How do some people animate their avatars? Like Nagala, who has a little "film running", for example? I have played around a little with this picture and came up with five different versions that I would like to try out as "the-ever-changing-its-colours-avatar". Maybe it looks cool, maybe it does not. But I don't even know how to test this in the first place. Do I need some elaborate programme here at home to make it work (that I haven't got!) ??? Here are the five little pics. Any ideas any one how to go about it? The idea would be for them to move from Idea1 through Idea5 and starting over again at Idea1. Or maybe from 1 to 5 and 5 to 1? Hmph... don't know. I only have this idea but can't even imagine what it might look like. Edit: And I don't know why I am forever struggling with the size of the fourth photo!?!?!? It is downsized to 100x99, I know. But it shows so much bigger - on Photobucket and here. When I reduce it by 25% further in Photobucket, it appears tiny, almost not to be seen, but posted to here again it is larger than the others. How can that happen? Aargh!
