So I’ve noticed some of you guys have Gifs as profile pics & and animated titles and I really want to do that, but my gifs don’t seem to animate when I try. How can I do that on an iphone (if I can)?

OK SO! Pet might have figured this out!

So, i think it has something to do with how big the file is? I noticed that my Tom Riddle gif worked perfectly fine while my Rita Hayworth GIF wasn't working at all. I looked around in my picture properties and found my file size for Tom Riddle was around 57kb while my Rita Hayworth was 557kb!!

After i saw that, i decided to lower my file size for Rita by playing around in my photoshop. I set Rita to 150 x 150 which gave her 352 KB and now it works!

So you may need to play around with the sizing of the GIF you want to use! Rita is the one i'm using right now and the size is 150x150. My Tom riddle GIF was 220 x 125.

I hope this helps out a bit!

Thanks for this thread really useful and totally appreciate as a newbie. I hope to focus on the astrology side of LSA, but hopefully this information will come in use.

Right. If the size is too big it won’t work.
