Overview - Product Animated GIF Images Magento-2 Extension

This Magento 2 extension adds missing support of GIF images in Magento system. Presently if you upload a GIF image to the product then its animation will be lost when it will be resized and displayed on the front of the website. So we have developed this extension to add this missing support.
