How do you get an animation as your avatar?
I think it's because the picture size is small, small, small. It's a really really old gif.
I did a newer Avatar for mine. You can actually make it 200x200 pixels like I did in photoshop. If anyone needs help resizing their avatars or making them, let me know by sending a PM. I wouldn't mind helping out if anyone needs it!
Just making sure...it's okay to use any internet picture for my avatar? even if I don't know any copyright issues?
I am pretty sure you can use any kind of picture for your avatar. I think most the people on MC do...or any other forum for that matter. It's just for your personal use.
I'm useing a pic of me this time around, but no telling how long I will keep it.
Nice Muppet Pic....don't remember that character. Maybe in the next Muppet Movie?
Oh, good. Thanks! Now I just have to choose...
New avatar for me. I went to all the trouble of making the background transparent so he'd look like he was all dynamic and bursting out of the frame, and he ends up in a little white box anyway. Phooey.
I get the impression from earlier posts that animated GIFs won't animate as avatars. If so, phooey. I'd love to 8-bit this image and animate it in the style of the original Move Your Feet video.
You might want to save the file as a .png file and then upload it to see if this works. It works like a .gif file and leaves the background of your avatar transparent.
I think the box is part of the board's format, as it has a blue border. I'm not too worried about that; I could have seen it coming, in fact, if I'd looked closely at the board before making my icon.
I'd rather have GIF animation, but I'm guessing that's a no-go.
What's the new icon size? My Red's all pixely now
Redsonga has a point, I'm going to change my avatar (first time in 2 years, heh) to Puppyduck soon enough but I'd like to know the new size.
All the info for our new forum is here...
Since most info is this thread is no longer relevant. I've started a new Avatar discussion with the updated info in the first post. If you have any further questions, please post them there.
