Solved How can I upload this gif file as my avatar?

Post by Sumi Kitamura on May 31st 2017, 1:38 am

Hello,

So I been making GIF images for my forum using the tool GIMP, they all uploaded perfectly fine until it came to my avatar. I get an error; "Your uploaded file (avatart.gif) is too large or corrupted".
I have tested the image out through browser, it seems to upload though many image uploads and it animates and works fine.

Do you guys have a file size limit for animated images?
So this is the properties of my Gif, 160 x 220 393kb transparent
Is the kb too big?
I've also tried to host it and the transparency disappears and the animation stops. Same with trying to upload the avatar via link from another image upload site.
I've been creating gif images for my forum and they all have turned out just fine.

For those familiar with GIMP
First layer is the background, there are 71 frames. I have done with it like all the others: Filters > Animation > Optimize (For GIF) [then with new window]:, File > Export as... > (Saved as GIF) [as animation] [loop forever] [30ms]

As I said I've done this with a few other images and they all came out fine. So I don't understand what I could have possibly done wrong. Or if it's even possible to upload GIF images for the forums?
If there is a size limit how can I change the size to fit the avatar upload?

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried to removed some of the size?

I wanted to try to avoid that, so there is a size limit then? What's the max kb size the forum allows? Is there anyway I can make the size bigger for the avatars?

No not the dimensions, the file size. The avatar is 383KB big, if there is a size limit for avatars is it only 100KB? 150KB? Can I modify this?

Hi there,

'The file size cannot be higher than 64 KB.'

This cannot be changed either, sorry.

huh, I currently have an avatar with the dimensions 160 x 220 on my forum... that uploaded fine. But if the file size is only 64KB then okay, I'll probably remake this into a signature lol. Thank you.
