Saving animations as animated GIFs

    Animations that you view in a Web browser are called animated GIFs. When you save an optimized document containing an animation, you can choose to generate an HTML file that contains code for displaying the animated GIF in a Web page. The resulting Web page can contain just the animated GIF or additional Web features, such as links and rollovers, depending on the source document.

To save an animation as an animated GIF:

  1. Optimize the animation. (See Optimizing animations.)
  2. Save the optimized image. (See Saving optimized images.)
