    Re: custom avatars. I understand that they are limited to 100x100. What is the limit to file size? I have a cool GIF to use but it's 116k.

    Disregard, that last post put me past the magical 10 and I got my answer (6k).

    Yeah.

    That 6K is pretty small, if you ask me. Any way we could bump that up a bit, Eric?

    Anyone have any ideas how to make this GIF small enough to use as an Avatar?

    You could use that pic to make an avatar.

    Yeah, but it would be really cool as a full-motion GIF avatar. The original one that I made had 16 frames to it and it looked spectacular. I'll just have to stick with the one at right for now, which was much harder to make anyways.

    Just found out how to work with animated .gifs.

    Here's one that's sized for GT. It's smaller but with more colors:

    Here's one that's bigger with less colors:

    That's very nice! :cool: I hadn't thought of making it smaller or B&W. I have saved both versions to my hard drive. I'll use them when I need a change. Thanks!
