I have a couple really cool animated pics I want to use as my avatar. I get them on, they work in my profile but not on my discussions or responses. Can anyone tell me what I need to do so they work? I love all the animated avatars on MyLot and want to find one too! THANKS!!

This has confused a lot of members so far, and it is related to the physical size of the image. Animated gifs that fall within 60 X 60 pixels will appear animated as an avatar at Mylot, whereas larger ones will not. All you need to do is reduce the size and they will work fine. If you have a problem with this then upload them to your My Photos area and let me know which they are, and I shall resize them for you.

Your problem is probably the file format because an animated gif consists of several different still images that are displayed in rotation. This means that you have to reduce the size of each individual image and therefore requires software that can read the file. If you try using a normal image editing program you will only edit the first frame which will not solve the problem. I use Ulead Gif Animator, which will open all the frames and allow me to resize the whole file and even anemd the timing in order to speed up or slow down the animation. I have resized the images that you had and they can be found here: http://www.barrychadwick.plus.com/images/Soccermom1.gif http://www.barrychadwick.plus.com/images/Soccermom2.gif I hope that these are useful to you. If you acquire any more images that you wish to use, then let me know and I shall resize them for you.
