Jpeg equivalent to Animated Gifs?

I have seen files like what is above that is simply a .jpg file but has animation with no observable java

My trademark is a slideshow animated gif such as what is found here

http://www.caprig.com/page2.html

I have had a slideshow like this for 10 years updating from time to time with new photos. Recently the site pulled my animated gif and said they only support jpg. Can you please tell me how I can do something similar with jpg/jpeg?

I know that some have done it, but I am not finding anything in all of my research. All of what am finding needs script put up with it and I am only allowed a jpg file in my profile photo area- no script.

HELP!

I am SO frustrated about this. :(

It's a gif mislabeled as a jpeg.

Create PNG images instead. They support the whole color spectrum JPG supports, can be animated like GIFs, and even support multi-channel transparency while GIF only supports one.

How can I tell if the site will accept PNG files and also, how do I make slideshows in PNG format - using what programs? Any that are free? I have Corel Photo Paint and Draw that are most up to date. My other programs area all pretty old.

PNG is a pretty common graphic format, so I'm sure you'll have no problem hosting it on a free site like Imageshack.us. I'm not a graphic designer, so all I have is an old copy of Photoshop and a real old program for making animated GIFs. I'd guess your programs would create animated PNGs the same way you made that GIF, unless they're real old like mine. As a web developer, I'd probably write some JavaScript to animate the PNGs, but that's because I excel more in development than design.

You said, "Recently the site pulled my animated gif and said they only support jpg." What site are you referring to? The animated gif on the page you linked to (wp05e72bd2.gif) is hosted on your domain, so I'm really not sure what the problem is in the first place. Your web host shouldn't have any problem hosting PNGs, animated or otherwise.
