Animated GIF in a Carousel


#1

We have some products that we’d like to show the function of in a carousel on the main page. I was thinking this could be best done with a gif but the new carousel builder doesn’t seem to accept them. Is there another option for the carousels that I could use?

the recommended image size for the main image carousel is 1920x600 pixels. To make this into a gif would cause:

  1. Slow page load time
  2. Slow rendering of the animation

We can allow gif file to be uploaded to a carousel however we wouldn’t recommend it for the reasons above. Have a think about it and open a ticket if you still want to proceed.
