[Gimp-user] Time Lapse via GIMP

Forgot to mention:  Gimp 2.8

You also missed out operating system, assuming a version of Windows.

Judging by conversion times stated (and Nikon) these are big individual frames?
Gif format was really meant for an earlier smaller size era.

The immediate issue with frame order is easily solved in Gimp. Use Layer ->
Stack -> Reverse Layer Order.

Then it becomes a matter of work flow. 

Keep in RGB mode for as long as possible. A Gimp gif has the same 256 colour
palette for all layers. Exporting to gif automatically converts to indexed mode.
I think it is better to export the gif, then reopen in Gimp then optimise,
export again. Up to you.

Is the reason for using gif the ability to loop? Otherwise a video format will
give better results. There are applications that will easily produce a video
