Does Hubpages allow GIF format images (the ones that appear to show motion)? I was thinking of developing one but I haven't seen on the site and wondered if it would work.
Hi Doug I believe that we can now use GIFs in our Hubs:

I'm not sure how but I think you just load them into a 'Photo' capsule and save ?
Interested to see how you go .
Thanks for the reply. I may try to make a GIF image in my next hub to see how it looks.
It sounds like a great idea and I will keep my eyes open for your post
I just added a gif to my article "The Contributions of James Clerk Maxwell to Science." The gif is near the bottom of the article and it seems to work well. Great!
Wow, great GIF can you tell us which program you used to make it ?
The GIF was a public domain image I found on-line. My next step will be to figure out how to make one myself. I have seen websites where you upload the images and they return a GIF.
I started tinkering with GIFs a few days ago after seeing this thread. At first, I was using other people's, but now am making my own at a site called giphy.
To see some in action, go to my profile and scroll down to "Learning the 20 Dragon Shouts of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim".
It has a bunch of them that I made recently.
The article has also passed an editor as it is.
My question for anyone who may go there, is having this many gifs (21) slowing down page loading time? It looks like everything else is loading up rather quickly, but the gifs are a little slow in showing up.
I checked out the cool looking GIF on your Hub. Is the site giphy easy to use? I may try my luck at make a GIF soon.
Yeah, it's not too hard to learn and is pretty user-friendly.
You have to have a bit of patience with it at times, especially if you are making a longer (10 to 15 sec) gif. It can take up to a minute to produce your gif (after time spent editing), but what the heck, it is free.
A lot of time was spent finding the right videos to use, as well.
I've been searching for an image for one of my stories and I saved a GIF for that as well. It was working when I introduced it into my hub. I think It would be a great idea using GIF format images.
Yep! I used one in a Christmas hub! Just add it like a picture or photo.

HubPages converts all .png and .gif images to .jpeg format, and appears to use some aggressive compression. Jpeg might be okay for photos, but for things like website or computer program screenshots, or clip art (containing large solid-color areas and text) the result is often very poor, even if...

I have been thinking about how I can give some of my hubs that receive less traffic more light. On our profiles, we can pick a bunch of hubs that feature in a "gallery" that fades in and out, right under our bios and above the published hubs listed in the bottom section. This year, my...

We all know how important encouragement is to new writers. Go find 3 Hubs that have zero comments and leave an encouraging note. All of your followers will see that you commented on their Hub and hopefully a few will leave a comment as well. Go find some new Hubbers and send them...
