How to add an animated GIF to an email

If you try to add an animated GIF to your email using image uploader of your email program sometimes it will not work. You’ll find that the image has been added to your email but the GIF animation has been lost.

This normally occurs because during the upload process your image is rendered a second time by the servers storing the image and the animation is stripped out of the image.

To get around this issue is simple, all you need do is manually insert the image into your email using some basic HTML.

  1. Using your email software – like Flashissue – open the content section where you want your image to display.
  2. Paste the following code below into the editor box
  3. Replace the dummy link we’ve included for the image with the link for your own GIF
  4. Save and close
<p style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://www.flashissue.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/create-animated-gif-LIEcap.gif" style="width: 295px; height: 160px;" /></p>

Your image should look something like this in the email:
