Powerpoint and gif files

I have a great powerpoint presentation that I wanted to liven up with a few active gifs... how do I enable them in powerpoint? When I cut and paste them... they are intert, not active.

Hi, GregJRob,

There shouldn't be any problem.  I located one on the Internet, right-clicked, copied, then pasted into a slide, then pressed F5 to view the slideshow and it worked fine.

Maybe something is happening to the GIF along the way...?

Regards,
Slynky

rather than copy/paste... save the image..make sure it is .GIF..the  insert image into your presentation.

irwinpks,

I wasn't advocating copy/paste.  I merely listed the steps I took to verify what I thought to be the case--that annimated (and I say 'annimated' since a GIF doesn't have to be annimated) GIFs work fine in PP.  I then suggested he might be doing something along the way with his GIF file that "deleted" the annimation effect.

Regards,
Slynky
