Create APNGs by visiting APNGs.com from your computer. Mobile Safari and Firefox can view APNGs.


FPS Frames Per Second. Higher values make smoother animations. Lower values save space. Improvements from values above 60 may not be noticeable. GIFs will ignore this since they cannot reliably play more than 10 FPS.
Seconds The exact Seconds used may be slightly different to ensure smooth animation.
Bounds The image size. Width x Height in pixels.

APNGs Style Movie style increases compression by using transparent pixels to recycle pervious frames, but has set alpha transparency fixed on the first frame.
Sprite style is good for sprite type images with lots of transparency and changes on every frame.
Format You can use this to generate GIFs for legacy support. Some options like FPS may be ignored by GIFs.

About APNGs

Welcome to APNGs.com, the go-to portal for APNGs(Animated PNGs).
APNGs are animated images, similar to Animated GIFs. Unlike GIFs, however, APNGs support a full spectrum of 16 million colors and unlimited framerate. GIFs are limited to 256 colors and 10 frames per second. After a long journey of ups and downs, APNGs are gaining momentum and interest and could be poised to be the successor to GIFs.

Convert your Flash® animations to APNGs to play on iPhone® and iPad® devices.

Flash developers/animators can now use APNGs to play their animations on iPhones and iPads natively in full true color with a high quality framerate. Just add your .SWF files as images in the WebApp and generate some APNGs with the SWF-to-APNG functionality! Being a multi-frame bitmap format, these animations will, of course, lose the ability to run any code and vector scalability. Some animations may experience some warping since the animation is being rasterized to fixed frames.

Why convert from Flash to make APNGs? Flash has been an industry leading animation technology for decades with many years of existing content of amazing quality built. Leveraging the deep feature set will also allow developers to build new breathtaking animations. The APNG format allows animations to play on mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad and devices running other supported browsers such as Firefox.

SWF technical notes

Very old AS2-based files(Flash 8 and below) will need to be converted to a non-ancient version before they will work here. This is because the AS3 system needs to be able to manipulate their timelines. If this is the case, load your animations into Flash Professional and re-save them in the latest format.

This software uses . If your animation is based on code rather than a pure timeline animation, it may produce unpredictable results.

Let us welcome the latest browser/rendering engine to support APNGs!
Good to have you with use Apple Safari/WebKit!
Gaining Safari is a big development for APNGs.
Apple users have a tendency to be in tight-knit groups and use Apple-everything without caring what other systems are doing. Having access to this type of community is good for the format because they may be inclined to simply use APNGs, have them work on their Mac, iPhone, and iPad, and not care if some other browser out there doesn't support it. Most of their friends probably use all Apple stuff too, so they may not be bothered by the non-support of other technologies. Apple is also a very influential company, obviously and having support on their devices can boost morale and perception of the format.

Browser Support

FirefoxHas the longest history of supporting APNGs. In fact, this animated extension of PNG was designed by Mozilla folks.http://apn.gs/ff
SafariSafari is the default browser for Macs. WebKit, Safari's rendering engine, powers all browsers on iOS, meaning iPhones, iPads, and iPods with iOS 8+ now support APNGs.http://apn.gs/sf
