I d/l IrfanView to play with gif's and resize for avitars. My problem is with resizing, the help file says to click image and then resize/resample,but, everything except "create new image", "Effects",: Swap Colors", and "Palette" are greyed out ! Is there a setting I am missing to enable resize / resample ? I am sure it's obvious, just not to me :)...Rhett

That is my problem Savvy, almost everything in the Image tab is greyed out and unuseable, including the resize option ! perhaps the image I am using is protected some how, still playing with it though , will see what happens...thanks...Rhett

sound to me like you don't have a image open yet

click file then open then choose a picture and open it.. that should activate the resize option as well as the others under the image tab

I have the image in the window, and the animation is working, but when I click image, no go, perhaps I installed the program wrong, I will see if I can get a screenshot and post it here...Rhett

Rhett I got the same thing on the one jpg I opened... let me see if they all are that way.


Nope... I just opened my photo & its fine with it. Must be the style that ones in.
If it was animated you can't change it.

try opening the image in paint & change its extension

I must have misunderstood, I thought you could resize gif's (animated) to get a avitar small enough to post, There must be a way as there are several floating around at the site, once again, :) Thanks...Rhett

I haven't been able to confirm it in writing... but it doesn't appear that you can resize Annimations in Irfranview :(

Edit... post it full size and I'll size it for you
