Animated Gifs Dont Animate in AOL 7.0 !!!!!!!!!

  Mad Boy 17:44 24 Feb 2003

For some reason i cant get anything working correctly in AOL.

Before (and stil on some occasions) i cant save graphics as the the save dialog box displays *.ART instead of *.Gif or Jpeg etc (i turned off compressing graphics aswell but no change)

Anyway before i could see gifs animate, unless these particular ones dont animate, their not animating!

please check this link and tell me if it should animate so i know that i have nothing to worry about:

Not sure if it'll work for AOL (I don't use it), but try emptying your Temporary Internet Files folder.

I am with AOL and I have just clicked your link and go a blank Tripod headed page but the animation "remote.gif" did not appear.

Aol use IE embedded in thier program but it acts diferently. If I have trouble I load IE seperately and it usually resolves the problem. You coul try that.

Have you tried creating an "Active Desktop" and saving animation to that? I have a three animations taken from web pages running, a dog running back and forth upto a yorkshire terrier doing cartwheels. I also have a animated map of the world showing positions of satlites and the sun at this current time
