    Animation

    As you can see below my Cowboy Star that I use for my user pic is animated. How do I or can I make my user pic animated? I don't know a whole lot about animation.

    Since it appears you ALREADY have the userpic at the correct size, go into EDIT your Lounge profile and down to the lower-left corner (screenshot). Be sure you first clear the box with your current userpic, make sure the radio-button for userpic is selected, then browse your hard drive for the animated GIF you want to use. Remember, it'll get distorted if it's not the expected size.

    Hi, Cowboy ~

    This is 54x75 - sized for the Lounge without distorting it.

    A couple of points:

    1] If it is 54 x 75, it will distort as the Lounge will resize it to fill the 65 x 75 format.

    2] Maximum size for user pics is 5K.

    Here it is 65x75, but the smallest I can reduce it to is 5 colors which is 5557BT (437BT bigger than the Lounge max of 5120BT). Taking it to 4 colors ruins it altogether.

    Re: Animation

    What program can I use to do the same thing, assuming it can be done to still images?

    Cowboy

    Why don't you try animating your current userpic?? <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    John

    PS And why do we get two Bruce Krymow signatures for the price of one?
    Is it a variant on "Two-bruce Lautrec"??!
    <font face="Script MT Bold"><font color=blue><big><big>John</big></big></font color=blue></font face=script>

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    John ~

    The sig is an anomaly from a small change in the file storing on the server quite a while back - they only occur on a handful of old posts.

    I don't have near the miles in a brothel Henri had.
