Re: Add a animated gif to powerbi

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I don't think there is an option to add an animated gif on Power BI Desktop currently. 

 

Based on my test, you should be able to add an animate gif by adding it as Web Content on a Dashboard in Power BI Service. Smiley Happy

Not sure you can add GIFs specifically, but you can add video. Have you tried adding the GIFs as video? Cna't test myself due to restrictions.

Re: Add a animated gif to powerbi

Sorry, old topic but at Data Insights I learned that GIFs could be added to a report by using the plot area of an empty chart.  Just add one value to the axis of a Line chart visualization and hide the title.  A workaround clearly but it works.

Here is an example of how to do this. Thanks @Markcgraff for the idea.

 

Step 1: Add line chart to report. Add a single column to the line chart

Step 2:Change the plot area in the formatting tab to your .gif image. Set transparency to 0%. Hide the title

Step 3: Resize the visual so the entire gif shows. It should now show the animated .gif

 This is the bees knees. This is exactly what I was after. I wanted to insert a really quick gif to guide new users on my landing page.

 

You are a legend.

 

Thanks

Chris.
