I said above, GIF format only contains 256 colors so converting such a horrible looking file to APNG is still going to leave you with 256 colors and a horrible looking file.

PNG can hold up to 24bit so the only way to get the best results from it are to make your graphics from scratch in 24bit resolution.

James becouse PNG is lossless format and GIF not. so when you convert ANIMATED GIF to APNG you make your animation lossless. so, it is better than original animated gif only because is lossless after Conversion.

but indeed it is better to make from scratch APNG.

therfore fist link for a program that can create APGN.

I understand that but the point I'm making is that a GIF is only a 256 colour format, and so converting such a poor quality image to a superior format like PNG still leaves you with a poor quality image.

You do not gain anything in quality at all in the conversion process.

Kind Regards
James

Yes, that would interesting for sure.

Animation can also be very distracting though, so if it was used it would have to be done with great care and taste.

James
