Animated GIF support in

I uploaded an animated GIF to the other day. Unfortunately, after upload it seems to have been converted to a PNG. At least this is what it now downloads, when I download the picture via the provided URL. So, animated GIF support would be neat :smile: .

Yes, gif support to would help a lot.


Use cases for animated GIFs:

  1. Documentation and prototyping of user interface behavior. itself uses GIF for documentation of UI behavior:

  2. Moving pictures as in Harry Potter’s favorite newspapers, Daily Prophet and Evening Prophet.

  3. Appropriate visuals for the excellent mySpace, err, WriteSpace theme :partying_face:
