See my avatar? Well it's supposed to be a screen cleaner...the kitty is licking the screen. Does anyone know how I can size an animated gif and it still stays animated? I can't do it!!!
I've downloaded like 3 different programs and I just cannot do it.

Please help!

Nope, he doesn't 'lick' when added to the message area either.
Hmmm, someone more GEEKIE SMART than I will have to solve this problem.

When I open the image in my computer..it's licking...when I added it to here..it's not.

I don't know if it's file size or the geometrical size of it once displayed. I just know that I need this avatar to be at most 100x100 for it to fit into the forum. But I want it to work.

right..it's the same with my work forum. I'd really like to use it...do you know if there is any way I can resize it and it will still work?

I downloaded some programs like Advanced GIF Animator and Advanced GIF Compressor but I have no clue how to use them. I've tried and don't know. When I go to the 'help' section..there is none there b/c it's a trial.

gifs that have been forced to resize by forums will not remain animated. either google for instructions on how to use the programs for gifs that you have, or get either jasc animation shop or adobe imageready, they do a great job on gifs.

Thanks for the info.

One of the programs I downloaded is jasc paint shop pro 8..which says it cannot resize gifs (or something like that)...so im guessing jasc animation shop is different...I will look that up.

Thanks.

Thanks a bunch! I did it.

I have another question...when I try to put it up on my other forum...it says the file has to be under 15kb. It fits in here b/c file has to be under 30kb.

Is it possible to change the size of the file?

Our policy here is that your sig and avatar need to have a combined total that is lessthan or equal to 16kb.

It allows you to post bigger ones, but we will ask you to change it they are bigger tahn 16kb.

For your info, sarah4810, you're current avatar with the cat is almost 19 KB. It's about 18.8 KB.

to change the size of the file, you can do one of 2 things:

1. make it smaller
2. reduce the quality of each frame

I believe paint shop pro will allow you to do either of those.
