Gifs look horrible, why?

These gifs look fine when played outside of Storyline. They were made using a high-resolution monitor and Snagit. 

When added to an SL slide the quality is absolutely terrible. It is set at 100% and I published for high quality.

Hello Jeni,

Indeed there is a mix of blur and pixel. This has already happened to me when you don't keep the native dimensions of the GIF.

I imagine that in your case, you have reduced the dimensions of the GIF a little so that it fits into the slide.

If this is possible for you, you could use a video instead of the GIF, the quality would be better.

I hope this has been helpful to you. Let me know if you want more details.

Have a nice day.

Hi Jeni,

We use Snagit, too, and are happy to look into the quality of the GIF with you!
