Following on from this question PNG vs. GIF vs. JPEG vs. SVG - When best to use? regarding mr. @ChuckLeButt 's answer.
I have a situation trying to create and save for web a few picture slides merged into a gif. Each of every picture contain text layers over rich color image background. It's well known the fact that Photoshop it's best to be used for picture editing being a pixel based software not for text editing/output; On the other hand, Illustrator could be a good solution for text editing/output but not necesarily for editing pictures taking in consideration the fact that we are talking about a vector based software in this case. More than that, animated GIF's are loseless BUT indexed only. I suppose that somehow there shoud be a compromise (?!)
My quetion is, how do you approach these kind of situations, excepting the css/html/js alternatives for implementing and animating content in web design please? Thanks
