  • Animated avatars. How to?

    The avatars are a great way to personalise your profile. You are able to use animated .gif files also.
    There is however a size limit and you may wish to resize them so you can use them on this site. First find a picture of file you would like to use and save it to your computer.

    Now here is a webpage which lets you load you animated gifs so you can modify/ resize them.
    http://www.gifworks.com/image_editor.html
    choose file, open, browse to your file, upload.
    then resize to say around 60 -70 pixels wide. Make sure you keep the size below 19.5KB.
    save and all is done.

      I also found it quicker to just right click the pic once resized and choose "save picture as" from my internet explorer. Rather than the file, save as etc

                No - still can't upload animated avatar...

                Whitt kindly resized my avatar file so that it fits the Proptalk permissable file size. But, no luck. I still get the error message: "You may not upload animate avatars"
                Anyone with suggestions?
                cheers
