Decode the frame(s) of a GIF-encoded image to a uint8 tensor.

Used in the notebooks

Used in the tutorials

GIF images with frame or transparency compression are not supported. On Linux and MacOS systems, convert animated GIFs from compressed to uncompressed by running:

convert $src.gif -coalesce $dst.gif

This op also supports decoding JPEGs and PNGs, though it is cleaner to use tf.io.decode_image.

contents A Tensor of type string. 0-D. The GIF-encoded image.
name A name for the operation (optional).

A Tensor of type uint8.
