I have this animated .gif I would like to use as my avatar pic, but I can't figure out how to get it to work. Also it has a white background, I downloaded an editor and tried for about an hour to change its background color before giving up.

The .gif is attached if anyone is interested.

I don't understand, the attached gif file has a transparent background! Just upload it and see what happens...

As you can see, this is what it looks like when I upload it. White background and no animation.

It is not the image then, it is this site not letting you use animated gif's!

Animated GIFs work fine for others...

I see a non-animated gif attached, that has a white background, not a transparent background.

When I click on the attached file it opens up a little window with a white background showing the animation. You guys don't see that?

I'm confused now.

Me too, as I said all I did was save your attached image and open it with adobe fireworks cs4 and bang works a treat with no white background. :confused:

So, is there a way to use the super-cool Guile .gif. Or am I stuck with the angry Bison?

I have uploaded it to my squads website and it works fine, I have used it as my avatar on our site also & it works fine, as soon as you upload it to this site it turns into a non animated white background gif. So I think you are out of luck buddy, unless you can get some helpful admin on here to help you out. Good Luck!

I had to re-size the image to 100x100 or lower. It was just a bit too big. For some reason it would display the image when it was too big, but no animation.

I believe the forums auto-resize the pic when they are too large in pixels or file size, I had the same issue with non-animated .png files getting a white background and being changed to a .jpg (which doesn't support animation).

Mind if I use that for a non-TG forum? Its very nice!

Sorry for bumping this thread but have similar problem. Could you help me with my avatar? Tried as 85x85 with no luck so I extracted the frames, resized (100x100), then re-animated and it just won't show as animated. :row__736:

resized to 100x100, all frames animated, size requirements check. should work just fine if you upload it as your avatar straight from the website.
