    If you email it to me I can make it the correct size. Or just post the URL of the picture here in this thread and I can send a smaller one back to you to post.

    You can attach it to your next post and I can resize it, or email Thorn it.

    Since Thorn is already doing it, I won't resize it for you, unless you want me to. :p

    I asked her to send it your way Ryan. It was an animated gif and I don't have the software to do them. ;)

    Problem isn't the size in pixels, it's the actual size of the file which is over 100kb. The limit for avatars is 25kb. 10 people load her avatar it would be over a meg in bandwidith, which is easily done. I put the size limit so I don't waste bandwidth.

    I'll see what I can do, I may have to cut the quality down and cut a few frames. It looks like a higher quality 3d image, so I may or may not be able to do it.

    Correct pixel and file size?

    What is the correct pixel and file size? I did my best to find this information, but couldn't find it anywhere.

    For the forum?

    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 65 by 65 pixels or 25.0 KB (whichever is smaller).

    Alright, I got it down to under 25kb. I had to delete a bunch of frames, but I slowed down the rate at which each image changes to make up for it. Tell me what you think. :phat

    I have to agree with Rose, Ryan is God. :) I was thinking you would would have to lessen the pixels per square inch on each frame which would make it look fuzzy. I think it looks great.

    Thanks. Hope astridaku likes it.

    I resized it from 50x45 to 45x40 but it only saved 5kb so I put it back to the original size, plus it didn't look good resized.

    Seems your posts don't show up as last user or in the reply count. Something is wrong with your account..

    Anyways, no problem. Glad to be of help.


    Edit: I updated the database some, and you gained 7 posts for your post count. Hopefully that fixes it. Also ran a user profile debug to try and fix it.
