I have created over 600 images from a simulation I ran. I want to convert these images into a GIF format. Can you provide me a way to do so and one that allows me to show each image for >1second.
convert -delay 100 -loop 0 image*.png animation.gif
image*.png with whatever your images are named.
Install it with:
sudo apt-get install imagemagick
Beware that you'll need a lot of RAM for 600 files.
...is a good GUI tool for converting and compressing images. It might be able to help you here. I'm aware of the ImageMagick answer, this is a GUI solution.
Its website is http://converseen.sourceforge.net.
Available in the default repositories.
sudo apt-get install converseen
Ubuntu 13.10 and earlier
Not available by default but there is a (probably not dedicated) PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/apps sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install converseen
To show each image for > 1 second, open one of the images and your default image viewer should open. On a fresh install of Ubuntu Eye of Gnome Image Viewer will open.
To start a slideshow:
Click View ▸ Slideshow or press F5.
Image Viewer will start a slideshow of each image in the folder.
You can customise the slideshow settings, like how many seconds each picture should be displayed for, in the Slideshow tab of Preferences:
Click Edit ▸ Preferences ▸ Slideshow
