I have uploaded a gif image for a product, after uploading it is working in the backend, but When I go to frontend on product details page it is not working I mean it is not showing its animated view.
It converts it into another gif image.
i.e. if you upload photo.gif it will now be photo_1.gif
Use an FTP Program to upload the original photo.gif, but rename it to photo_1.gif and overwrite the smaller converted file.
The animated gif should work now.
This works on Magento 1.9x for Category images
