Animated gif problem.
I'm a newbie to gimp, only be using it since the weekend, and have hit a problem with an avatar I'm making. I added an animated flag to a jpg picture of a boat that I already use as an avatar. Saved the new picture as an animated gif and all seemed well, the flag fluttered in the breeze when I viewed the animation in gimp and internet explorer. Loaded the avatar onto a forum and it no longer worked. So I guess I did something wrong when I made the gif image, or the breeze had dropped by the time I loaded it up at the forum. Cheers for any help with this.

RE: Animated gif problem.
Thanks for your thoughts ofnuts. I just checked the file in FireFox and it works okay there. It is possible I loaded the wrong file up at the forum - I made a few screw up versions before I got it right - so I will have a look later and check it's the right one.

I know other people at the forum have animated avatars and admin's said that it should work, so I'll also try the rest of your suggestions and see if they sort the problem.

Cheers for your help. If I get the thing working I'll drop a line in here.

Several days later.

Problem solved. It seems that when I uploaded the file it was reduced in size from 100 by 85 pixels to 70 by 59 and changed into a png file which I'm told don't support animation. So I reduced the original file in size, saved it as an animated gif and hey presto it works. Cool.
