Try changing the file type and checking the file size. (I believe the limit size for an avie is about 20.7 KiB., someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

I cannot remember how to animate avatars for the life of me, but try reading some of the guides in testing & advertising. (The search function for a page in Internet Explorer & Firefox is Ctrl+f .) If that doesn't say, try searching for it on google. :)

If I owe/ said I would donate you psybucks, please PM me ASAP (preferably a link to the page that I "bought" the item) and I will try to round them up as quickly as possible (of course, after the cash mod is fully functional). Thanks.

GIMP can animate, but if you're looking to just combine pictures, you could use www.iaza.com. It also reduces file size. ;)

I won't correct Crystal, since I don't know the file size either. =P

I've edited your signature. Kindly keep it under 200px total height.

To change avatar filesize, manipulate the compression. JPEGs compress better than PNGs as well.
