Default Unanswered: GIF Prof. Picture.

Ah-kay. So, I've been looking at peoples' beautiful profiles and see GIFs as a profile picture, and so I thought, hey, I want one too! D:

So, I found a GIF that I love, cropped it smaller, got rid of frames I didn't need, and now I have 10 frames. It moves just fine. The size is 147x121.

So, I really need/want 2 things answered, really.

1.) Some GIFs I see people use as their profile pictures are bigger than mine, and actually look like it involves more than 10 frames. How do I do that? .-.

2.) This is my picture: Click the image to open in full size.
And when I upload it, it's a frozen GIF. It's not moving. So what do I do?

Thanks in advance! ♫

Maybe try cropping it even more (the file size might be too big), also try and delete some more frames...
Make sure you save it as a GIF...
Omg I'm sorry I'm not any help at all! xD

Okay, I has this problem once.
I don't know if this may work but use this:
(The one made by Honey)

Click the image to open in full size.
And click on it like to copy the url
Once you do that put the copied url in your URL bar when changing your avatar.
And I think that is how you do it.

Sorry if I'm no help

It is quite annoying, aha. And when I save it, it doesn't save it as a gif, it saves it as jpg. D: idk what to do now. >.<

You can get one of the smaller size of the GIF above, go on Gimp, and optimize it if you haven't already.
