TensorFlow 1 version

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

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.
