GIF Export Problem
on Apr 20, 2016 at 12:59:24 pm

So I have been trying to export a GIF from photoshop, I went to File - Export - Save for Web (Legacy); and from there I left all the options the same (expect for "Preset" which I set for "GIF 128 Dithered"). But when I hit "Save..." the GIF has all the layers pill up on each other rather than animating as it should, so the 1st layer comes on, then the 2nd layer comes on leaving the 1st layer, then the 3rd layer comes on leaving both the 1st and 2nd layer etc. I search all over for a solution on the internet, but it seems like I am the only one who has ever experience this problem before, kind of hard to believe. So if anyone can offer any solutions I would very much appreciate it, thanks!

I really doubt this is going to help you but still.. You can try "save as"... gif instead of "export as".. gif. Let me know if this actually helped because I'd be... surprised...

Yeah when saving as a GIF the only option is "CompuServe GIF", I am not sure what CompuServe would mean, but it saves as a still image. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Some thoughts:

1) Does it play correctly in the animation timeline?

2) Does it play correctly in the save for Web animation preview?

3) Do you export with transparency? (I'd do it without)

1) Yes

2) No, the preview shows the same problem that's in the final product.

3) Yes, in fact now that I tried it without transparency the export works.

The only problem is that I was trying to get this GIF to be transparent, do you (or anyone) know why Photoshop would have problems exporting a transparent GIF? Actually is it a problem with Photoshop, or does Photoshop have a good reason for not exporting GIF as transparent? Thanks for the response btw.

Could it be that your original image has millions of colors and that your GIF image has only 255 colors. If you uncheck transparency your Gif could have 256 colors.
