Technical question--animated GIFs

Postby BobbyRoberto » Sun May 06, 2007 5:54 pm

I put together an invitation in Word that uses 3 animated GIFs and I want to send it to someone else. I looked through Word Help and saw that I had to save it as a Web Page, so I did. It works on my computer but when I sent it to someone else, it didn't work.

If anyone knows much about this kind of thing, please respond back. Thanks.

I'm guessing you just sent the web page? You need to send the actual GIF file as well otherwise when the page tries to load it, there's nothing for it to load.

Yup. Look for 2 files. The Animated Gif and the actual HTML page that is created. I don't know how Word saves the files but from the sound of it your only sending the page which shows up as a nice fat red X on your recipients computer. Attach both files or if he has a program (any windows computer do) you really should be able to send him just the .gif file.
