What are GIFs?
GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format. In essence, a GIF is a series of images that repeat on an endless loop. To create a GIF, you can combine a series of still images to build an animated sequence, or you can use existing video footage.
Uploading a GIF in Foleon works in the same way as uploading images. You can add GIFs to your page using the image element.
⚠️ Make sure that your GIF file size is a maximum of 2MB.
💡 In our interactive tour, we have included several branded GIFs that bring the page to life. Check out the GiF below to see what that looks like.
