I've noticed that CR isnt too friendly with gif.s and butchers them when u set them as an avatar. I was just able to fix one for a member of CR and I am totally willing to fix any others that ppl might want me to. Of course i cant promise them right after the request but i'd be more than happy to fix them for u guys =]

To answer the question how I fix them i figured out that CR moves all the layers of a gif. to the absolute right of the image depending on where the layer's boundaries end and it also stretches it to reach the top and bottom of the area it provides. What I do is resize the gif. so that its width is approx. 200 px and then make every layers boundaries stretch to the image size (with out changing the pic of the layer) To do this I use a editing program called Gimp (not PS). If u want to do it urself and dload Gimp then I can be more specific and tell u the steps but ofcourse I can still do it for u if u host the image and post a direct link =]

I set the Gaara one as my avatar really quick and it came out JUST as the one u posted...the Itachi one looks off to start with so im not gonna bother with that. Did CR mess them up when u posted them or were they like the ones u posted and its only when u set them as an avatar that they get cut off?

6C : I want an animated avatar!
This can be a tricky one. When it comes to animated avatars, some work fine while others look like crap. If you pulled a GIF from another site there is about a 50-50 chance of it working correctly here. The only way to make sure your GIF works perfectly is to make it yourself. The best tool to do this is ImageReady. I have found that nearly ALL the filters in ImageReady cause the GIF to look crappy on CR. So try to avoid those, if you want detailed instructions send killar a PM.
