I think your saving the file as a different type of format.

When you 'Save as' your file, you need to make sure that in the window that pops up, where it shows you to where you want to save your file, that you save it as a '.JPEG' or a '.GIF', most preferably a '.JPEG' file.

You may believe i'm a gullible fool, but look whos gullible now.

Using ms GIF animator, its necessary that you save the file as a GIF image, or the animator cant read it.

Also, the animator will give that error message if you try to add a file that is not in the folder you're looking for it in. Make sure you put all your frames in 1 temp folder (if you save your frames). Make sure the frames are saved as GIF images, and make sure you add the images from the correct folder.

I was just wondering if you could take the pic from my avatar, and if you could make the eye visor flash and glow blue blue and then fade back to normal once, and then if you could make some sparkles of light flash on the armor. Then If you could make my old avatar appear in the upper left hand corner and then if you could have my name appear in smallish letters in the lower left hand part of the picture. thanks! original.gif

hmm.. hailo, i think i know why it doesn't work... you deleted the animation from your gallery after you posted the URL here. when you do that, the URL(or the place where that picture, or animation is at) no longer exists, and therefore the animation cannot be used.

I think that's brilliant Hailo but if I could suggest a change, perhaps freezing it when the name appears for a few seconds would be cool rather than have it disappearing straight away.

Just a thought I hope you don't think I'm being rude...  huh.gif
