    I want to use a custom avatar but it says it's too big. I like it cause it's what I love, snowmobiling, and it's animated. Can anyone help to resize it while keeping it animated, I tried and cannot.

    Hi Robbie,

    The image has way too many frames (is too long in length).

    I even tried shortening it to just then end, but it was still too big.

    One can reduce the resolution of the origional gif, but you need to goto maybe three frames. Use three of the most effective frames to show action and make the compilation from those frames.

    Or choose one action frame with the most dynamic presentation as your Avatar.
