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. :)

For in everything it is no easy task to find the middle ... anyone can get angry—that is easy—or give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for everyone, nor is it easy; wherefore goodness is both rare and laudable and noble.
