avatar problems on ocn

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have created a pretty cool avi file that i want to convert into a gif so that i can use it here on OCN. my problem is the avatar file limit is 39.1k and my file no matter what i do is like 400k. i would really hate to not be able to use my gif as it is pretty cool. any help would be great. i purchased a avi to gif program so this could work but i am afraid i wasted 20.00.

Holy balls, that's a huge GIF. You'll just have to cut the size down

Can you not just resize it to below 120x120? it says either or. Like mine is some 55k, but it is below 120x120 and so i could upload it.

Download a trial of Adobe Photoshop CS2 (the last version that came with ImageReady) and use ImageReady to adjust the quality of your GIF in order to get the file size down. In addition to the obvious like shrinking the resolution or removing frames in the animation, you also might want to consider changing the color depth from 32bit to 16bit. The difference is negligible for a forum avatar, but stripping out that color information can save size.

To make it transparent I think you can just erase it or make it the same color as the OCN blue where your avatar is.
