Inserting animated clip art into Powerpoint

KateHamilton used Ask the Experts™
I am trying to insert an animated clip art into a powerpoint presentation, but my image does not move.

I have downloaded the animated clip art onto my computer that has internet, and have transferred it with a memory stick onto my computer that has Powerpoint.  When I open the images on Windows Picture and Fax Viewer they move, but when I try and insert the clip art on my Powerpoint slide, it is static and does not move.  Any ideas?

There are a couple of reasons why this might be.

The most likely is that you have not started the slideshow.
Animated gifs do not move until the slideshow is actually running (F5).


Great!  Yes - that sorted it, thanks.

No problem at all.

Can you accept my solution?
