GIF Size Too Large to Animate?
Try to resize smaller using a GIF editor, like ezgif.com. Ko-fi are planning to increase upload limits in the future.
If you sell GIFs in your Ko-fi Shop, make sure you upload the highest quality files as the Asset. Use a smaller sized GIF to animate your shop listing (You can add a watermark to the preview version).
