No matter what I tried I wasn't able to use an animated gif as place a photo seems to be the only option. 

Is there a way we can use our own animated gifs on the templates/personal designs?

 

Thanks,

Alpay

Thank you But this is only good for converting videos into gifs but my question is if there is a way to use gifs in layouts. When gifs are placed they behave as still images.

Yes express should be able to import Photoshop files and play the GIF that was created in Photoshop. This would be useful so we can export the GIF to a video, duplicate the timeline, and schedule to Instagram! Would be a nice workflow!

Hi Kevin!
Cheers!

facing the same problem too. Been comparing both canva and adobe express. While in canva you can import cute gifs to make the social media post more vibrant and lively...this however shocking and lacking in adobe express. even importing gifs from photoshop doesnt work seamlessly. I just have to find another way to make this work.
