    Thanks

    BIG hat tip to HEWEE for this link in another thread.

    http://com-puterworks.com/Free_Downloads.htm

    This link will get you Paint Shop Pro Version 7.0 with the GIF animator software fort FREE !!!

    I bought this program 3 years ago for $100.00 and it was worth every cent.

    These 2 programs will have you making animated avatars like a pro.

    Your welcome Lan :)
    I also paid for my PSP 7 years ago. I still downloaded this free one here in case it no longer is at the site for free and then I can give it out to others.

    Yes, it is definitely one to hang on to. Great program and intro into graphic manipulation and design.

    Your so right and being free makes it all the better. :)
    Just get it and the patches for it now before it is gone.

    Let not forget even if you wanted to buy PSP that the new version needs a lot more PC power to run the PSP 7 does so this free PSP 7 will run on older PC's.

    Wow, great tool. Now if I could just get my Avatars small enough. The only one I could shrink small enough is my current.

    I think he meant shrink to 50x50 and still look good. I suggest someone make a smiley face that goes from frown to smile to frown again in a fluid motion:)

    I got that program Izme. The picture size is not the problem, it's the SIZE. One of my gifs I made I cant get below 191kb!! See what I mean?

    Aren't you allowed to host it on a third-party server and link to it? If so I reccomend imageshack.us

    I uploaded my avatar to imageshack.us and then tryed to link it in the avatar control panel and TSG still gave me a "Image too Large" Error.

    All well, it's not realy important.


    Edit>These are the two avatars I made that I cant seem to get small enough

    Looks ok with me but I see you have the cool text effect on your name but with the avatar so small you really can not see your name so maybe do away with that part and only use the face and do what ever you want to have effects on for that.
    Hard to see things where your looking at a 50x50 avatar where a 100 or so you can see more detail things.
    Just remember to save what you make in the bigger 200x200 or what ever size you made the .gif with because if you ever what to use it at another site resizing the 50x50 to a bigger size will not look right. Like the avatar I have here I have at other size but they were all resize smaller from a real big one I made.
