Has anyone experimented with using animated gif images on their hubs? if so was the Hubpages sight able to display them seamlessly?
Any animated gif you upload will be converted to a static image in jpg format. Try to find/make a video instead.
So this isn't worth then videos take a bit long to lo user has to click play button to start them. Animated gifs have the advantage of playing without any click
Readers don't like videos that play automatically. It is really very annoying to open a page and immediately have something with sound playing. The problem with allowing animated gifs in hubs is that people would load their hubs with stuff like this
It's the same reason why HP doesn't allow text colors or more html options. Some people have no sense of moderation, so we have to limit the options for everyone.
Oh boy I didn't meant that sort of gifs ..... all I wanted to use were animated gifs to demonstrate certain steps with more clarity in tutorials where you could follow a cursor executing some button or stuff like that.
These type of gifs should be permitted.
Someone suggested some time ago that we have gifs here at HP and I didn't like the idea back then because it can make articles look a little silly if used the wrong way. Then I started seeing very good articles on the Net that made use of gifs in an effective way like this one for instance http://io9.com/this-animated-data-visua … socialflow
But I agree with calculus, most people are not going to use gifs in an effective way.
