Re: Animated Profile GIF

You need:

1. A piece of software that will combine several still pictures into an animation.
2. Several still pictures.
3. I'd reccomend doing a Google Search on "Freeware Animate GIF" and this will give you choice of four or five tools to download.
4. The you just make up the stills and use the tool to combine them into a self running slideshow... it really quite fun and you can have some nice results.

Re: Animated Profile GIF

I dunno...I don't mind a simple gif, but one that's real obnoxious and fast are kind of annoying. Just my opinion. I used to have one and get bashed because of it, but it was tastefully done and wasn't flipping images at 200mph.

Animated Profile GIF

OK guys, go ahead and put Animation in your profile GIF's if you want... just keep it withing reason....

Remember that the Animation should go in your Profile, not your signature!

I tryed a Google search and this is what I got back.

<font color="red"> "Your search - Freeware Animate GIF - did not match any documents.
The alternate search- Freeware Animated GIF - also did not match any documents." </font color>
