    Hi anne,

    You can't post an avatar until you become an Orger.

    X amounts of posts+ X amount of time = Orger

    There are lots of free Avatars out there, just google 'free avatars' and peruse the many available until you find the one for you,...If you need further advice pm me ....I'd be glad to help.

    Can't wait to see what you choose!

    Design and make your own or get a 'knowledgable' friend to do one for you. Advantage of first option - you learn something new. Advantage of second option - it might be better than your own. Either way, you win.

    Anneoctober - I think your avatar looks stunning as it is. However, there are many sites out there that have animated gifs - which is all that a moving avatar is. You can make your own using some of the graphics software that is on the market, or get some nice kind orger to do one for you. Tigerjones was great at these things but, sadly, haven't seen them for ages.

    Sassy, I am sure I read somewhere on the .Org, that if you reduce the size of you avatar then it becomes animated.

    Golach has it right. If it is not 80x80 or smaller then it wont be animated.

    Hi Sassy

    The site you want is http://www.gifworks.com/image_editor.html - there you can upload your animated witch file, resize it to the required 80 x 80 pixels and then re-save it at the new size. So long as it's also below the file size (it should be) then when you upload it your witch should be riding along.

    Cheers

    Bob

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing. But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Sassy & Changi - You are a disgrace to the Caithness.org Coven. One is flying around with bits chopped off & the other cannot move at all.

    With the help of our Wizards here, Ricco. Golach, Mr_Me19 & Bobinovich, I hope we can all get airborne by Wednesday

    The strange thing is I have sorted it out but it still doesn't seem to work for Changi.

    I dunno Ricco but the avatar she's using is a different file from the one you've got. Has she definately tried uploading the same version?
