As mentioned earlier by Kari, he needs an animated avatar based on his images. So, i decided to give it a try. Below are my samples. There are 3 of them.

Thanks. Two first ones are a bit too 'restless', TBH. Tried the third one, was told 'remote file is too large' to used as an avatar, when using the url. When saving and uploading, it does not rotate.

Guys, I'm the newbiest of all n00bs when it comes to GFX. I can see the GIF is not enough, I also need help in how to use / upload it.

Kari;

Your gif file is attached:

Attachment 59338

The images rotate 1 sec apart

I did my best to align your face in each image ...

I knew there will be a problem uploading avatar no.2 and 3 cause the file size exceeds the forum limit. A lot of animation going on on those two that's why. If only you had choose no.1. The animation will appear on your avatar. Cheers.

Edit - Adjusted the display time animation on avatar no.1.

Now if you want to change the speed to suit you:

Attachment 59339

You would open your gif file, then 1) select the Image tab, 2) select all tab, 3) 100= 1 sec, 200= 2 sec, etc, and 4) is save (use the multiple disc tab to "save as" a different file name).

Cheers mate!

iseeuu, I went to CP > Edit avatar. Copied the image URL from your post, pasted it and saved but it was not rotating. OK, next step was to save it and upload. Still not rotating.

What am I doing wrong?

The file dimension is too big. The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 48.8 KB (whichever is smaller).

I think what others are doing, as the file requirements for the Avatar are what they are, is post the image someplace like "Image Shack" and then link to there?

That's what I tried, in my logic the image URL from your post should work: https://www.sevenforums.com/attachmen...atar_01sec.gif

I'll play with it tomorrow.

Thank you.
