I added a gif image to my website and it required a needlessly complicated workaround.
The browse window to locate the image file to add specifically lists .bmp, .png, and a few variations of.jpg images as the only ones it recognizes to add as images. This forced me to add a needlessly slow-loading png of my image to update my website, then upload my gif separately and manually edit the html file of the page to change the image tag from "Corona.png" to "Corona.gif."
All this because I can't find any settings to adjust the software to recognize gif imags as image files to add.
How can I make such a settings change to avoid the need for such kludge in future updates of my site? Simply saying that gif isn't supported could only be described as a product defect, considering that I might wish at some future time to add an animated image.
Just updated the software to version 188.8.131.5221 Professional and it still doesn't change my image. By typing in the file name and extension of the hidden file, I can get it to pretend to update the image on the project file, but when I export it I still have the slower-loading png version instead.
And I just got a support ticket answer stating that this software is designed not to allow this standard internet image format to be used. Be advised of this when considering purchase of it.
