Not without clicking on it, There must be a way though because there's alot of animated avatars.

Have you tried it as your sig to see if it works that way?

File size @ 570kb is too big for W7F
It would help to attach the psd ..
Maybe I can see where to Compress it ..
But I have a hunch it can't be compressed far enough.

Lesson #2 .. Knowing what really increases the file size beyond reason
Too many frames will do it every time

Attaching the psd .... so it would be of no work ?
Maybe ... but I am not afraid of failures . I know that I will be able to make good animations one day

Please see if there is any way to make it work :)

Cut the size down to 600x100 pixels .. Set the gif colors to 64 ..
gets the attached @ 229KB
Reducing the # of frames may let you increase the pixel size.

I was hoping your psd would have the frame (border) on a separate layer ..
I might have been able to perform better resizing surgery

Wonderful, Dr noyb
Please give me some tips about animation. How large it should be , how much frames it should contain, and if I reach out of size... I should I plan to resize it?

As a learner, thease tips will help me to learn better
Thanks a lot

I don't know any "Rules" ..
Other than when there's a file size restriction .. Use the KISS principal

Keep the frame count down .. Use a simple color scheme ..
(16 million color photographs in every fame are killers)

You're going to have to Play a lot to get a "Feel"
You'll know if you're going to be in trouble if it's really "Busy"
