Looking into Bannersnack’s available download formats, we will notice that there are actually 2 variants of the GIF format, one of them being static.
Static and Animated GIF's
All designs acquired in the static GIF format will have a .GIF extension to the final product once you’ve downloaded them through the format mentioned. They will still behave mostly like a singular image file, just like a JPG or PNG would, meaning that only the first slide will show and animations along with slide transitions will be disabled.
If you’re looking into downloading an animated version of your design in a GIF format, you should always make sure that you are choosing the correct version from our download list.
