    It might be possible. I'll have to see what I can do.

    Thanks. I love the choice of scenery for each of them.

    How were the landmarks for each team determined?

    Re: Amazing Race 23 Pool

    I looked up a list of landmarks (this is a good one: 100 Most Famous Landmarks Around the World) and chose the top ones that caught my eye. I tried when possible to match them to teams in a way that made sense, such as Buckeye Brawlers getting the Colosseum. I choose Neuschwanstein as mine because when I was growing up, my mom had a picture of it in our dining room so I had some personal connection to it. A few I changed as I went along.

    There were so many landmarks, we could easily do this again for another Amazing Race pool without repeating any landmarks! Next time I could ask people when they register what landmark they want to use.

    If anyone wants a different landmark than they got, just let me know and I can make you a different avatar with the landmark of your choice.

    I was able to get mine to work with 5 images by reducing the colors and resizing the avatar to 107px.

    Did you resize each individual gif or just the combined animated one? I've been making each one smaller when I convert it to gif format and then bring the smaller ones into Unfreez. I'm not sure how to reduce the colors, but I'll check it out.

    Thanks for your help. It's my belief that continuing to learn new skills helps to stave off senility.

    Re: Amazing Race 23 Pool

    I combined them all first and then used the online image editor program I like to reduce the number of colors and resize it.

    I did an avatar for you but didn't have the best results. Maybe I could try it again without the Project Runway avatar to reduce the file size. That pool is almost over anyway.

    Here's the one I did for you. I was originally going to highlight each small avatar on the top row as the image changed but decided not to since that might make the file bigger:
