    How do you get the avatar to move? (Like mad as mist and snow) It runs like a loop, is it a mpeg? Can you use any jpeg to accomplish the this? I'm interested in changing a clan image.

    It is very important to know exact size of said clan logo. (Width150xHeight60)

    You need to make or have a .gif file (animated) and PROPER SIZE.

    If you let RHP resize to fit, the image will no longer move and all you see is first or last(?) frame of given animated logo.

    Any help needed, ask.

    I use Paintshop Pro found at Jasc.com My understanding is you still get a version of 60 day use. Do Not bother with the 60 day trial if you don't plan to learn it... get it when you're ready to toy with it.

    I purchased it some 4-5 years ago, the cost of 2 or 3 vid games and use it almost every day.

    Hey thanks, I do have photoshop, I'll start there, then work the dimensions. Not sure about the motion, I was going to try to get the thing to spin, or assimilate spinning.

    Knowing is half the battle.

    Jasc's PaintShop (older versions) can be downloaded free at www.oldversion.com. I find V5 is fine for preparing avatars from just about any source.

    oh this is excellent.

    I actually bought v5 but have long since lost my discs.

    I've been using gimp, but it can be hard to work with.
