Ive made a GIF image in Photoshop CS6.

The gif is made up of three pictures that a fade animation.

This works fine when i run the gif within photoshop (the actual program) but when i save for web the transitions don't show, it simply just changes the images (with no transition).

Does anyone know why this is happening and what i can do to get the wanted effect?

Please tell me if you need more information

    Perhaps you don't have enough frames in your timeline to accommodate the fade? How do you have your frames set up on your Animation menu?

    Do you have Transparency checked in your GIF settings in the Save for Web window? Here is a link that has a solution to a similar problem: stoneleighphotography.com/making-a-gif-in-cs6-photoshop

  • I have the same problem: 3 pics, cross fade, in Photoshop everything's fine, in GIF or HTML -- no transition.

Which browser or application you try to preview the gif file? Every browser has its frame rate for animated gifs. For example if you give a frame rate under 0.6 ms delay to a frame, IE automatically round this 0.10. And this will make your gif faster and you could not see the transition. Try test in another browser and changing your frame rate.
