Python question

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm new to the forum and the world of coding. I'm currently taking the beginners python 3 course. I'm on chapter 7 and I've just completed lesson 5 however I keep getting an error regarding the gif image that I saved from google. I'm certain the image is a gif file. Could there be something wrong with the image or the way it's been saved? I saved it to the desktop and a file folder. See the following error below and please advise. Thank you in advance.


========== RESTART: C:/Users/Dell/Desktop/Lessons/12.20.20_practice.py =========
