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.
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!
Just because everyone does something does not mean that it is right to do.
