    Hey MR,

    I need a little favor, because I don't know how to do it myself... if anyone has a spare 10 minutes. I have 10 Madonna album cover images that are all about the same size (very close to 200x200... maybe 2 pixels off on each) and I want to make them into an animated graphic that my Nokia 6236i can play as a background. I was wondering, if someone had time to convert them to 128x128 and put them all together in the order I give them to you in while preserving decent quality... is anyone able to do this? I would really appreciate it if someone could. In fact, if you could also make me an MR avatar version in 75x75 that won't exceed the kb level, that would be amazing too. If you're willing to do it, please tell me so I can send the images over.

    Thanks,

    Sam

    So 128x128 for your phone and then you want a 75x75 avatar using the same images?

    I might be able to do it if you wanna zip me over the images.

    Done with the 75x75 graphic for MR (although it's twice the kb limit....dunno how to fix that):

    Oh. My. God. It looks absolutely UNBELIEVABLE on my phone. Thank you SO much.

    And thanks to the others who offered to help. Anyone know how to fix the KB issue on the avatar version?

    I had problems making 75x75 px Avatars in Photoshop.

    The solution was instead of using "Save As..." use the "Save for Web..." option instead. I believe the web version doesn't include a high res preview, probably other non-essential data stripped out too.

    My current avatar wouldn't go below 40kb. With the same compression using the 'Save for Web' option I got it down to 4kb!

    Thanks so much for trying, but it ends up looking really blah. Maybe I should limit the av version to the ones I really love instead of using all ten. Would that make a diff?

    i assume it would--probably if you limited it to 6 or 7 it'd look better. of course, there may be someone out there who could get it to look good with 10! :p :eek:

    Okay, I have new originals, that might help a little. There are ten files in this zip... numbered albums. The ones I really like the art for are:

    02, 03, 06, 07, 10

    Oh yeah, the zip. Hah. http://starbuckssam.com/madge.zip

    Not sure how you did them, but the second one is clearly the better one. Thank you so much.
