i have noticed some people use animated avatars.  i guess they are .gif files.  unfortunately all of mine are over the 50kb limit.  most of mine are from 100 - 300kb.  how are you that use an animated avatar getting them so small in size?

Shorter length sequences when making a animated picture.

Normally you can just search the google, but it will be hard to get the special avatars that no-one exept you got.

what soft for animation do you use? For example in photoshop you can adjust every element (its size,quality,) you are using in your animation, adjust your animation weight/size, quality, etc, so if its not very difficult 50kb would be enough

i went and got GIMP.  i use ctrl L to get to the layered screen.  i delete a few frames, but still can not get it down to the 50kb allowed.  i already have my animated gifs, it is just they are all to big.

i have searched for how to, but all i get is how to upload animated avatars to facebook, myspace, etc.

  yes, i have the animated gif already.  the problem is that it is to big, 102kb.  it seems we are only allowed 50kb.  i want to know if there is a way to shrink it, like converting a .bmp to a .jpeg.

i would glady PM you, but after spending half an hour looking for the PM button, i have failed to find it.  i have look in......

my profile
my settings
manage friends
managed ignored users
resent status updates
about me
topics
posts

seems it is hidden from plain view.  tell me how to PM you and i will.

thanx again for the help
