I cant seem to get my animated gif to stay animated when I try to change my avatar. I am using photobucket and it is saved as animated. Any suggestions?

Anyone?

When you save your gif make sure it is set to loop

Post the URL of the GIF file if that doesn't work and I'll check it out

For starters, that URL doesn't work for me.

That URL is messed but here is the image:

The problem is that it was saved as a single-frame GIF so the animation data is lost. If you can find it again online, copy the URL and either paste it here or upload it to your photobucket as-is

Ok I think I figured out the problem. When I try to resize it to fit is when it saves as a single animated pic. This is the direct link to the correct gif that is not resized yet and still animated......http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa215/rigs420/aaa.gif



Just want you to know I really appreciate it Smoogy! Yet another reason this forum and its members blow every other out of the water. Thanks!

Hey, I just realized my decepticon pic that was next to my av is gone, what happened? It's probably been gone for a while and I just didn't notice it.

How do you even use those second av pics? I've also noticed some people seem to be able to bypass the 175px/175KB max for avatars

An admin can enter image code into the user title space.

I haven't really seen anyone with avs above 175x175, but that'd have to be set by a mod or admin.

^What are you talking about?

I used to have a decepticon logo as my second av and it is gone now.

I was gonna start a new thread, but this seems an appropriate place to ask since it was brought up.

Can the space alloted for the AVs just be increased for all users? I keep trying to put in some cool AVs (imo- lol) and am constantly told "the remote file is too large". This is really limiting. Is there a reason for that? Just wondering.

Av limit is 175 x 175.
Yeah- and I was wondering if it was possible to increase that for regular users. Or were you saying that like "Fuck off- that's the limit and accept it!" lol :grinsmile1:

Or were you saying that like "Fuck off- that's the limit and accept it!" lol :grinsmile1:Try using a program called Irfan View in order to resize or convert the file extension to whatever you want it to be. It's what I did for my pirate picture. I fucking love it for that.

I don't think dimension is the problem. he's trying to upload animated files, so his limitation is probably filesize.
