Animated GIF as Profile Picture? Tags: Tom's Hardware Last response: June 12, 2012 1:52 AM in Forum Feedback Share amuffin June 4, 2012 3:12:42 AM How do I make my profile pic an animated GIF? I uploaded an animated GIF, but it doesn't move. This is the one I'm trying to use: More about : animated gif profile picture Pyree June 4, 2012 10:25:34 AM The file size is too large for a start. m 0 l tigsounds June 4, 2012 3:56:52 PM 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. m 0 l Related resources Allow Animated GIFs as Profile Pics Please! - Forum Converting .mov clip to animated .gif - Forum What size should the profile picture be? - Forum Is it illegal to use a part of a logo as steam profile picture? - Forum Can't change my profile picture on Tomhardware. - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I like Banana-Bread muffins with black walnuts (yuummmmm) Send a dozen and we're even. Edit: Awwww..... just checked with Customs and they said that can't be sent into the country, (if already baked? what the...?) I'll look up some smugglers. m 0 l amuffin June 12, 2012 1:52:06 AM tigsounds said:Ok Muffin king.. It works. I like Banana-Bread muffins with black walnuts (yuummmmm) Send a dozen and we're even.

Too bad I'm allergic to tree nuts I heard banana-nut muffins were great, but I can't eat them. I'll be sticking with my personal favorite, blueberry m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
