GIF Animation Preview

Replace GIF animations to a static preview image

This plugin finds every GIF animation in your posts and replace it to a preview image. Doesn't matter the GIF embedded from another website or use WordPress's static thumbnail. It automatically generates the preview image from the first frame of the animation and save it to the post's media directory with -gap.jpg suffix.

Posts show the pregenareted small size jpeg file first, your visitors don't need to wait for download the huge animation. Play animation after they click on the image or after your whole page has downloaded. It depends on your setting:

  • You are able to stop animations everywhere
  • Or start animation automatically only inside a post
  • Or start the moves everywhere by default, use this plugin for lazyload

There are additional settings:

  • Pretty smooth effect between your preview and animation
  • Start animations with your mouse
  • Work with metadata and preview
  • Disable on certain images with nogap class

Don't worry, delete this plugin will remove all settings from your database. Generated preview images gonna stay there, you can use them everywhere until you delete them manually.
