How to create a GIF file for my avatar?

Hello forum friends,

Is there someone out there in computer land that knows how to create an animated gif file for my avatar. I took very still frame photos of my slide opening and closing. I thought it would be fun to crop the Airstream down to size and show the slide moving... however im too dumb to do it myself.

Thanks Vinnie

I see two problems, you have to be sure the board will let you post an animated gif, I did mine several years ago and the rules may have changed. The other problem will be file size. I did mine my capturing frames as I added states and sill had to work the file down. You may have to cut out just the section of the photo that shows slide movement and add that area back frame by frame. I did mine using PD software but don't even remember the software, it wasn't hard just exacting.

Good Luck

Hello Jim,

Thanks for the info. I am not sure of the rules when it comes to this type of application. I will have to inquire. Either way its a fun thing if even for my computer desktop. I figured out a program and have been moving the pictures but the size is so big Im not really able to view other than the slide movement.
I will keep playing with it.

Thanks Jim

Animated avatars are not allowed on AIR forums. We had them in the past, but some of them caused problems, and their usage was discontinued. There is still a handful of them grandfathered in, but as those avatars are changed, they will not be allowed, either.

I have been making .gif files for years using Broderbund Screen Shot Deluxe 6.0

I think Broderbund was bought by someone, can't think who, but I would think there must be several inexpensive or free programs out there somewhere that will do the job.

There has been no recent change that I am aware of. Supporting members may upload animated avatar images. Years ago when this change was made there were a few animated images in place already and it's possible that a few remain. One thisng that has changed is that members can now opt out of displaying their supporting member status and many have. Those accounts till retain the perks of the upgrade however

The plot thickens..... I Think ..just think that picasa photo has a tool that can make a gif if you know the right moves. And picasa is free and you can keep all your photos stored online for that matter. I will go try it here in a minute and show you...or THINK I will show you if it works for me.
