Title: Question about my avatar
Post by: Andrew on April 05, 2006, 06:54:48 PM
Ok, so my avatar is supposed to change pictures every few seconds to a different character from Wicked.  But when I saved it to my pictures and uploaded it, it is only stuck on Glinda.  So how can I get it so that the picture changes? Any help would be appreciated.

ETA: Yes I did.  Is it supposed to be saved as that or is it supposed to be saved as something else?

Did you upload it from your computer? or did you put it on a webpage like photobucket first and then linked back to it?

I'm not positive but if he saved it to his computer then uploaded it, it would not work as animated but as a still picture instead like what is being displayed. get what I mean? terrible at explaining computer stuff LOL

EXACTLY!

Andrew...photobucket is free and really easy.

If you need any help, let me know. OR...if you don't want to mess with it, I'll host it for you if you'd like.

gifs do not have to be animated, but they can be.
If you try to edit it using something like photoshop and even do nothing more than resize it, you will lose the animation.

The other thing to watch is it could be your browser. If you are using MSIE, check TOOLS->OPTIONS->multimedia there is a checkbox for "play animations in web pages". If it is not checked, it will not be animated. Then again you probably would have noticed that NOTHING is animated...

Andrew, she is a pretty dog, but she looks squished.  Here's another one resized to 100 by 100.

Andrew, is lady a Mal or Mal mix?  For some reason I've always pictured her as a pointer... (too much Susan Conant, I guess...) ~:~:~:

Andrew, is lady a Mal or Mal mix?  For some reason I've always pictured her as a pointer... (too much Susan Conant, I guess...) ~:~:~:

neither, she is a husky corgi mix.  If she was to stand she would be no more higher than she lying down in the picture.  She looks more like a Pembroke at times, especially when she pricks her ears up.  Someone on here suggested that she could be a dwarfed husky, but if you really look at her, she looks like both. She howls like a husky and barks like a corgi( which is what she sounds like when she barks). I have to find the link on here telling more about her. 

ETA: Here ya'll go.  BTW, she's thirteen or fourteen now.  http://dogaddicts.com/smf/index.php?topic=11606.0

 ~_~@ }:+-+:{  Wellll, I don't know what happened.

Basically it just says that we got her from a shelter when she was nine years old.  She was there because we assume her older owner went into a retirement home and her family didn't want her.  She was there for a month before my mom saw her.  She is pretty much my mom's dog in the way she follows her around constantly, because when we first got her mom would pretty much take care of her( I have always helped though) and even before that she just kinda took to her. Essentially, me and my mother are the ones she comes to to be fed or let out most of the time.  She likes me and everyone else, but she is mom's dog, and nothing you can do will change her mind.

Sarah would like it!  LOL!  We now have the soundtrack and easy piano music, for Wicked!

You guys should go see it.  There's one song that reveals to much plot line that won't be in the piano music or the soundtrack.  It's my favorite song called ``The Wicked Witch of The East.''
