Sooo I'm going to make a sort of dumb Eustace sig out of a GIF. I'm going to want to make it the right size, recolor it a little, and add some text.

This is the homepage at ezgif.com.
Image

RESIZING
Now I'm on the the resize page, which I got to by clicking the GIF Resize tab along the top of the homepage. I'm going to click "Browse" and find the picture on my computer. Once I've found it I'll click "Upload!"
Image
So now my picture is uploaded. It's going to be 500 wide, and it will automatically resize the rest once I click "Resize it!"
Image
Here's the result. I'll save it to my computer and continue to the next step.
Image

CROPPING
I loaded my resized picture. Here I've typed in the size I want (500x160) and dragged the little box to were I want it. Now I'll click "Crop it!"
Image
Here we go. Again I'll save it to my computer.
Image

FILTERING
Here's the "Effects" toolbar. First I'm going to do my color filter, which will give the picture an interesting color effect.
Image
I'm choosing the "Toaster" filter, as you can see down at the bottom.
Image
I've applied the filter now, and I'll save the picture to my computer.
Image

ADDING TEXT
Now, on that same "Effects" toolbar, I'm going to find "Add Text". I'll put in a bunch of question marks along the bottom of the sig, since Eustace looks really curious in the picture.
Image
Applied, and once again I'll save it to the computer.
Image

FINISHED RESULT
Image
Sig from Nia; thank you, Nia!

If somebody has an idea for a Narnia comic that they weren't planning on making themselves, I <------ This offer still
would be so grateful if they would send it to me in a PM. I am running appallingly low on ideas...! <-- stands. ;)

Question: Could you specify what size my gif needs to be to fit properly into the sig? And what size the av is supposed to be?

And if you want me to respond to anything, you will have to quote me I am afraid.
