Thought I’d take a look at the animated GIF and to see if it was worth while to add it to my content offerings. First thing I realized was that taking actual video and turning it into a animated GIF comes with a cost (image quality and large file size). As my captions are all 1280×720 and I don’t want to decrease that size or quality, I decided to create a caption like the one above. It’s basically four images that are on a rotating loop and the file size is just under 1mb.
Let me know what you think and if you want to see more animated GIFs like this in the future.
