Your last step before publishing your gallery is to make sure you’ve selected the original image size. This is a very important step. If you don’t choose the Original Image size from the Image Size dropdown, your GIFs will not animate in the gallery.

Navigate to the Config tab. From the Image Size dropdown, choose Original Image as the size.
