Gif Images

I've seen several ppl upload gif images into threads, so I'm hopeing someone can help me out with this. My phone does "animated photos" (gif) images, but when I upload them into a thread from the app it just uploads a still image (jpeg). Any ideas how to get a gif to upload and work properly?

Use photobucket. Upload your gif into Photbucket, copy the IMG link, then paste into your thread.

I use Photobucket for all my online photos, easy to use and easy to access. The Photobucket app for my android lets me one click upload photo's off my phone.

Are you sure it's saved as a gif file and not the phone processing multiple jpegs to form animation?

Easiest way to find out is through the file browser on the phone or plug into a pc and check the file extension.

Also the app might not supports gif as direct upload? (Unless that's what Voodoo did)

edit: I didn't think WT supported animated GIFs... guess TapaTalk always 'fixed' it for me. Looks like Photobucket DOES work.

If so when you copy the link select "Copy Image URL" instead of "Copy Link Address"
