I see so many profiles with funky GIF animations as pictures, I just want to ask - where'd you guys get them from? I tried searching the internets, but it wasn't of much use:( Also, most are too big - over 100kb.
Help? I want my profile to look cool too:D
thanks

I'm pretty sure most .gifs are found on tumblr. But I can't say for sure.

Also, the size limit doesn't matter! If you just use the [img] tags, then you can upload a pic of any size. I'll just use an image taken from Google as an example...

Code: Select all
[img]http://www.animalwallpapers.in/images/wallpapers/baby_tigers-965390.jpeg[/img]


Becomes:

Image

The principle is: put the url of the image you want to use (you can isolate it by right-clicking and selecting "open image in new tab") between the [img] tags.

Hope that helps. :)
You know you're a writer when you're not alarmed at hearing voices in your head, you can't read a book without analyzing it for plot & characters and you consider something you nearly killed yourself to write the most rewarding.

Guilty as charged.
