    No... only links to them

    nothing different about making an avatar than any other image except that most are limited size wise...

    I assume you might mean an Animated Avatar.

    Never found a Tutorial .. but poking around and scratching my head … I found ...
    In Photoshop .. It starts with making the individual frames in layers.
    Then switch to "Edit in Image Ready" ....
    Make and edit the time line then save as an Optimized gif.

    Here ... I used the warp tool to wiggle the fingers in three different layers.
    Since the timing was going to be the same for all frames .. I opened the Animation window in Photoshop … Made the animation .. then “saved for web”
    The saved image will then be animated.

    You should be able to open this gif in Image Ready .. then you'll get the three frames as Layers.
    Basically the same as my original psd file.

    if you know how to make an animated gif you already know. The only real challenge is making something small enough to conform to the forum rules you want the avatar for.

    I use photoshop 6 myself (can't afford to upgrade) but a site I use just to mess around with tutorials you might find interesting is
