SF sig finally fixed, and Betty's dress is now working properly.

It's a shame, though, that I did most of the experimenting and learning on the EF version, then found I couldn't use it. All good, though, I used the same method to finish this one off, and it now appears to be working fine.

Now, a question for the 'boffins'... Is there a (relatively easy, simple?) way to import a GIF into a sig, rather than building the sig around the GIF? GIFs don't seem to like being moved at all, even within their own borders, and either don't work at all, or make the rest of the sig jerk around the screen in time to the GIF.

I only worked out how to do this today, and am doubtless making heaps of blunders, but I do think it looks quite good. I do think I prefer the green a little more than the blue, tho.

Onwards and upwards...

i dont know about adding them to sigs in photoshop, i add them to the sig on a site.
the sig size needs to be 649 x 149 to get it to stay animated as the forum resizes and stops the animation if its 650 x 150.
i recently found this out with northernsouls sig,
here is the online editor.

Please click on the image to view the animation. Note that this isn't intended as a usable sig, merely a test-bed for the GIF experiment.

NB: The original GIF is not my work.
