Gif Avi's hate me
« on: December 08, 2014, 02:10:40 PM »
This is the second time since coming to E that I've tried to load a moving Gif avatar. And I can't do it. Can someone please help me? I would so dearly love to have it.

This is the link. http://25.media.tumblr.com/55944f7c2b4760855ed837ba8e870c85/tumblr_mvaqzcNgqS1rwzrdfo1_400.gif to the picture.

Many thanks to anyone that helps me.

Hi! It looks like the GIF needed cropped/resized. To prevent any further complications, I also uploaded a cropped/resized version on the Elluiki for you! Let me know if this will work:

I was able to crop it with my paint thingy on my computer. But he stops moving. How do I find the picture on Elluiki?

You can't crop gifs on Paint. :-) you need to use a site that allows you to edit, resize, or crop gifs. I used this one to crop and resize your gif.

Save one of the images and upload it to your profile. It should work! If not, let us know. :-)

You could right-click on the one that Blythe or Ariel put up and hit 'Save Image As', and put it on your desktop, or you could choose 'Copy Image Location'.  In the first instance, you can then upload it from the file you saved, and in the second instance, change the selector next to the avatar in your Edit Profile screen to 'Specify avatar by URL' and then paste in the url.

Thank you to everyone. I finally got the avatar loaded.   ;D

What did I do wrong? He's not moving.

*tilts head*  The proportions are different, too.  Did you use the 'from URL' method or the click-save method?

The image appears to have uploaded as a PNG (a static file) rather than a GIF. Double check that you used a GIF as the original source (be it by URL on the wiki or upload) and perhaps have another go?

I did use png. When I uploaded it, I clicked on the image and hit 'save as'.

Do I click on it again and use gif instead of png?

Yep.  You should check for a drop-down menu for the Save As.
