    I use GIMP and i tried making my GIF there, but GIMP only let's you safe in sfx format and IPTF doesn't allow that format.
    Changing the file extension made it look the same.

    gifs can only have a certain number of colors i think something around 250 so no mtter what program you use its going to look "blurry" the only difference is how the program mixes different colors to make another using interlaced dots. the best gifs are original animations with a small number of colors so they are under the color limit and there is not affect on them.

    edit: the color limit is 256
