Hey, I've basically searched everywhere in trying to find out how to do this.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
As in, I'm trying to extract all the files from an animated .gif files to .png file while keeping transparency.

EDIT : Nevermind, used C# instead.

The ImageIO class could have helped you out:

Hm, I've already tried that, but it fits the image to screen.
So if an image is 32x32 but it has a 2px border of transparency,
it'll become 28x28

Odd. I've tried that with a few images but all resulting images were equally large.

Weird, I tried it with this picture, but for this one, it doesn't resize tho, it just removes part of the picture.



Also, do you happen to know how to implement animated .gif files into slick?

It also happens to me with that image. My guess is that the GIF file was created with only the first image that large. I don't have any GIF editing software installed right now so I can't verify.

Not at all, sorry.

Hmm, I made that on photoshop and I'm sure every frame is the same size.
Extracting it with the C# extractor I had works fine, it's just that I'm having problems with this.
I need to do it on java so instead of using tons of images to animate it, I can just use a .gif file.
 
yeah, but ... what would PIE do? Especially concerning this tiny ad:
