Hello yoyoicecube,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Animations don't work in photo viewer, don't know anything about picasa. Some photoediting software can play gifs. Your web browser should play the animations. You can associate .gif with your web browser. Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations. Select .gif and change. Select your web browser.

Hope this helps.

Gary

You have to go to following address on your computer.
Control Panel > Programs > Default Programs > Set your default programs . then select Windows photo viewer and click on Choose defaults for this program. there you can tik (select) tif, tiff, bmp, and gif extensions. then click on Save and feel difference

You can view .gif files in Irfanview, plus it's a handly application that does much more IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide
