Here's mine (ain't he cute).

Know where he's from (I sense a wave of nostalgia)?

I don't know about multi pics (what are those?), but I would think that the easiest way to get animation would be to use an animated gif.

Although I must say that if everyone used a full-on animation I would probably turn the avatars off.

Too distracting.

To do an animated gif, you would need a gif animator program such as 'Gif Animator 3' (I have it).

But animated gifs take up a lot of space - an avatar with 5 frames would take up the same space as 5 unanimated avatars (or more). So it might not be a very good idea in the interest of a quick loading page.

Ben C has good taste in avatars! Unlucky for him that he is not Swedish! Then he could have used the same beautiful avatar as I use...

By the way: mine is a 250 byte GIF - could be the fastest avatar on the E zone!

I've been trying to post an avatar, but I get an error message saying "That image is too large. The maximum dimensions are 75 by 75 pixels." My jpeg is 75x57 pixels and 4489 bytes.

Maybe I'm missing something...

The image you posted is 90 x 68 pixels.
