    > OMG! The security update from April 1st has reduced my page to its simplest elements!

    For the folks who e-mailed me wanting to see the April Fools Day page, I posted a photo link to it on my 'normal' page.

    Thanks for the comments and thanks to QRZ for being such good sports. ;)

    QRZ User Support Center Case #263481

    Dear WA6WGS,

    We received the following request from you:

    Good morning, How can I get a .GIF animated file embeded in my QRZ web page? I uploaded the .GIF to my pictures, but when I look at the properties of the file on QRZ (in my pictures selection folder), it shows as it is now a .JPG. How do I get it uploaded correctly to QRZ as a .GIF? How do I embed it in my QRZ web page so that it will play. It works correctly otherwise. Thanks Ed WA6WGS

    The support team sent the following message:

    I'm sorry, I really can't help with page design stuff. My advice would be to upload a different gif. Or not upload a gif. Thanks for using QRZ.

    Guess I posted the above in the wrong place. got a pretty lousy answer to the question, not even a referral to this post.

    Just a simple question about uploading a animated GIF.
    Does the way the GIF is made affect the upload to QRZ?

    Yes, QRZ support animated images . But if you upload a too big file it divide it to each pictures and upload it. Your animated arrow upload fine , but when you try upload a big file with award gallery ( each picture 100+kB) - QRZ uploaded each image of award separate . Try reduce each image size and then generate again animated image . Before upload - look how many kB it will. The size over 1mB is hard to upload

    Hi Vlad,
    That is exactly the information that I was looking for. The file is over that limit. So that must be the problem.
    What the GIF contains is award certificates. Is there a way to compress a GIF?

    I think no any way compress gif image. Really visitors can't adjust speed of animated image - much better using scrolling box (horizontal or vertical) - in this case visitors can stand by and read what your certificate about.
    Look to examples of horizontal scrolling box - XX2C , ZL2WL (awards) , vertical - XX2BB - the visitors data on the right , same script for images etc.

    What about now - red callsign - is it better?

    Yes, much better! The red, non-italic callsign is way more attractive and easier to read.
    Thank you.
