Gifs with insert image

Hi all,

I want to create a report with a few gifs to explain certain sections of the report, but I'm a bit confused. 

When using the insert image option from the Power BI toolbar I can choose a .gif file, but it will just load a static image. However when you create an empty linechart (no title and random field on the axis), you can insert a gif in the plot area section, and now it works... I believe you can even upload the gif as background image and this wil also work.

So why not with the insert image option, is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? In my opinion it would be logical if you can just import the .gif through the insert image option.

Thanks in advance,
Stan

@StanTheMan ,

 

Currently you can add the GIF image as backgroud image and it will work. But use "image" button in the ribbon the GIF will be converted to static image. I don't think this is a bug but actually it can be improved. I would suggest you to create a idea here to help power bi improve.

 

Regards,

Jimmy Tao
