but dunno, alot of gifs do that on Cr and I've wondered what the problem is but I have no clue.

Here's your solution:

Remove the background and make it something simple like white and only that. Then bold the colors on Naruto's outfit to one version of it. Like the grey just grey not fuzzy. Orange just orange, etc.

CR has a problem while re-sizing complex .gif images. So just use an editing program to edit the original (MSpaint removes animation in .gif files. Don't use that.) and fix it up as I said. It'll work then.

the only three image files that can process animation is .gif, .swf, and .flv. Shockwave flash and flash video aren't supported by avatar uploads. So just stick with .gif.

Have background knowledge before trying to help someone.


arghh that sounds really hard, you wouldnt mind doin it for me would you? id be really gratefull if you did, but if you dont then fair enough.

um...I dont a lot of graphic design myself so I can try to edit it but i dont use photoshop, i use a program called Gimp so idk how itll turn out...ill give it a shot tho =] Howeve, its CR resizing the gif/ I believe so if I resize the gif. it'll probably get distorted and look akward and even if I do CR will still probably butcher it but w/e...here i go =]

ok, bad news...I resized the avatar and it worked fine in Gimp but then I set it as my avatar here really quickly and it still got messed up. It seems that CR is moving all the layers to the right side of the image so ima try to set all the layers to the image boundaries and save it again and see how that works...if that doesnt work idk what else to do XD
