Understanding of the profile pics
« on: July 25, 2013, 03:43:48 PM »
Hi, I've been trying to get a certain pic with a bit of a video to it that I want to use but I can seem to figure the correct size the pic should be for the avatar.

The pic I want to use is this:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Only the eyes blink if you pay attention to it long enough, but when I try to upload this on ImageShack to Avatar size, it doesn't blink and I can't seem to get my profile to change with either the url or any of the links.

Could I get a bit of help?

It would be very much appreciated.

Hi Talra! I just wanted to let you know that pictures like that are called GIFs. :-)

Although, I could be wrong, but I think I read somewhere that you have to upload GIFs to the Wiki.. or is that just for signature pics in general, BeMi?

Avatar pics are loaded up to the server through your profile, so they're already hosted on Elliquiy in that respect.  Signature images need to be uploaded to the Wiki because if the remote site that they are on goes down for any reason, things like spoilers stop working in the threads.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks, Oni! :-)

Okay, I got that but how do I resize a gif?

Hi, thanks, I found that out shortly before getting your message. And I have tried the Wiki, can't seem to understand how to go about the pics, even for the sig pics.

I understand uploading pics through the profile but the pic that I show to you was uploaded through ImageShack with the resize of 150 x 112 and saved to my images to be uploaded to the profile. I keep getting that it's either not an avatar or it's too large.

If anyone could figure how to get this pic with the eyes still blinking on as a profile pic, please. I've tried all that I could find out about it, 'less I missed something.

Oh and thanks for your replies.

I use Gif Magic for mine.



That is size appropriate for E (though it's 150x150).

Looks like the proportions are the same as the original (as in, not stretched or squished the wrong way).

(I've never tried resizing a GIF before - I made mine from the ground up.)
