Input a new value in ms for the delay or duration. The new value will replace the duration or delay of all selected frames. The original duration can be found in the thumbnails preview at the bottom. For example, if the original duration is 30ms, you can change it to 60ms, so the GIF file will play half of the original speed.

Decrease or Increase

Input the value, the amount of change to the original amount, to decrease or increase the duration or delay of each selected frame. It is the amount by which something decreases or increases.


Scale value is the percent value, between 1% and 1000%, but the final duration of each frame will be restricted to between 10ms and 25500ms. It is the ratio of the amount of change to the original amount.

Step 4. Export fast or slow motion GIF

When you have finished adjusting the GIF animation speed, click File > Save as. Choose Gif as the output file type, Default(.gif) or other preset for GIF according to your needs, customize other settings or parameters if like. And then hit the Save button at the bottom of the Save as sidebar to export GIF file to your computer.
