I have a comic strip archive composed primarily of 800 x 1160 .png images, with a few .gifs and .png files of other dimensions, and while mcomix works okay, it doesn't play gifs or support tagging.

During my search for an alternative, I learned that YACReader can handle both formats, but when I try to open any of the images, the program says it's not supported.

I am installed on KDE Neon 15.x which is a for of Ubuntu 18.04

Is this something I can do? Do I have to build something up?

If you want to open images instead of comic files you have to use the “open folder” action. Just open the folder containing the images as it was a comic.

No, playing gifs has been requested but we haven't reached a consens on whether we want to implement that feature. So far we only display static gifs.
My answers are not necessarily official YACReader statements but mostly represent my own opinion in technical matters.

Hi, just download YACReader and trying to solve this same issue.
So once I open it as a folder, Is there any possibility to add the png files to my library?

Thank you.

Just zip those png files and the zip files to the library.

Comics are packed as zip or rar files containing images inside. You can change the extension to cbz to let other apps know it is a comic file.
