I don't wanna hi-jack Stephanie's thread so I created this thread for animated avatars.
@gregrocker , here is your request.
Hope this will do...
Creating animated avatar is easy. Anyone can do it online for FREE. The only tricky part is creating the individual layers that will be stitched together to create the animated effect. The other tricky part is making sure that the file size complies with the forum requirement to make it work. For that, I use Photoshop.
Anyone who wants to ride the animated avatar bandwagon, just give me a shout. I will only work on your existing avatar so you have to upload your own avatar first and then I will take care of the rest.
