Question Can anyone help?

I tried making an animated avatar with the program that I have. The only problem is it won't save on my computer correctly. I was able to email it to myself without any problems, however when I saved it and opened it up it the animation didn't rotate. Strange, I was able to make animated flipbooks with my program before, but that was on my old computer when I had XP. The new(ish) computer I have now has Vista. Is it possible that my program, which btw is Microsoft Digital Pro 9, isn't compatible with it? I've been trying over and over again to make it work and it just won't do it. It's driving me nuts!

Anyway, these are the 4 pics I'd like to use:

Attachment 6872

Attachment 6873

Attachment 6874

Attachment 6875


If anyone could help me, I'd sure appreciate it.

Oops. I almost forgot. If it isn't too much to ask 'd like the display time to be 5 seconds between each frame. Thanks!

I could be wrong but I didn't think you could use an animated (gif) type file as an avatar which might be why it's not working for you. I've only seen them used in the Signatures; but not avatars. Hopefully someone can confirm or deny this?

I actually saw an animated avatar in one of my searches: https://www.chihuahua-people.com/sigg...signature.html

Check out response #3.

That's not so much my problem though. My problem is animated gifs won't save as animated gifs on my computer for some reason, which is really strange to me as I never had this problem when I had XP.

Hmm interesting. When you "Save As" does it give you the option to save it as a .gif? I know for me, I can save something as a Gif but depending where I upload it to it's not always animated. What are you using as your image host? If you said it works when you email it to yourself; just Save As (making sure file format says gif) and then upload it on Tinypic.com (an account is free, but you don't need one.) That's what I use for my animated siggies; and it always works through there.

Yes, it does. Unfortunately I already tried that and it didn't work. It opens as a still picture every time. I use tinypic as well, although I don't see how it's going to do me any good as I still have to upload it from my computer first. Unless there's a way to email it to them I don't see how it's going to work. Maybe I can email it to one of the admins on here and they can upload it on my account for me?

PS I ended up investing about it online and found out the problem. Animated gifs don't work on Vista.

Oh ouch!! Well at least you know now, it's nothing on your end. I still have my outdated XP and love it lol.

If you want, you can email it to me and I'll just put it up on tinypic and give you the Url. Then you'd be able to post it wherever you want since it'll already be uploaded.
