    Default What file format do animated avatars take?

    Hey all.

    I was just wondering, as the question states, what file format do animated avatars take?

    Thanks

    Yup.. animated gif's What is cool is each frame can have a different timing, so unlike a movie you can simply increase the time of one frame if it is to be seen a bit longer than others.

    I use Adobe Photoshop =) (CS5, but CS4 works, and maybe CS3)

    If you have an older photoshop, you just combine it with Adobe Image Ready

    I used photoshop to create an animated avatar, but it saved as a .mp4.

    Can you set photoshop to save animation files as .GIF's ?

    The only way I know how to make gifs is with Gimp...which is indeed free if you want to try it. I haven't figured it out yet. You have to download a separate package to make animated stuff. (GAP - Gimp Animation Package)

    I think it's pretty obvious that the answer is gif. APNGs aren't supported by all browsers and are much bigger files.
