    I want to change my avatar but don't know how or where to find them. There are some brilliant ones on TMP and wondered if anyone can point me in the right direction to any sites.

    Find a pic you want on the net. right click on it and save pic to your computer. Then upload it as you did with your current one!

    Also, try http://www.deviantart.com/ there's some superb images on there.

    I also have a zip file with a load of avatars in it somewhere on my backup drive. Next time I connect to it I shall try to remember to dog them out for you and send them to ya... hows that?

    - nice site here (but watch for popups!)


    sample:- [​IMG]

    post edit:- if you find a picture or *.gif image that is too big to use on tMP, edit the picture here

    I made my own Avatar using the free Multigif tool. You can search for Multigif on google. I draw the Briangle image by hand and then scanned it in. This became the main frame of the animation. I also made a modified copy showing the "blink". Then I just combined the frames into a single GIF file. The finished image stays constant for a few seconds and then you get a double blink.

    The eyes blink when I look at it, or is that just me?

    I managed to find the picture (had to go down to about page 30 something) and have reloaded it. ;)

    Edit : Ooops I was a bit slow, I got distracted. ;)
