    shooting av.gif My current av is a real simple animation. It only shows the first image when I attach it as my av. It is a .gif format. I know virtually nothing about animation (obviously). Any idea what I am doing wrong? It's only two images. I made it on Easy Gif Animator and it is 400 x 392 px, 149KB.

    I resized, and optimized it. Should work now.

    Can I talk you into resizing this one? It must be too large as well.

    Thanks!. Nunz beat you to it by mere seconds. I'm really bad at these graphical type situations so I'll take all the help I can get.

    For anyone that needs it, this site works great for me. For the AV gifs to work here, they need to be resized to around 130-145 high and wide. And adjust the sizes depending on if the gif is wider, taller, or just square.

    I was using that site to make it work, but on the av page it says make sure to use a pic 200x200, so I was trying to keep it as close to that as possible but still small enough to upload.

    Thanks for the sizing heads up.

    Many of my gifs worked fine a few years ago, then something changed in the forum and they all stopped. Even after resizing to 200X200, they still wouldn't work here. After a hundred tests, I finally got that range of 130 to no bigger then 145 to work fine here, so I stick with those bench marks.
