Gif Animation
« on: January 15, 2015, 05:07:15 am »
Can I load my images as Gif file with an animation effect to show the before & after results in one image?
Is a gif file accepted in a post?

Thanks
Later, Sktcher11 :)

Hi sktcher11!

You can add an animated gif to the forum only by inserting a link to the image in your post, not in attachments.
Upload an image to any free service, for example, to Dropbox, then place a link using the Insert Image button.

Thanks Kat for the info. I'm not familiar with these service's.
Will check them out, do you have a link to any of these site's
or recommend a good one to use?
Do you think it's a good idea to display image's this way or should
I just post the before and after jpeg images?
Later, Sktcher11 :)

Hi sktcher11,
It's a very useful service: https://www.dropbox.com
As for your question: as you wish. ;) I think before and after images work well.

Hi Kat,
Do you mean that it's better to see the before & after images as separate images included in the post
or as a gif? Don't know if a gif is the appropriate way to see the before and after and how well it would work
to display the images? The reason I asked about the gif was to be able to display more attachments
to a single post if you had more than 4 attachments to post. ( current limit to a post ).

I prefer to see the before and after images in a post to see how the program recreated the image.

Thanks for the link.
Later, Sktcher11 :)
