    Thought this might be a nice idea. There's obviously a growing number of long term members, and quite often people aren't sure what to use for a 'tar, or lack the skills/apps to make animated ones. So if you have any you're happy to give up for someone else to use, post 'em in here!

    Remember, they need to be a max of 75x75px and under 20KB.

    Please don't spam the thread with any old gif you happen to have found, avatar sized animated gifs ONLY please :)

    How about one of your v useful guides to creating animated avatars?

    Like do you start big and shrink it down? or work with bigger images to start with? And what do you use to do it?

    I find animated gifs eff'n annoying. Let this thread rot in wasteland hell.

    edit: Oh geez, I must've been in a bad mood when I wrote this. LOL. I figure I have a target on my back ever since.

    Do one for the Mac mini! :D

    For my avatar, I used ImageReady. And a handy dose of alcohol.

    I agree .... Also something about sizer limits etc.... I am sure when searching MR you'll find bits and pieces but a concise guide would be nice.

    Could you do a Powermac G5? I am slowly approaching 500. The Powermac G5 will be the replacement of my 400 Mhz Powermac G4.

    How do you get all the angles on the products? Looks like the QuickTime gallery at Apple.

    Do you take screen shots of every frame and put them into ImageReady?

    With QT Pro you can export a Movie to image sequence, then in ImageReady import a folder as frames, edited it a bit...and bobs your uncle! ;)

    I have a lot of static avatars that I'll be gald to post but I'll wait for that thread when it comes.

    Here's a couple for now. The second one is too big but I'm too lazy to resize it.
