Troubles uploading an animated avatar

I am having troubles uploading an animated avatar. (both .gif and .bmp)

The image is 90 x 90 pixels and is less than 10kb's.

The image is originally a .gif

When I try to upload it by Option 1 - Enter the URL to the Image on Another Website , it says "remote file is too large"

When I save the file onto my PC it changes the extension from .gif to .bmp

When I try and upload the saved .bmp file (still 90 x 90 and under 10kb's) it says "This is not a valid image file."

If I manually force the extension to .gif while saving, then upload, it says
"This BMP image has the incorrect file extension."

I have tried to change the extension after saving as well, and I get the same results. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Heya 400....

Try saving the image as a gif to your "pictures and albums" section under the "user CP" link up top left. Once you have it saved to your albums, you should be able to upload it to your avatar.
