I have found that sending a 2.9 MB gif, (animation), that it takes near 20 minutes, over my land line connection.

Then I found this ?

Have you considered exporting the presentation in HTML format and posting to the web? You could then send the link in the email.


I assume this means using a Image Host where the person would go to that link and download the gif., correct ?


Cause it would be great to have a place to post a gif. where I could send a lnk and there would be a live presentation, I guess that is asking a little to much ?


I used a zip compression to send that gif,. but it didn't seem to improve it much.

I use OE, and am looking for a better way.

Any suggestions ?


Also, I am wanting to know about the gif. attachments that are in my sent mail after I have sent it, they are running in the mail window, when you are looking at the mail you sent, . . are these continually running ?

That's slower than Dial Up - should only take a couple of mins through Broadband.
Problem with size limits through your ISP? - don't know.

Exporting the presentation in HTML format - probably refers to something like Powerpoint.

To host your .gifs, etc, Photobucket is one suggestion - you will have to set up a free account there
and check out the features; it's not something I use, so haven't a clue about the ins and outs of the setup,
but it seems quite popular and many members link to their images, etc. at Photobucket.

The .gif files will be running if the Preview is open in OE, otherwise one assumes not.
It's a Zen thing; is the light really off, when the refrigerator door is closed.

Hello PeteWills,

Yes, I see the option if you want your work to enter the public domain, . . and I will just have to put up with the dial up connection until something better comes along.

and although at one time the MS Power point may have had free trials I believe their rare, but seems to be something that is free and handles apps that Power point handles, I did post a reference to that a while back but have not had the time to explore it, anyway it was a rather large D/L.
