create animated gifs?

I want some software to create an animated gif from a sequence of pngs, preferabley with transparancy, and the ability to select the number of colours in the gif. Any ideas?

try the GIMP

Yep, I think with the gimp you have to import each frame seperately - but I guess gif’s aint often that long…

Open the first layer in Gimp. Then on the image window menu, go to ‘File’–>‘Open as Layers’, select what you want, save as gif, follow the instructions for animation.
