What is an Animated Post?
It is a moving visual in GIF format. GIFs are one of the most viral and popular content types at social media networks. Of course, PromoRepublic provides such interactive images.
For now, Animated Posts are not editable. However, we’ve created them to fit perfectly into every social media feed and to look great on desktop and mobile.
How to download PromoRepublic GIFs?

There is a size restriction, though. Your Animated Post should be no bigger than 15 MB and minimum dimension 600x600px.
What Social Networks support Animated Posts?
