Hello, my name is Grace and I need your help. I'm currently working on my church website and I am faced with a challenge. We are using GIFs and MP4 for our website headers and the size of the GIFs seem to be affecting the loading speed plus they get cropped on the website. The MP4s are much less in size but for some reason when I convert to GIF the size increases way too much. Please, does anyone know what I can possibly do to sort this out? Would really appreciate your help.
GIF images are naturally going to be LOTS bigger, it's a matter of compression. There's a reason we had them so small way back in the day . . . LOL. I would go with a movie format over GIF. If you want variety you can always use JPG images and a carousel loader to swap multiple images in.
Hello Bradley, thank you so much for replying. Would a movie format work well on mobile? If yes, how do I go about it, please? Could you please also throw more light on the JPG images and a carousel loader. I really appreciate the help, Bradley.
