For anyone running a Tumblr blog, this is the best news ever! My history with Tumblr has resulted in me finding work arounds for all the niggles and quirks with uploading animated gifs. Uploading a gif used to be an absolute nightmare. If your gif contained too much red, was too high contrast, contained one too many frames or Tumblr just didn’t like it, you would spend the next two hours losing your mind trying to guess the magic formula for uploading it.
Seems all our petty issues have been solved! Gifs can now contain up to and over 500 frames, high contrast (as in the above gif) is no longer an issue and colour no longer has a say in the struggle!
