Wondering what are the current support for animated GIF. Does Outlook '07 still only display the very first frame? Are there any other possible issues?
Is there a size limit to the GIF we can send?
Thanks for getting back to me on this guys! :)
Hi again Nicko! We published a guide to animated GIF support back in April and I don't think conditions have changed since then. To my knowledge, Outlook '07 only displays the first frame, so you should add your informational stuff there :)
There isn't a size limit, per se, however you should be very aware of how load times can potentially affect your response rates. For example, subscribers may not have the patience to download a 100k animated GIF, so try to use them more as small attention-grabbers, than sticking all your critical content in one.
Thanks, Nicko! If you have any questions about this, you know we're more than happy to lend a hand :)
