NAME

gif2ajpeg - Convert an animated GIF to an Animated JPEG (AJPEG) on command-line

SYNOPSIS

  gif2ajpeg [options] <input-file> [output-file]

OPTIONS

--quality, -q

When frames are extracted from the animated GIF, gif2ajpeg converts them to JPEGs. The quality setting allows to control the per-frame JPEG compression quality. Defaults to 75, but lower values usually yield good results.

--keep-mtime

Flag. Tells gif2ajpeg to adjust the file modification timestamp (mtime) of the output-file to be the same as the mtime of the input-file.

--force, -f

Flag. Force overwriting of an existing output file.

--debug, -d

Flag. Switch debug output on.

EXAMPLES

  $ gif2ajpeg input.gif output.ajpeg

When the output file is omitted, gif2ajpeg will write to a file with the suffix .ajpeg and the input file's basename:

  $ gif2ajpeg --keep-mtime --quality=72 ~/some/animated.gif

To batch convert a number of animated GIFs, you can use simple shell scripting:

  $ for i in ~/some/*.gif; do gif2ajpeg --keep-mtime --quality=72 "$i"; done

SEE ALSO

More information about what this script does can be found in the documentation of the backend module Image::Animated::JPEG.
