If a picture is worth 1000 words how many words is an animated GIF worth?

Update: Images by ‘Stargazer‘ and words by ‘jslayeruk‘.


  1. An animated GIF is worth (attention span * 1000) words. 🙂

  2. Neha almost has it. I would say attention span/1000 words.

  3. Would a credit to the author of the quote and icon be appropriate?

    Icon by stargazer_dream on livejournal.com
    words by jslayeruk on livejournal.com

    I know because I use it as one of my own icons there.
