Subject:Animated icons....
Time:04:05 pm

Can anyone tell me how to make/load an animated icon?  I've seen them all over the place but can't figure out how to animate something that meets the requirements of the userpics being jpg or similar.  I admit I'm a moron with these things, but I can usually pick up on them quickly.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

There are really good tutorials at icon_tutorial You can hunt through their archives and find tutorials that are done for your Animation programme (whether Animation Shop - for PSP, or Image Ready for Photo Shop or some other).

Generally, if you want one of those very smooth mini-movie type ones you need to keep the moving part a fair bit smaller than the 100x100 icon size. But if you want a normal one with less number of frames it can be 100x100. The number of frames can vary and you need to play around to keep it under LJ sizes.

Sorry I'm off to work now but I'll help more later if I can.

I can never seem to find these tutorials. But now that I look at your post again I see it's a community not a help item under LJ. For now I'm just playing with the normal changing scenes one. But it's good info regarding the others. Thanks so much!

I found it all pretty confusing myself, at first and I still haven't mastered the making of animated icons yet.

Just for later, if you get serious, here's the list of memories at icon_tutorial. Just have a fish around in animation and animation shop.
