GIF image for an avatar?
 
How do you make a GIF file your avatar. When I upload a GIF file it just freezes at a spot and doesn't move.

I think it may depend on the size file it is.

That's what I thought too, but it uploaded fine and didn't tell me it was too large.

Or maybe Berhard disabled gifs for this forum, which I would applaud, because they can be fairly annoying.

Well, the reason I'd actually think it would be a possibility because I saw other members have GIFs as their avatars.

If it's one you really like, I might be able to fix it for you. I made mine from scratch, lol.

Mine's a .GIF - I made it myself.

Yours may be too big a file...

I have the same issue. The GIF source file for my avatar is here:

http://au.geocities.com/googla007/daggy-drummer.gif

and it's only 50kb and 113px x 120px.

Weird ...

Yes, can be annoying...

...but there are no restriction beside the size (max 100 x 120) and weight: 300 kb - which is much too much anyway..

There are some animated gifts here in this forum as avatars, so i see no problem...

I got a gif to work but it was giving me a headache, so I made it a jpeg.

Toad kindly helped me out (ouch! should I have dobbed him in? :) and it appears I messed up the pixel specs and made it too large (it was only about 50kb).

If the GIF is fun I find the amusement factor greater than the annoyance factor, but I'm not exactly the grumpiest gal in town so I don't get bugged all that easily. At some stage I'll probably replace it but I'll give it a run for a while.

Yes, I agree that animated GIF's can be annoying. For me, the crappy ones are highly annoying and there are approximately one zillion crappy ones on the internet. :-)

Wow, nothing better to do than cry about moving pictures. Like they said, it might not give you an error but the size is too large. Keep reducing and uploading until it works.

Nice Post, keep up the good work

How about using some photo-editing program in which you can resize the image on a limited resolution (85x85 for users, and 100x100 for staff) and then use the proper tool (sharpness, lightning, saturation etc) to edit your picture as you wish. you'll get a nice and sharp picture avatar

I also use Video Avatar to create gifs. The best program!
Also it can resize your gifs)
