Sorry if it's a dumb question, but how do you make a gif your profile picture?
I saved a gif and made it my profile picture, but it didn't work.

This always happens to me. I end up asking pizzaplanet to do it for me. He won't reveal the secret.  :(

I pasted the link in Specify Avatar by URL with no success.

Resize it with tinypic.com  Select URL then select the Avatar size option.

P.S. Sorry about being sassy saying, "it's not that hard." I woke up on the sassy side of the bed today.

In about 5 minutes or less.


Anyway, what they said is accurate.  Make sure it's of a proper size both resolution and file size.  Then link to it.

how do I change the resolution and file size online?

Hipster, I had the same problem. You have to tinker with it, and get the size down. I think it was 800 X 400 but i'm not sure.

This should work now.

Edit: for future reference, download the animation to your computer, open in GIMP.

Click Image -> scale image.  Reduce the width or height to make it smaller.  I made it 100 pixels wide.

Click File -> Export.  Select the option for .Gif and animation. 

Then just upload to a photo host and get the direct address for the picture.

It took less than 20 seconds, not including download and upload.  And, it is an animation.

Yeah, I could have probably done some command line shit, but 1.  I was on a Windows computer, and 2.  It is quick and easy to do it this way.  Also, 3. not everyone is a geek.
