I uploaded a picture that I have wanted to use as an icon. I have never uploaded it in the past because it is too big of a file size for LJ. (approx. 100 KB) I uploaded it as a test image to the LJ PHS, and saw an option for Upload/Manage user picture in the livejournal section of the properties page (of that particular picture). Now, I tried this, but only got the first frame of the animated gif on my LJ icon page. Is this because it is an animated gif, or because the filesize is too large, or is this some other problem?

Thanks for any input.

It's because we currently disable animation with Fotobilder GIF previews. The usericon tool is using that disabled GIF, so that's a bug. Adding to our fixit list. :)

Hey, while yer at it, can you make it so I can use all my fotobilder space for usericons, and take out the 50 limit?

at this time you can only have up to 50 userpics, up to 40kb each. this is for all users.

everyone has the 50mb limit.

Yes.

It was meant sort of in jest. I know the limits, and wish they were not in place. I also know that they are unlikely to change in the near future.

Heh. That would be fab! Although, I would still want the 40kb limit on individual pics... *imagines scary load times on some comment conversations*
