Can be:1: Leave. Will leave the image in place to be entirely or partially overdrawn by the next image.2: Background. Will blank out the area used by the frame with the background color.3: Previous. Will return the logical canvas to the previous state before the image was drawn.

Example
Creating a multiframe Gif image based on image files.
using (GdPictureImaging gdpictureImaging = new GdPictureImaging())
{
    // Create a new editable multiframe Gif image based on an image file and append frames from files.
    int imageID = gdpictureImaging.GifCreateMultiFrameFromFile("frame1.bmp");
    gdpictureImaging.GifAppendFrameFromFile(imageID, "frame2.bmp");
    gdpictureImaging.GifAppendFrameFromFile(imageID, "frame3.bmp");
    gdpictureImaging.GifAppendFrameFromFile(imageID, "frame4.bmp");
    gdpictureImaging.GifAppendFrameFromFile(imageID, "frame5.bmp");
 
    // Set the number of times the animation should be played, 0 = infinite.
    gdpictureImaging.GifSetLoopCount(imageID, 0);
 
    // Set the "frame time" for each and every frame to 1s and the frame disposal to leave the image in place to beentirely or partially overdrawn by the next image.
    int frameCount = gdpictureImaging.GifGetFrameCount(imageID);
    for (int frameNo = 1; frameNo <= frameCount; frameNo++)
    {
        gdpictureImaging.GifSetFrameTime(imageID, frameNo, 100);
        gdpictureImaging.GifSetFrameDisposal(imageID, frameNo, 1);
    }
 
    gdpictureImaging.GifSaveMultiFrameToFile(imageID, "image.gif");
    gdpictureImaging.ReleaseGdPictureImage(imageID);
}
