animated gif does not play

Jun 05, 2013

I have inserted an animated gif file (simple picture). When I play the lesson as a "slideshow", the gif file plays. When I publish the lesson, it does not. Any ideas on how I can make it work?

Hi Juergen, 

Presenter does not support animated GIF files.  However, you may be able to convert your animated GIF to a Flash movie (SWF), and then insert the SWF file into your Presenter presentation.

A web search will reveal many GIF-to-SWF conversion tools.  Here's one free converter:

There are also paid converters with additional features, such as:

Another option is to insert your animated GIF into an HTML web page, and then use the Web Object feature in Presenter to embed it into your presentation.  To learn more about the Web Object feature, see the following:
