Animated Gif Images - Problem with blogger

When I tried to include a graphical image in my blogspot web page I noticed that the gif image was not changing and it was just static. I actually uploaded the image to blogger and embedded the image in my web page. But it looked just like any other jpeg image out there and lacked its graphical capabilities. I just couldn't figure out what the problem was. My html tag was flawless and the gif image is working perfectly fine on my desktop. Then I realized that the bug was with blogger. So I tried to upload the image to a free image hosting service like imageshack and then linked it to my web page. The problem was solved and my gif image is now moving and showing its animation characteristics perfectly.
