Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 150 by 150 pixels or 140.0 KB (whichever is smaller).

Re: gif size??

^ Yep. Also, keep them under the 150x150 size limit, because the software will resize them if they're not, and then all you'll have is a still frame image.

Re: gif size??

If you post the gif you want as an avatar here, perhaps one of our resident experts will be able to resize/optimize it for avatar size for you.

And for anyone who's interested in editing/optimizing gifs but doesn't want to download any software, the following three sites are excellent:
