This class can be used to create PNG format animations from a list of images.

It can add to the animation any number of images previously loaded or created by the PHP GD extension functions.

The alignment of each image and the delay between animation images is configurable.

The class can generate an animation file in PNG format that is compatible with the regular PNG image format.

Browsers and programs that do not support the PNG animation image format can still show it as if it consists of a single image.

GIF is a popular format for displaying animations in Web pages. However GIF is limited to 8 bit color images.

PNG is an image format that supports 24 bit images. A backwards compatible extension of PNG format allows it to be used to display animations with 24 bit color images.

This class allows generating animations in PNG format using pure PHP code.
