    Welcome m.vinay09

    Please use code tags when posting code to the forum. Instructions can be found on the Announcements page
    What do you seem to be stuck on in creating your .txt file from the .gif?
    Can you read the .gif? Can you save to a .txt?
    Please explain what you are having trouble with.

    I understand what you wish to do. We do not write solutions, we offer advice to people writing their own solution when they have a question.
    If you have a question post it and hopefully someone will try to answer it
