Automatically Pausing Animated Images


Pause animated images by default, such as GIFs in Messages and Safari for your visual comfort.

Via Jeff Johnson:

In my opinion, the feature should have been highlighted in the WWDC keynote. It’s that huge.


It would be better if you could just click the image to play and pause the animation, but the contextual menu is certainly way better than nothing! More than 30 years of nothing… until now.

And you can’t see whether there is an animation until you click?

By the way, I seem to have found a bug in Sonoma System Settings where the “Auto-play animated images” toggle button appears to be enabled after it has been disabled. This happens when you quit and relaunch the System Settings app.

It seems like the most important settings are in Accessibility.
