TensorFlow 1 version

Decode the frame(s) of a GIF-encoded image to a uint8 tensor.
    contents, name=None

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.image.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.
