Let me show you how to create a GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) which is an animated graphics format. I’ll then add this GIF to an image web part on SharePoint Online.This is great for banners, motivational posters etc. and a cool ‘replacement’ for the “slideshow image web part” etc. A GIF can also be added to one of the blocks on a Hero Web Part which I’ve written about before (#Microsoft365 Day 59 on https://atomic-temporary-35693276.wpcomstaging.com).
Purpose of this blog challenge: I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found https://atomic-temporary-35693276.wpcomstaging.com/microsoft-365/ . I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available. A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.
“You can also find me contributing to REgarding 365. I’m a member of a group of enthusiasts, sharing their stories, thoughts and opinions about Microsoft 365. Catch us at https://regarding365.com | @regarding365 on Twitter and regarding365 on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/regarding365 ”

Hi Lydia. You’ll have to give more info. I use PowerPoint to plan the Images the snip them all to the same size before loading them to the GIF maker site. Not quite sure what you mean by ‘doesn’t end up stretching’? I wrote another blog on creating banners for pages if that helps?
