Animated GIF Images are not Animating

Sandvox fully supports animated GIFs. It will also allow you to convert a GIF image to PNG or JPEG format if desired. Note that if you do, the animation will be lost once published. If you've accidentally done this, remedy it by:

  1. Select the image
  2. Open the Object Inspector
  3. From the "Format" popup, select "GIF"

In order to preserve the animation in GIF images, Sandvox does not alter the original image that you include in your document. If you shrink it down from its original size, the image will not be rescaled (as happens with a PNG or JPEG image). If you provide a large animated GIF file, and shrink it down to a small size, it will take as long to load as if it were full-size.
