You do not need a slideshow for GIF files, because a GIF file can be a slideshow himself.
Create an animated GIF and use it like an image in Rapidweaver.
I have integrated animated GIFs as banner images.
12 GIF images, each 1MB in size might prove problematic. I can foresee some iPhone and Android devices might encounter problems displaying that much animation. In the old days of dial-up internet, 12MB would be an all-night affair! It probably still is with some UK broadband suppliers…
I think you really want something that is going to lazy load the images - which means they only download and display individually when specifically requested. The only stack I have which can achieve this is the TopBox stack. But if you search Marten’s website, he might have a few more suggestions for you.
It would probably be wise to display a thumbnail grid of your 12 GIFs, but use resized JPG images for the gird. That way you are assured the page will load quickly for everyone. People can click on a static thumbnail image, and then you could have the GIF open inside a lightbox and load on demand. Most lightbox effects provide next and previous buttons, so it would be possible for people to navigate through your GIF collection with ease.
Hi all, i have just remembered that i did exactly the same thing (that Will suggested) with these GIF’s quite a while ago, where the visitor (if ever there was any ?) clicked on a jpg and the file opened and Animated, I also remember that the actual GIF files had to be uploaded to there correct position via FTP as i found Publishing the GIF files via RW they simply got converted to JPG’s .
@instacks what a plonker i am buddy, i have NOW found that Built In IMAGE stack you were speaking of, and it was in the Library just as you said it was
But i wasnt looking in the right place, i have just clicked on the Big Star icon in Library and of course this is the “Built In” section and image was listed under Your Head !!.
Thanks for giving me a push.
