    Unhappy How do I add an animated gif icon to my thread on CA

    I created an animated gif in photoshop but I dont know who to get it to display on my thread. I have posted some of my drawings on this thread but for some reason the gif stays as a static picture. But on my pc the animation works, can someone please tell me how to upload an animated gif on my thread thumbnail?

    well does the animation gif work? open the .gif file in your browser and see if it plays.
    (right click image and open with > internet explorer or firefox)

    Other than that it just like posting an image only that its a .gif instead of a .jpg

    maximum size accepted is 2.33gb but even so, a large file could be why its not playing when you upload it. Is your gif icon size and very short? if not tweak it until the site does play the animation
