If the image is supposed to be a static part of your application (like an about box branding image or the like..) I would recommend converting to bmp (asair gif holds only 256 colors, so choose a bmp format likewise), and then add it to your resources.

You can insert 24 bit bmp in your dialogs too, even though it won't show in the resource editor since it supports only 256 colors. 24 bit images will give you way better anti aliasing (smoother, softer look).

I use irfanview because it loads fast, supports a bunch of formats, resizes and converts between formats very swift. This way no code is really needed to get the image shown (well, depends on your task ofcause...) only playing around with the resource editor.

Thanks for the URl. I will be trying them early next week.

My Gif will be having 2 frames so Ruskialt, so are you saying that I should display these 2 frames in a timer loop?

Well, you must sum up pros and cons for both solutions, the animation ofcause makes things cumbersome. The links above are new to me, but seem better gif solutions than I've previously seen. The last one even supports animations. I would take an hour or two to investigate those links..

Good luck
