If you're experiencing issues with GIF images being saved statically in Laravel 5.4, this could be caused by the
Intervention Image package, which is a popular package used for image processing in Laravel.
The issue is caused by the way the
Intervention Image package processes GIF images. By default, the package saves GIF images as a static image with the first frame of the animation. To save GIF images as animated files, you'll need to use a different method called
Here's an example of how to save a GIF image as an animated file using
$image = Image::make($gifPath);
// Resize the image if needed
// Save the image as an animated GIF
In this example, we're using the
encodeAnimatedGif method instead of the
save method to save the GIF image as an animated file. Make sure to specify the output path for the animated file when calling this method.
If you're still having issues with GIF images being saved statically, you could also try using a different image processing package such as
GD, which comes with PHP by default. Alternatively, you could try using a different version of
Intervention Image or another image processing package that supports animated GIFs.
