I just tried resizing an animated gif in Paint. Then when I saved the file, it was no longer animated. It was just a gif of the 1st frame in the animation.You can't just use Paint? That's what I did unless I did something wrong.
Yeah, sorry about that. I kinda messed around with the photo a bit on photobucket.I just tried resizing an animated gif in Paint. Then when I saved the file, it was no longer animated. It was just a gif of the 1st frame in the animation.
Are you sure the file is still animated after you save it from Paint? The file currently linked to in post #15 is not.
Hi wavering,I too am getting the message that I cannot have an animated avator. The engine (vBulletin) that powers this forum is used elsewhere and I seem to remember having the same problem on another forum (Xtreme VB)
I think maybe there is a restriction that animated avators are only allowed if you have made a certain number of posts? Anybody know?
Sorry, I do not understand! When you say "set Avatars" what does that mean? Do you mean "HAVE Avatars"? Or did you mean to say "have ANIMATED avatars"?Only contributing members or staff (Mentors, Administrators, Homework Helpers and Science Advisers) can set Avatars.
yeah, the jpg standard doesn't support animation AFAIK. what i referred to above is not converting the file, just changing the extension(renaming it). my browser seems to recognize and play gifs even when they are mis-named.I tried converting my .gif to a .jpg, but I ended up with a series of images rather than a single animated one.
