  • Gif question...

    I have some links in my header of my website that I'm trying to make more attractive by using a tiny gif file that adds visual affect. This gif file is supposed to work like this:

    When the user hovers over the image and or link, the image is supposed to display a motion after which the remaining 2 layers of the gif image are supposed to repeat. Keep in mind that the final moment which the mouse remains hovered over the image, it is not in :active mode, but still, in :hover mode.

    Can this be done? Have a gif that has only 2 or so images within the entire gif file only repeat while the others are cycled through only once?

    It's not the image that does what you want, it's Javascript or CSS or Flash...

    The image you set to hover is going to be your animated version while the others may be static. There's some issues with that though, animated files take up file size and may not be loaded up when roll over.

      You could do it with multiple GIF files and a CSS/JS trick but you'll probably want to use Flash. I'd advise against using too much animation on your site.

        Only the one instance where the marker line didn't go to the first paragraph marred what was a really fun experience.
        I sort of like the story premise too. Are you going to continue it?

        Where I went to high school, one of the school colors was maroon. In football, our arch enemy had a school color that was called cardinal (red). Didn't stop the two teams from playing on the same field....

        Make it reveal on scroll. Not on roll over of the center. I ended up doing the fromer. I know that kind of sucks to find an event for, but I scrolled all the way down before I saw anything.
