Hello Bastien,

The maximum file size for each image you upload to Rise is 5 GB. As far as recommendations or best practices, I'll leave that to the advice of the community based on their experience.

You can add a GIF anywhere you can add an image--Labeled Graphic, Image centered block, and Image full-width block to name a few!

Check out this article for more information on best practices with images, videos and audio in Rise courses.

This is with the assumption that you're using the GIF for animation purpose.

We try to keep our animated gifs that we use as cover images under to 2-3 MBs total and at a 16:9 aspect ratio. Most of our ani-gifs are just Camtasia projects exported as Animated Gifs with very minimal amination. 

For standard gifs with no animation, I'd expect something nearing 1000px x 1000px to come in at well under 300KB file size. But, in that case, I'd also lean towards JPG or PNG.
