public class GifOptions : ImageOptionsBase

The GifOptions type exposes the following members.

Public methodGifOptions
Initializes a new instance of the GifOptions class.
Public methodGifOptions(GifOptions)
Initializes a new instance of the GifOptions class.
Public propertyBackgroundColorIndex
Gets or sets the GIF background color index.
Public propertyCode exampleBufferSizeHint
Gets or sets the buffer size hint which is defined max allowed size for all internal buffers.
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Public propertyCode exampleColorResolution
Gets or sets the GIF color resolution.
Public propertyDisposed
Gets a value indicating whether this instance is disposed.
(Inherited from DisposableObject.)
Public propertyCode exampleDoPaletteCorrection
Gets or sets a value indicating whether palette correction is applied.
Public propertyFullFrame
Gets or sets a value indicating whether [full frame].
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Public propertyHasTrailer
Gets or sets a value indicating whether GIF has trailer.
Public propertyCode exampleInterlaced
True if image should be interlaced.
Public propertyIsPaletteSorted
Gets or sets a value indicating whether palette entries are sorted.
Public propertyCode exampleMaxDiff
Gets or sets the maximum allowed pixel difference. If greater than zero, lossy compression will be used. Recommended value for optimal lossy compression is 80. 30 is very light compression, 200 is heavy. It works best when only little loss is introduced, and due to limitation of the compression algorithm very high loss levels won't give as much gain. The range of allowed values is [0, 1000].
Public propertyMultiPageOptions
The multipage options
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Public propertyCode examplePalette
Gets or sets the color palette.
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Public propertyPixelAspectRatio
Gets or sets the GIF pixel aspect ratio.
Public propertyCode exampleProgressEventHandler
Gets or sets the progress event handler.
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Public propertyCode exampleResolutionSettings
Gets or sets the resolution settings.
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Public propertySource
Gets or sets the source to create image in.
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Public propertyVectorRasterizationOptions
Gets or sets the vector rasterization options.
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Public propertyXmpData
Gets or sets the XMP metadata container.
(Overrides ImageOptionsBaseXmpData.)
Public methodClone
Clones this instance.
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Public methodCode exampleDispose
Disposes the current instance.
(Inherited from DisposableObject.)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize (Inherited from DisposableObject.)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as a hash function for a particular type.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodReleaseManagedResources
Releases the managed resources. Make sure no unmanaged resources are released here, since they may have been already released.
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
Protected methodReleaseUnmanagedResources
Releases the unmanaged resources. Make sure no managed resources are released here, since they may have been already released.
(Inherited from DisposableObject.)
Public methodToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodVerifyNotDisposed
Verifies that the current instance is not disposed.
(Inherited from DisposableObject.)
Protected fieldxmpData
XMP metadata of image.
(Inherited from ImageOptionsBase.)
This example demonstrates the use of different classes from SaveOptions Namespace for export purposes. An image of type Gif is loaded into an instance of Image and then exported out to several formats.

string dir = "c:\\temp\\";

//Load an existing image (of type Gif) in an instance of Image class
using (Aspose.Imaging.Image image = Aspose.Imaging.Image.Load(dir + "sample.gif"))
    //Export to BMP file format using the default options
    image.Save(dir + "output.bmp", new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.BmpOptions());

    //Export to JPEG file format using the default options
    image.Save(dir + "output.jpg", new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.JpegOptions());

    //Export to PNG file format using the default options
    image.Save(dir + "output.png", new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.PngOptions());

    //Export to TIFF file format using the default options
    image.Save(dir + "output.tif", new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.TiffOptions(Aspose.Imaging.FileFormats.Tiff.Enums.TiffExpectedFormat.Default));
The following example shows how to convert a multipage vector image to GIF format in general way without referencing to a particular image type.

string dir = "C:\\aspose.imaging\\net\\misc\\ImagingReleaseQATester\\Tests\\testdata\\2548";
string inputFilePath = System.IO.Path.Combine(dir, "Multipage.cdr");
string outputFilePath = System.IO.Path.Combine(dir, "Multipage.cdr.gif");

Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptionsBase exportOptions = new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.GifOptions();

using (Aspose.Imaging.Image image = Aspose.Imaging.Image.Load(inputFilePath))
    exportOptions.MultiPageOptions = null;

    // Export only first two pages. These pages will be presented as animated frames in the output GIF.
    Aspose.Imaging.IMultipageImage multipageImage = image as Aspose.Imaging.IMultipageImage;
    if (multipageImage != null && (multipageImage.Pages != null && multipageImage.PageCount > 2))
        exportOptions.MultiPageOptions = new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.MultiPageOptions(new Aspose.Imaging.IntRange(0, 2));

    if (image is Aspose.Imaging.VectorImage)
        exportOptions.VectorRasterizationOptions = (Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.VectorRasterizationOptions)image.GetDefaultOptions(new object[] { Aspose.Imaging.Color.White, image.Width, image.Height });
        exportOptions.VectorRasterizationOptions.TextRenderingHint = Aspose.Imaging.TextRenderingHint.SingleBitPerPixel;
        exportOptions.VectorRasterizationOptions.SmoothingMode = Aspose.Imaging.SmoothingMode.None;

    image.Save(outputFilePath, exportOptions);
This example shows how to Loads Pixel information in an Array of Type Color, manipulates the array and set it back to the image. To perform these operations, this example creates a new Image file (in GIF format) uisng MemoryStream object.

//Create an instance of MemoryStream
using (System.IO.MemoryStream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
    //Create an instance of GifOptions and set its various properties including the Source property
    Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.GifOptions gifOptions = new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.GifOptions();
    gifOptions.Source = new Aspose.Imaging.Sources.StreamSource(stream);

    //Create an instance of Image
    using (Aspose.Imaging.RasterImage image = (Aspose.Imaging.RasterImage)Aspose.Imaging.Image.Create(gifOptions, 500, 500))
        //Get the pixels of image by specifying the area as image boundary
        Aspose.Imaging.Color[] pixels = image.LoadPixels(image.Bounds);

        //Loop over the Array and sets color of alrenative indexed pixel
        for (int index = 0; index < pixels.Length; index++)
            if (index % 2 == 0)
                //Set the indexed pixel color to yellow
                pixels[index] = Aspose.Imaging.Color.Yellow;
                //Set the indexed pixel color to blue
                pixels[index] = Aspose.Imaging.Color.Blue;

        //Apply the pixel changes to the image
        image.SavePixels(image.Bounds, pixels);

        // save all changes.

    // Write MemoryStream to File
    using (System.IO.FileStream fileStream = new System.IO.FileStream(@"C:\temp\output.gif", System.IO.FileMode.Create))
