I need help! I got an avatar off of a webpage, and saved it, but its not moving anymore! Its frozen on one picture. How do I get it right??
You'll also want to make sure you're saving it as a gif
it won't let me save it as a .gif!
Ok, sorry for the triple post. I got it working. Now its asking me to put it in a host directory? What the heck??
Ok, lol, I post too soon, and I figured it out. It's 100x100 but I can't get it below 6kb!?
Not seeing anything that says how to do that.
got it, a little smaller than I want it, but I guess that's ok. I had to shape it to 50x50
Glad to see that it's working!
Can I use a pic that is in one of my jpg files?
Sure, although you may have to resize it.
110 pixels, the height no greater than 110 pixels, and the file size no more than 6 KB. When you go into your forum info (on the left of this page) it's at the very bottom.
If you have a problem with it being to big, use this link to resize it.
Then save it back to your computer so you can upload it to CC.
Ok I think this is it. It's a bit small though, hard to read.
If you convert it to gif format, you can use the link posted above to resize it. You'll be able to keep it larger in size by using reduce color which will reduce the kb without making it smaller.
Does anyone know where you could get free avatar downloads????
Sure, Google "free animation downloads" and just start looking!
Thanks so much!!
Gail...thanks for the tip on finding avatars. Check out my Kitty!! lol
You're welcome, chrissy736! She's very cute, crisseyann!
I am having a problem trying to upload my avatar.
I get to the point of re-sizing it with the gifworks link but it just doesn't do anything.
Could it be too large to resize.
I'm new at this and it's trial and error. Any help would be appreciated.
Do you mean when you try to load it into this link:
It won't load it? Or is it loading it and when you see the picture it's not changing?
I can load it, but when I try to re-size it nothing happens.
I think it may be way too big anyway. It's 800x600 156KB
It is water lillies and I think when it's re-sized it may look odd. thanks, Karen
I have been trying to upload an avatar from my personal file but it keeps telling me that it is too big, how can I make it fit?
oakay, okay- sounds kinda crazy I know, but i'm guessing that avatar has something to do the images by everyones name?? If yes, how in the world do I get one?
oh if doing this were as much fun as decorating my cakes!! This computer.......................
can't load the avatar
can't find an animated one
can't stand the computer
love reading everyone's posts
To find an avatar, you can do a google search for animated avatar or animated gif.
Several of the members, like myself and Lisa are good at making ones, finding ones, and resizing them.
Your avatar can't be larger than 110x110 pixels and 6KB file size.
www.gifworks.com is a good place for resizing animated gifs.
All right - I've tried several different Tinkerbell files and finally found one that is under 6 KB (my favorite one - an animated one, was almost 40KB! Yikes!)
Thanks for the helpful info! I had never even heard of an avatar until I found this website! I'm not only learning cake decorating stuff but how to be a computer whiz! Ha ha. As if.
I'm glad I found this thread. I've just spent WAY too much time trying to resize one of my pictures. I could get it to the 110x110 okay, but it was still 20 kb. I'll see if it's too small and then maybe go try some of those tricks mention (reducing colors and what not).
It looks great
