    Well done Mr.P....and thank's so much !!

    This kind of explanation has been overdue...never could quite find the right answers to this particular matter.

    And it sure will help everyone out, that likes to show their avatar, that resembles them. :)


    Again, thank's for taking your time to explain all this, my friend ! :-*

    Unfortunately, there are not a lot of free animated GIF editors, and the really quality animation programs can be expensive.

    This site provides a fairly simple but usable interface to edit animated GIFs, at least in basic terms:

    Hi kareldjag, ;)

    Post the Avatar you would like to use as an attachment and I'll reduce it for you.

    As for a program to edit animated GIFs ... JASC Paintshop Pro (payware) , comes with an Animation Workshop thats very easy to use.

    HTH,

    Steve

    Ps. PM the link to the post so I don't miss it. ;)

    I've used it several times, but not to make anything from scratch. I just use it for simple things like a quick resizing of an animated GIF (say it's 85x73 and you want it 60x51 to fit as an avatar), or a color change or smart crop (cutting unused border space around an animation).

    It does fairly well on these functions. The resizing isn't bad provided you aren't resizing from too big an original, and the original image is high quality and not "busy" as you said above. As I say, it's pretty basic.
