    I have a few that work. However, there have been a few really cool ones that I have come across. When I right click and "save as...", it gets saved to my specified location but will no longer animate. The ones that I do have that work, I obtained the same way.

    What gives anyone?

    Yeah, I'll try that/ Just weird that a few I ahve on my computer animate and some don't. But with the 150X150 limit, allot of them I resize, maybe that is the problem :dunno:

    make sure when you save them, they save as a .gif file. :)


    Then, view them in Internet Explorer - viewed in most other programs, they won't annimate.

    Make sure they are being saved as .gif files and not .bmp files. For some odd reason, when IE's cache is full, it stops saving images properly. If that's the case, try clearing your cache and temp files.

    hmmm...that must be it, for some reason, my machine offers the.bmp extension by default. I will try changing it to the .gif next time around.

    Thanks ya'll.

    OK - tried to "save as...". When I do, the default option offered is .bmp and the dialogue box will not let me change it to .gif, even though the image I am trying to capture is a .gif image. HELP!

    try this -

    right click, and email photo...then, Outlook will open, you'll see the attachment as a gif. Right click on that again, and save..or, send to yourself :)
