    Just wondering how the "animated" avatars that I see in the forums are created (Trico and Glyakk are two of the members whose avatars come to mind). Are these GIF's? I'm not the strongest web graphics person so this is the only web graphics standard I'm aware of to do this.

    Thanks in advance and Be Well!!!

    Yes they are animated gifs.. You can make them with programs like Image ready or Fireworks. There are also a number of other smaller cheaper programs that you can use to construct them. But you would be hard pressed to find a free program or service since the algorithem used to construct gifs(LWZ) is licenced and quite expensive.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I have Paint Shop Pro and Fireworks. I'll use the latter if I can find the darn license key and get it installed!

    Be Well.
