  • Can anyone whip up an avatar pic for me?

    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.

                  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!
