Profile Picture Gif's - The More You Know

Recommended Posts

So I see a lot of people using normal every day profile photos.

Just thought I would let everyone know who doesn't know... You can use Gif's for profile photos. Like my little ghost.

Just search on google "Gif" along with a word that is something you love. For example "Race Car Gif" or "Crossout Gif"

You would be surprised how many choices you can really pick from. Just make sure you save a small file size. The XO profile editor doesn't like anything too big.

Example: 

BlackYellowEgret.gif

Don't worry about copyright too much. You haven't claimed you created it, and your just using it for a profile photo on a forum that not that many people use. The chance of copyright strike is slim to none. As long as it's being used for non-commercial use you shouldn't get in trouble.

But, it was too big. And I'd rather not give the haters a reason to report me.

I like how you've defined "creative" as copying you.

I didnt get that message. He gave an informed post and listed examples.

It's a nice PSA for the few people left who still don't realize that most forums allow this option. But it doesn't really make it "more creative" just because it's animated.

If you use "Advance Search" on google you can look for smaller gif's relating to that one you picked. You might be able to find a smaller file size that way since advanced search lets you control how big of a file you want to find.

I got lucky mine worked. You may have to try a few different ones till it works.

Old school MS Paint trick;

If you convert to black and white only then your fill ( bucket ) option becomes patterns.  So do your line art first and make sure all areas requiring different fills have no gap for fill tool.  Then just go back over it with a single pixel pencil tool to polish off some areas where two patterns meet and add final details

 

And if you are really committed, you can overlay a BW pattern on a new colored version by opening multiple paint windows ( old school layer trick ) to give a colored pattern by making white transparent;

 That's awesome Pickleberry!!!

 

The pic I used on my profile was too large, over the 0.1mb restriction.  What I did was "edit" the photo by decreasing the resolution to 640x480 or even 320x240.  Then it fit just fine.

I wasn't trying to be a jerk, I just enjoyed the irony.

No I know, but you were right. No hard feelings.
