Create your gallery
In order to begin, let’s start with a brand new gallery. Simply follow the steps for creating your first gallery.
Next, upload your animated GIF images to your Envira gallery. To do this, click the Select Files from Other Sources button and upload your images.
Once your images are uploaded, insert them into the gallery by clicking the Insert into Gallery button.
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.
Once you’ve set up the remaining settings for your gallery, click Publish.
And that’s it! You’ve now created an animated GIF gallery! Have a look at our own animated gallery below.

Q: Why isn’t my GIF animated when I view my gallery on my phone?
