    How to use .gif as avatar? I want to know how some member able to use moving avatar..

    another Q, how to resize the .gif avatar properly, because after I resize the .gif file it became picture, instead of as the original moving picture.

    Thanks in advance.

    Same as .jpg I guess.

    Resize with animated gif editor. Not photoshop, paintshop, or windows paint.

    Here, an online free animated gif tool (resize, crop, rotate).

    Like my avatar?

    I use ImageReady. It comes with Photoshop. I can create one for you if you'd like.

    Nah, she just needed me to help her resize.

    Eeyore, if you're reading this, I just emailed them back to you.

    Mike, you use ImageReady? I find that it's less user friendly than Fireworks. It has a bit more tools, but fireworks is so much easier.

    ImageReady allows for more editing, since Fireworks is short of some options. Or I just can't find them. But I really get annoyed with the whole I must deselect all the frames I don't want to appear thing. In Fireworks, I just create what I want each frame to look it. It's a lot speedier.

    There are other requirements, such as writing 5 good reviews for the site.

    The requirements for unique avatar:

    1) You are a moderator
    2) You have written >= 5 reviews
    3) You have >= 500 posts at the forum

    Otherwise, it could be a bug that someone bypassed the system.

    I think xox saw Funn Lim's customised avatar. Funn has less than 500 posts, but she may have contributed more than 5 reviews for the site.

    Hey look. I met requirement #3.

    Anywho, can't any user just go into their control panel and upload their own avatar?

    Go to User CP -> Edit Options -> Change Avatar (at bottom of page) -> Browse -> Find a picture -> Upload

    Ta-da. Your very own custom avatar without the need of 500 posts. Or is the only reason I can do this is because I have 500 posts?
    I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.
