Free component to slice GIFs up

I'm writing a program to help me slice images up for use on web pages. I've found a few free programs and have a copy of Paint Shop Pro v8, but want to write my own.

Does anyone know of a free component that will enable me to load a GIF, specify a set of coordinates and copy the content to a new GIF? VB6 lets me load a GIF, but will only save the portion as a BMP.

I'll also accept code to do what I want using API calls, as I know there are techniques to do this.

Hi, and thanks for that. Unfortunately they are all about displaying animated gifs, whereas I want to edit a non-animated gif. Any other ideas?

If it's static, try use PictureBox or Image Control and it will display the image you want. like:

Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture("C:\test.gif")

or

Image1.Picture = LoadPicture("C:\test.gif")

Hope this helps

As I said in the opening question, VB6 lets me load a GIF, but will only save the portion as a BMP. I need to save it as a GIF.

Hi

The first link (saving an image as a GIF) enabled me to solve the problem in a different way. I'm having to write my own component, but writing the GIF was a substantial part of the problem because of the LZW compression.

Thanks.
