Thanks! Tammy, was it you that we were having the problem of the blinkies being white? the background I mean? well, if it was I know why!! the file's background needs to be transparent...besides from cutting really close to the edges we need to erase any trace of white...then instead of saving it as a jpeg and loading it to an animation thing..we have to save it and load it as a photoshop file..that way it stays transparent..
