In this post, we will show you how to convert GIF to APNG. Though animated PNG is less popular than an animated GIF image, sometimes you might have felt the need to have an APNG image from GIF. Once you get the output in animated PNG, you can open it in Google Chrome or other animated PNG viewer tools.
