Animated GIFs in Powerpoint

  JulieB 09:34 15 May 03

In school we run Windows 95, XP (and possibly others versions) and I always have a problem with animated GIFs in Powerpoint - '97 version. As soon as I insert one onto a slide, save the presentation and then go to view show, the animation does not work.

I have had a lot of problems with the same situation and have found out that animated gifs do not work on windows 95 or 98 but i have never used office 2000. animated gifs work in powerpoint xp but you cannot distribute them as a pack and go file due to the lack of a viewer that supports them, just one of a few things that are unsupported by powerpoint xp. If presentations are your thing try and persuade your school to purchase mediator 7 as it can be easily distributed with animated gifs fully functional.

I have just tested my Powerpoint with gifs and it works fine.
I am running XP and powerpoint 2002
