Animated GIF Resize allows you to upload and resize animated GIFs to your WordPress blog.

If you have ever tried to upload an animated GIF to your WordPress blog, you may have noticed that the smaller versions of your image will not be animated. On most blogs, WordPress uses the GD library to perform resizing of your images. Unfortunately, this library does not cope well with animated GIFs.

This plugin fixes the problem, using GifCreator and GifFrameExtractor by Clément Guillemain. This plugin simply integrates these two classes with WordPress.
