*points at thrawn* HA-HA! ;)
Are you just trying to make a avatar that is non-moving?

Yes. BTW I suggest you refrain from anymore unsettling remarks! ;)

*after getting up from repeated beatings* So did you figure out how to do it?
If not you can pm me, or pm YD; he loves getting pm's, in fact I don't think he gets enough of them! ;)

Probably the easiest way would be to save it as a .gif and while saving it, set the background color to transparent.

"making sure the color you want to get rid of is set as the bg color. :D"

or you could cut out all the area you want transparent, but that can be difficult.
