    Custom Avatars Are your own creation or an image you have found that you wish to present. If you find an image or create one
    you wish to use, you must shrink it to 50x50 pixels or less and keep it below 20KB in size. Then you can upload it through the Avatar section of your profile.

    Avatars That have motion are actually animated Gif Images.
    They appear on webpages you see. Animated Gifs are a series of similiar pictures put together to resemble motion. Much like a motion picture or a cartoon. If You wish to learn how to work with and create animated gifs there are programs you will have to aquire. If you wish to take an existing animation you find anywhere on the web and use it for your Avatar you can down load it to your computer through the save as function and then go to www.gifworks.com and upload it there to make many changes including resize to 50x50 and save back to your computer for upload for avatar. There is a thread heavy into graphics and talk called rambling discussion in the random discussion area. AZ, Hewee, Buck, and others will help guide you
    if you wish to learn more.

    You have to pay for it, but they have a 15-day trial period... so if you only want to make an avatar and don't plan on using it again, that would work out great for you. You can download it HERE.

    Oh yeah I forgot... if you want to buy it, looks like it runs at $44.95 for the license.

    :D :D Yeah lets cheat'em for making us pay for it... and then you can just download another copy of the trial under a different alias. I know there are free programs out there but can't recall any off the top of my head.
