gifweasel is a fun little Mac OS X utility we put together to handle a common Web developer's task: converting an image to the GIF image format and making parts of the image's background transparent.

Now of course you can do these things with most graphics applications -- applications that take a while to load and learn, cost money, and most importantly, do not have any weasels.

Here then enters gifweasel. It's lightweight, it's free, it's easy to use, and yes, there is a weasel.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later

There is no simpler way to create a transparent gif image. All you do is drag/drop and pick the color to make transparent. This little app. saves me so much time.

If, like me, just about the only graphics manipulation you ever to need to do is to make images transparent in connection with designing Web pages (and maybe to hack up the occasional icon), making backgrounds transparent is about the only job you'll ever need to do, and using a serious graphics program for that purpose is like using a howitzer to kill a mosquito. This little utility works just fine and it's a freebie. Thanks to the author.
