Hello,

It states on your product information page:

"Import images of JPG, PNG, GIF or BMP format"

How do I export to Gif? I can only see options for BMP, JPG and PNG. Without the Gif option (which is fairly popular for logos) this software is useless.

How come no-one has replied to this? Stating your software supports a format it doesn`t is misleading advertising.

Or am I missing something?

Ok, I now realise it does state that exporting isn`t for gif, but importing is.

Still pretty useless without the option to save as gif.

Simple fix is available for free.

Export as PNG, then convert to GIF file. If you don't have software to do this, download Gimp (it is a free photo editing program that is better than Photoshop) at http://www.gimp.org and just open the PNG and save it as a GIF.

I find that the difference between PNG and GIF is dependant on the individual image and sometimes very small. Anything with an alpha channel will increase image size.
