Here’s a question we got from a reader:
I would like to add an animated file into an Outlook message that i want to send to a friend having her 50th birthday. Not exactly sure about to go about pasting the animated gif image into the message. Any help is appreciated!
The process is pretty simple, we’ll explain it using Outlook 2016, although you can implement this procedure using Microsoft Office version 2010 and up. Note that you are not only able to embed animations (being gif, swf files) into the content of the email you’ll be sending, but also to add those gifs into your Outlook custom signature.
