Sites for avatars, Esp. animated

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a site with avatars in gif or jpg format?

Have had a good look round using google, but theres a lot of rubbish out there....

P.S esp. animated avatars!

Thanks for that, Max.

:thumbsup:

Found a good GIF, right click and 'save as,' but windows saves it as a BMP with no option to save as a GIF or anything else for that matter!

Any Ideas, anyone:confused:

 

UPDATE: got it resaved as GIF, but lost the animation...:loopy:

Might not be much help to you but Windows XP saved OK for me as a gif.

If you have a paint package that supports animated GIFs (Jasc's Animation Shop or Serif Photoplus), right-click the image then COPY and then paste it into the paint package and then save as an aminated GIF.

Thanks, Alchresearch.

Have downloaded Jascs animation shop, right clicked image, copied and pasted into jascs, as you advise, but on 'save as' no option for save as animated GIF comes up in the menu:confused:

Just save as a GIF in Animation Shop, it will be automatically animated.

 

I've just found out that you can't copy and paste into Animation Shop. But, if you right click your animation and then click "save picture as.." you can then load it up.

 

Try it with Max's animation above, it works ok.

Try going to the website again where the animated GIF is, make a note of the filename, locate your temporary internet files and find the specific GIF file with the matching name, and then copy and paste the file to somewhere else on your drive.

 

PS. Feel free to PM me if you need any help.
