SweetPea do you have a photobucket account?
Upload the avies there and then copy and paste them as you would a picture.

Kielen - does Gimp have the Adobe ImageReady button, or is it a plugin that I need to download?  I don't have Photoshop, I do have Photodraw, its an old version, and the Gimp.

Thanks!

Hi!  Kielen inspired me to fiddle around with the Gimp, and as I am not very patient ~ LOL ~ I managed to stumble on the way to make an Animated Avatar using the Gimp!!

Step 1 -  Open up the Gimp and make a new picture, size 100 by 100 (or whatever size your website specifies, as each one has different sizes allowed)



 (also, click on Dialogs / Create New Dock / Layers, Channels & Paths  -  so that you can see your layers)

Minimize this New Pic



Step 2 - Import your desired pictures!  (most of you know how to do this next part, for those who don't, please follow along)

Go to File / Open / choose whatever pic you want

Once it's open, go to Tools / Transform Tools / Scale  ~  then scale your pic to the wanted size.



Then go to Edit / Cut and cut pic, then close image without saving

Then go back to your New Pic and choose Edit / Paste  then go to Layer / New Layer and there you go, you've created a layer!

 

Step 3 -  Repeat Step 2 for each added layer

Step 4 - *optional*  you can add any flashy extras to each layer at this stage from you filters bar.  

Step 5 - Now you are ready to make the Avatar!

Go to File / Save   & under 'Select File Type" choose  Gif Image  ~  make sure you give your avatar a cool name and press save

This box will pop up ~ click on the highlighted buttons ~ press Export



Then this box will pop up ~  leave it marked the way I have it, except for the "Delay between frames where unspecified"  Just remember, the higher the number, the slower your frames will change.  Press Save



Step 6 -  Enjoy your new Avatar!!



I hope this helped, and that I didn't confuse you!!
