HOW TO save animated gif images from received email.
Submitted by FA

You have just received an email with lovely animated gif images and you want to save them to be used later on. If you just right mouse click on the animated image and choose SAVE AS in Microwsoft applications, you will end up saving a .bmp still image, more exactly the very first frame of the animation and not an animated gif, as .bmp is the default image extension for Windows Explorer. But that's not what you want, do you?
I could not get comfort for my problem on the web so I came up with a possible solution that I am sharing with you here below. ………. Be aware of copyright though, hahaha.

Steps to follow:

a. Click on REPLY on the menu bar, as if you were to reply to that email
b. Go to FILE and click on SAVE AS or on some computers SAVE AS A WEB PAGE
c. Change the file format at the bottom of the window to .HTML or .HTM
d. Write a name for the file you are to save and memorize it
e. Leave the destination folder at the top of the window as is, namely MyDocuments folder.
f. By saving it as HTML, your computer actually saved one HTML file into MyDocuments with the name you chose for it ( point 4 above ) plus a repository folder for the image and sound elements that are used in your html file, with exactly the same name.
g. So, got to MyDocuments folder in Windows Explorer and find the REPOSITORY FOLDER, click it open and there you have your sweet animated gif files and not just a boring still .bmp image.

Now, you can copy it onto a hard drive or your Memory Stick and use it next time either inserting it into your email or a .HTML web page.
Oh yes, unless you a have a media software like IrfanView you can only see the animation when it is implemented in a web browser or an email application ( eg. Outlook).
Good luck and enjoy!
