Animated GIFs in Mac PowerPoint 2008

Animated .GIFs are a quick and easy way to add a bit of life to a PowerPoint slide.  Plus they are so easy to use. Simply insert them as a picture and they will animate when you view the slide show.

Animated GIFs work great in PowerPoint for Mac

This is all great unless you’ve been running PowerPoint 2008 for Mac.  The original version of PowerPoint 2008 didn’t have good support for the venerable animated GIF format.  But Microsoft has come to the rescue with an update to PowerPoint 2008.   The update is called the Office 2008 Service Pack 2 and it was released in July of 2009.

This free update fixes various issues and adds complete support for animated .GIFs.  If you’ve been updating your software all along, you likely are already running this patch.  But if you are experiencing difficulties with our animated gif animations in Mac PowerPoint 2008, it’s likely that you need to update your software.

      Hi Roger, Keynote 09 can open and edit any of our PowerPoint templates. However we are indeed looking at expanding our Keynote support especially for Keynote on the iPad.
