Why do I get "401 Unauthorized" trying to generate an animated GIF out of my uploaded images?

Cloudinary allows generating an animated GIF out of several uploaded images, and based on a tag which they all share.

For security reasons, generating of such GIF image is possible only via our API, and restricted for on-the-fly generation.

The following Ruby-On-Rails line of code will collect all uploaded images on your account which share the 'logo' tag and generate an animated GIF based on it.

Cloudinary::Uploader.multi("logo", type:"gif")

A response Json will be returned containing the URL to be used for delivering the new GIF: http://res.cloudinary.com/demo/image/multi/arrow_animation.gif
