XF 1.5 Animated gifs not animating with some sizes

    We recently migrated to XF, so I apologize if this is an easy admin setting or something I'm unaware of. We're noticing that animated gifs are only animating at some sizes - here's some text from the user that investigated this:

    Is this by design? Is there a way to make it so all of the sizes animate? Thank you!

    Confirm that you have ImageMagick installed, the ImageMagick PECL enabled in PHP processor and that you have selected the ACP option to use ImageMagick instead of GD.

    Ah! Imagemagick indeed wasn't set as the default, thanks so much for that tip (I never ran into that setting as we don't allow attachments - bit of a weird place for the image processing setting to live)

    Works perfectly now, thank you again!

    No problem.. it will only work with new uploaded ones... the existing ones will not convert over.
