Animated GIF's - the most annoying thing ever??

    I find animated GIF very distracting. Sometimes even hold one hand up  to cover it so I can read. What do you think? If small and is an avator that's OK - it does catches your eye -  but what about a big gif?

    Yeah animated GIF's and flash are things of past in my opinion. They clutter the web pages and you
    can never have a readable and nice website with them. Specially the color shifts and motion animation distracts readers and is very annoying.

    I agree they look cheap and tacky

    Yes, I agree, very distracting to the reader. I guess placement is the key. But the focus should be on holding reader attention on the text. Yeah, the more I think about it, the only time animation is necessary is if the hub is about a video game or a tutorial with a screen shot.

    You show me a page with an animated ad; I'll show you a departing paradigmsearch. big_smile

    You paying attention, Yahoo!?! And you, too, lately, MSN!

    I hate animated GIFs that repeat the same motion over and over again. I find the repetition very distracting and extremely annoying.
