oddly when I size it down, it boxes together  but somebody might have a program that will resize it and doesnt ......in the meantime I tried this one to see if you like it.......



ohhhhhh this one is looking very good!! very close to original!

Isnt that strange how it boxes together?? why does it do that?

It did that to me as soon as i tried to remove even one frame..... perhaps barman or someone else can explain that.

You have truely been a saint! and so patient with this! thank you brigid I really really appreciate how kind and sweet you are to work on this for me!

isnt that weird??? it goes back into a "block".. I would really like to know why it does that?

and yes I am quite happy with your latest attempt.... it is pretty close to the original... if someone else can come closer that would be great.... but this is very nice as is.... THANK YOU!

Well it would be nice to understand that.

And i would love to keep the original avatar if all it needs is fewer pixels to accomplish that.... like 95x95 or whatever..... but just like you experienced as soon as i try to alter down like that.... it turns into a block.

sheesh! LOL!

Maybe barman or someone can fix that and explain why it's happening.

Well, I think it's more than about time to add wabbit and sayntbrigid to the animators list in the first post.

Welcome aboard guys  thumbsup.gif

Edit: I can answer your block probem/question but I can't solve it as such, well, I can but so can you really.

What's happening is you've got an avatar of 115 x 115 pixels shrinking down to 100 x 100. A pixel is a block of colour, a teeny tiny block of colour. The smallest block of colour your monitor can display.

So when you shrink something from 115 pixels down to 100, the computer has to pick out 15 pixels that will disappear. (actually technically it removes 3225 pixels but that doesn't really matter, if you want me to explain why then I can, but that will take longer).

What I'm trying to say in this rather tedious and long winded way, is that the computer picked out the little white lines in the avatar as the pixels to disappear, as it deemed them to be the least important. The only way to get them back that I can see is to draw them in again AFTER the avatar has been compressed.

Hope that helps people  wacko.gif

great job on both avvies, Saynt!  thumbsup.gif

I tried my hand at CatOutaHell's avvy and was successful in making it 95X95 but the file somehow grew to 16KB (?!?!) [attachmentid=20291]

to make it, I used 2 programs I've found on the net (free ones) called "giffy" and "unfreeze" with the help of Animation Shop. I opened your cool animation in Animation Shop, resized them to 95X95 pixels, saved the frames as .bmp files and opened each frame in "giffy" and made them "gif files" (I did this because when I saved frames as .gif files from Animation Shop, the colours were way off), then opened them in my "unfreeze" program and created the animated file with that program.

I have no idea why after resizing your animation from 99X99 pixels to 95X95 pixels, it grew to 16KB tho  disgust.gif
