OK, your plea inspired me..... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I morphed a maple leaf with a gold and white tiger, then extracted the frames that looked best to me. I can send the complete renders of the .gif's, they vary from 5 to 25 frames, but the actual morph .gif would exceed the avatar KB limits. Here are the ones I thought turned out the best. If you don't end up using them, it's ok, I had fun learning to do it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Sorry, I didn't know you needed .jpg.........

A useful program for picture conversion, resizing, cropping and such is Irfanview. It can be found at tucows.com

These may not be what your looking for, so any hints would help get the look you want. There are much better artists out there with more powerful utilities than I have. The ones I'm using are all freeware, but they seem to get the job done. I would've used a red maple leaf, but the effect had the leaf looking like a checkerboard instead of smoothly blending.

Your picture storage site seems a little flakey today. Take out the , and just paste the URL. I had to right-click and "Show Picture" on your sig to see it 90% of the time right now. You might want to try Photobucket.

Open your pic in irfanview, and either go to Image and Resize/Resample, or hit Ctrl R. This will bring up the menu you need. Your sig pic is not too big, but it contains too many Kb. Either shrink it, or try to reduce its weight with perhaps a bit less color depth, then remember to Save As to keep the changes. I normally Save As a different filename, so I still have the origianal.

I played around with it, and it looks like to get what you need, ur gonna have to shrink it.... to keep the action, and lose the wasted space, try cropping it, leaving only the important part, on top of reducing the color depth, and shrinking it.

Quite hefty pic, for being so small. What have you been feeding it? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif This is what I came up with....

I signed up for a free account at Photobucket. So far the pictures show up almost 99% of the time.

Thanks again Cajun.

You're welcome, m8. I had fun learning how to do it. And if that wasn't what you had in mind, it's no problem. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Type in avatar in a search engine, and there are free sites all over that have avatars of all kinds, and with irfanview, it's easy to resize if you need to. That tiger started out as 100 X 100, and the syrup was almost as big as your sig. Have fun, good luck, and
