    I am always amazed at what you teach us that I never knew PSE could do! I just tried this today and I love it! Thanks, Jen!

    I created the gif and it worked great on my computer and in the test mode. But when I try to upload it to the DS FB page, it comes in just as a photo. I tried uploading it as a video but it wouldn’t accept the gif to upload. So, I’m stuck. How do I get it to upload?

    The tutorial, by the way, is great. I even managed to make it work in CS5! Thanks, Jen!

      Can’t wait to see it Chris.
      This should help.
      To Auto-Play Videos & GIFs in your browser:
      – Go to Account (down arrow in upper right corner)
      – Choose Settings & Privacy
      – Choose Settings
      – Scroll down to “Videos” (it’s on the left)
      – Turn on Auto-Play
