iWeb: Working with GIF format in Photo Album pages

In iWeb, if you publish an image in GIF format the thumbnail for the photo may not appear on your Photo Album page.

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

To resolve this issue, check the following:

  • Do not drag the GIF into an iWeb Photo Album from the Finder--use the Media Browser instead.
  • Do not use any special characters in the GIF file name.

When placed via the Media Browser in an iWeb Photo Album an animated GIF will appear as a static graphic. If you want an animated GIF on your website, place the GIF on the iWeb canvas.
