  2. Greetings,

    Only animated GIFs are resized to the larger size. Static GIFs still get sized to the 19x19.

    I've taken the liberty of modifying the image for you so all you have to do is save and add
    it to your emoticons:

  4. Hi,

    Sure thing. I make all my emoticons in an ancient version of Corel Animation Shop. Just
    make two frames of the same image, don't allow it to optimize the image so that it removes
    identical frames and you're done. I'm sure the process would be similar in other tools too.
