  1. The file size is too large for a start.
  2. I see your file has 40 frames, 550x400 pixels and is 336K in file size.

    The image size cannot be larger than 85x85 pixels or 15K in file size.

    Mine has only 3 frames and comes in at 85x85 and is 14.7K, so it's about as complicated as it can be.

    Adobe ImageReady is your friend when developing animated gifs.


  3. Here ya go, it's less than 15KB so it should work.

    Right-Click and select "Save link as"...

    Store and then upload to your profile at Toms and let's hope for the best.


    I took a bit of creative license by having him strike his wand(?) to make the candy swirl show up. Hope it works, and hope you like it.

  4. Thanks tigs!!! :D

    Ok Muffin king.. It works. :)    I like Banana-Bread muffins with black walnuts (yuummmmm) Send a dozen and we're even. :D


    Edit: Awwww..... just checked with Customs and they said that can't be sent into the country, (if already baked? what the...?) :cry: I'll look up some smugglers. :heink:

    Too bad I'm allergic to tree nuts :cry: I heard banana-nut muffins were great, but I can't eat them. I'll be sticking with my personal favorite, blueberry :sol:
