Image Editor to make transparent gifs

Hi guys hope you are all well and can assist.
Guys, Id like some advice.
I dont want to use Adobe Photoshop to do this, since really this is all I want the app to do.
I want to be able to use a relatively cheap app to create transparent gifs.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

You could use the Draw program in OpenOffice or LibreOffice or you can use Gimp

Thanks Dave, is there a tool that is dedicated to that feature, of making an image a transparent gif?

Not particularly, you have to identify the area you want to be transparent and that is defined either when you save it or by selecting an 'alpha' channel.  Depends on the program.
