    Or you can use Imageready, which comes standard with Photoshop.

    Imageready is soooo complicated. I could never find out how to make fughin' frames play one after the other. :(

    But for animated avatars, you're gonna wanna go with Ulead Gif Animator 5.

    I uses Ulead to make an animated avatar. I uploaded it, but it doesn't cycle.
    Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

    It's not really that complicated, and it can be worth using because it makes it easy to touch stuff up in photoshop then go straight to imageready.
