Scroll down to the bottom of this (http://www.lucasforums.com/member.php?s=&action=editavatar) page. There you can upload a custom one.

It must be 70x70 or under and 20kb or under.

Are you talking about the one you currently have or did you try to upload your animated one and it didn't work?

If you couldn't upload the animated one, check its file size and pixel size.

So, it was orgininaly .gif format right?

What did you use to resize it? I don't think Photoshop lets you resize gifs, or it will end up being .gif, .bmp, .jpeg, etc. wich will show it as an imange instad of an animation.

You may end up using some kind of .gif editor to resize it or something.

Yes it was originally in .gif format and i used a simple "paint" (drawing program) from the start menu then accessories.

So does anyone know where i can get a free gif editor then?
