    there are so many super simple programs out there. In photoshop, you can build each frame 1 at a time, then just put them together in any of the dozens of animated gif programs available at www.download.com and save it as an animated gif.

    But that's the most basic way of doing it.

    Yeah, but I want the source code. I want to make a animated GIF compiler for my work...

    the lzw compression algorithm used in creating gif files is patented by unysis, and as far as I know, you'd need to pay them for a license on that algorithm to make that program...unless by work you mean just fucking around personalwise.
