What is an animated GIF?
Animated GIFs are several images or frames combined into a single file that shows a short animation.
How to add GIFs to your menu
You can now add GIFs to items in your Flipdish menu. Anywhere you can add an image, you can add animations of any format.
- Choose the base image you want to create an animation with for your menu.
- Depending on your level of graphic expertise, you can use photoshop to create your animated image or choose an online GIF creation tool (just make sure you check their terms of usage).
- Option: Add text or stickers to your image e.g New, Daily deal, Winter Special, Gluten-free.
- Save/download the file and re-upload to your menu, in the same way you would add an image.
Note: Depending on the format used, animations will have a much larger file size than static images. Although we optimize the best we can, we still recommend using animations sparingly in menus as they can increase the load time for customers, especially on mobile devices.
