GIFs now accepted!

I did some fiddling with the gallery, because I knew our host provided support for GIF files. The gallery will now accept GIFs! This is awesome news! So, go forth and gif-ify! :D

Yes! Does this mean I can upload the buttons now?

Yep! That should help you be able to check the transparency, too, I'd imagine. When I first started with images, I usually had to upload before I knew if I'd done it right. (Which I usually hadn't!) :D

OK, cool. I thought I'd ask, since there are so many, and I don't want to take up unnecessary amounts of space. I'll just do the Gryffindor ones for now.

EDIT: Hmm... I uploaded the first five, and it looks like they're on a black background instead of being transparent. How can I fix it in photoshop, or is it just a gallery thing?

Also, I was wondering if there's a way to delete old pictures from the gallery?

ooo, that's right, there are a lot of them. Um, you can just email them to me if you want.

Not sure about deleting files. I can, but if you don't seem to have that privilege, let me know, and I can delete them for you.

As for the black background, it's not just a gallery thing. I haven't ever used Photoshop, but I found this article, which should help: http://www.mediacollege.com/graphics/photoshop/transparent/gif.html
