View Full Version : HELP-Animated gifs giving me problems

06-21-2005, 01:14 PM
Call me stupid, but I am having some problems with inserting animated gifs into dreamweaver. I created the gifs in Adobe's ImageReady and imported them as imaged into dreamweaver. When I preview the page, all I see is the first frame of the animation. When the page is published, all I see is a box with a red X in it. Please advise...thanks!

You have 2 seperate issues.

The first one is related to your graphic itself. If you only open the GIF (double-click on it in Explorer (pc)) you should see the animation. If it does not go further than the first frame, your error lies in how you made it.

Your second problem (red X), means that your browser/page cannot find the image. Either your link to the image from your html page is wrong, or your gif is in the wrong location. Same thing. It basically means the page is looking for the image in a location it is not.

Thanks...I will have to check out the location of the file. I am putting buddy icon for aim on my website. Shouldn't they play automatically without clicking them?
