2. If you have inserted the image in a program like Front Page or PowerPoint, you will need to preview you document. In Front Page, click the preview tab, in PowerPoint view the slideshow. Animations appear as still images when editing your documents.
3. You may be using a program that does not display animation such as MS Word or Publisher. In these cases, you can use the "Save as Web Page" feature in these programs to view your final project with animation.
