    How would I be able to add in the orange ribbon to my avatar?
    I'm sure a lot of us would like to add it to our AV's in memory of Zac.
    TIA

    I just paste this ribbon to the picture I'm using as my av after I resize it and before I download. I use paint, very simple, click on edit, paste from. choose the file and there you are. Feel free to download this ribbon and use it.

    Well, I went into paint and tried to add in te ribbon. When I went to edit, however, there is no option for me to paste or copy in. The only option was select all.

    ETA - OK. I figured out my mistake - I'd been looking for paste instead of paste from. Sorry.
    However, when I add in the ribbon, I can no longer get my kitty to do pushups, it seems. Thanks. I will change my byline.

    Why is it they always sleep butt to butt? Mine do that too. Very cute Gabriel.

    Unk, kind of bittersweet to see Foggy again.

    Maybe they like to keep each others butts warm? Or they don't want tuna/doggie breath in their faces?

    Yeah that doesn't work on an animated gif.

    I can add it to an animated gif.

    Here you go, NRH.



    Copy/paste it onto your machine and upload it to your own webspace, ok? I'll need to delete it from my own FTP space.

    Ms. Fierce,
    You're the best.
    I just made it my avatar.
    Can you let us know how you did that?

    Many thanks!

    NRH: You're welcome.

    1) got my own ribbon JPG from a google search.
    2) copy/pasted your avatar gif to my machine.
    3) Opened up a GIF animation editing program and brought your GIF into it.
    4) Took 1 frame into Photoshop, added the ribbon in the corner so the background would match, cropped it down to just the ribbon & background.
    5) Copied the ribbon w/matching background onto each frame of your GIF.
    6) saved the new animation.

    Voila.

    If I had a more comprehensive gif animation program, that would have been simpler. As it is, though, I did it in less than 20 minutes. I love making anigifs.

    THank you again.
    Alas, I don't have Photoshop or any GIF animation programs, so I sure appreciate people like you helping me out.
