    I've made a bunch of animted gifs that I want to use for a forum signature. I'm trying to fit as many as I can. There's a 300 letter limit for sigs on the site, so at most I can fit 5 videos before I run out of room. I use Imageshack.org for smaller animated images, dumpafile.com for larger ones usually. The URL's of the hosted images take up a lot of space, when there's a letter limit for the sigs.

    I want to fit more. I was thinking, is it possible to merge them into one image? So that I put several beside eachother, both with their own separate moving animations, but so that it's made as one image. That way when I host it, I can host 2 or 3 at once as one single image. Then for 2 or 3 animated images, I'll only have one URL to enter in the site. I could fit twice as many of these.

    Anyone know how? Would ImageReady be the program to use/how can I do it?

    Wow. You're really looking to annoy other forum members, eh?

    ImageReady CS is your ticket. The color palette of the animated GIFs might take a hit. Be prepared for lower quality.

    I'll see what I can do.
