    got a computer junkie question for you guys... I wasnt sure if i should put this here or the computer section so any mod can move it if I chose wrong. :D

    I found a website that has some awesome Avatars on it... I'm partial to the ones that move (.gif). Here's my problem...

    I cant get the avatar's off that site. When I right click.. Properties.. and copy and paste a URL, it says the URL isnt found. When I click to Save As, it wont give me the option to save it as a gif, just bmp.

    Any way I can get these things as gifs?

    Ooops.... giving you the site might help. :rolleyes:

    1. View the properties

    2. Highlight the whole filename, path and all: "http://uselessgraphics.com/girafe.gif"

    3. Copy it by right clicking, and then choose "copy".

    4. Paste it where you need it. In some cases you need the "[ img] and [ /img]" surrounding it (minus the quotes and spaces).

    Make sense?

    You are trying for an avatar?

    -Or are you just pasting into a post?

    I'm trying to change my avatars around...

    I right clicked, clicked properties, highlighted teh filename, clicked copy and pasted in the avatar section... i get that the file isnt found. When i try to save it to my pictures, it automatically saves it as a bmp.
    do i need the img /img in the avatar section as well?
