I'm looking for a program/image viewer/gallery that I can point to a folder and see thumbnails of all the animated GIFs doing their animation.

Or something that make the GIFs animate without having to open each file.

Does such a thing exist?

Open notepad, put this text inside:

FOR /F %%G IN ('dir /B *.gif') DO echo ^<img src="%%G"^ width="40"^>^ %%G^<br^> >> gifs.html

Save it with name "whatever.bat" in folder where you have your gifs located, but choose "All files", not "Text file". Then navigate to your folder and doubleclick on whatever.bat. This will create another file called "gifs.html" in current directory. Doubleclick on it and you will see your gifs in web browser.

thanks for the reply. I did everything you mentioned but when I doubleclick on whatever.bat nothing is happening... – saitsu Jun 21 '11 at 9:13
oh wait this time I tried to save the whatever.bat with the encoding UTF-8. When I doubleclicked on it indeed created another file called gifs.html but when I doubleclick on this one it only shows a white page in the browser. – saitsu Jun 21 '11 at 9:23
then you did not save whatever.bat to folder where you have gifs – gadelat Jun 21 '11 at 9:36
I have six gifs in the folder where I saved whatever.bat – saitsu Jun 21 '11 at 9:39
Try another browser. If it does not help, open gifs.html with notepad, copy content, put it to and put here link to it. – gadelat Jun 21 '11 at 9:46
