    You've helped me before big time, now I'm asking for your help again. I requested a signature on a forum and it's just what I wanted but they have my wrong name (Maggie instead of Peggy),and it's listed as a gif, but I can't pick it up as a gif, this is what I get when I click on it:
    http://content.communities.msn.com/JustGifsTwo/mnames.msnw?Page=12
    I'm the golfer Maggie. Is there any way one of you could change this name and make it into a gif so I can use it? If not able to chAnge the name, could you tell me how to retrieve it as a gif? It's important to know I have an internet appl, similar to a web tv, which has restrictions.
    I'm so hoping someone can help, they assume on this board that everyone knows how to do this and I can't get an answer to my question.

    I didnt think to re-size it since I thought it was to be used elsewhere. If you want to use it here it will have to be re-sized and you will have to wait until you have 100 posts.

    I am absolutely thrilled with you guys. I love them all, but one problem, I can't pick them up as a gif . Can you figure out how I can do this?

    Right click, choose save as, make sure .gif is selected in the file type box.

    This is what I get when I click onto the pic. I remember Mulder had this problem with me last time when Ratboy was helping me. I'm just so pleased that you've taken the time to help me with this, I didn't think I'd be able to use it. The last size by Doyce was great. If you figure out how to do the Peggy gif, maybe I could get the Maggie too. Thanks so very, very much all of you.

    Geoffrey & Buck, my email address is [email protected]
    If you've found out how I can pick this up as a gif, please let me know. I don't have a webtv, have "properties for this page".

    Darn, forgot the webtv thing. My mom has that. How was the other one posted at the golf site? If it has a browse option at that site, then you can use that to link to the url you posted with the gif.

    There's no way I can pick up anything anywhere unless it's in gif or jpeg. I may invest in a full pc sometime after my contract is up but meanwhile I just have to cope.

    I believe Mulder put it on his server for you to link to.
    I will copy it and stick it on geocities for you to link to. Be back after I complete it with the hyperlink.
