1) what is a good gif maker online or for download that does not slaughter the quality and that can take up to 100 or more jpegs?
A1) With research I answered my own question but if anyone is wondering the same then here you go:
I found that GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/downloads/) is a great program to use for Jpegs to Gif and its free. however I still had to optimized the gif in order to make it website friendly b/c it was too big, that was a good thing b/c the quality kept . but I just went to a gif edit website to do that.
2) tumblr keeps increasing the size of my gifs, even if they are small, to fit the full post which makes them blurry. IDK if there is a way around this, but if anyone knows please share
