    i have searched here for solutions and there seems to be a problem i am unable to resolve.

    When i upload an animated .gif, it is fine in the profile vcard. In the post bit it resizes it in a weird way and it is also no longer animated

    1) I have selected ImageMagick PECL Extension in the ACP
    2) the pcl extension is installed on server

    the screenshot shows versions as well as the URL to the (not yet public) forum (under construction)

    check out user Maurice W. Evans (or look in the welcome section for my threads)

    that post bit should be animated (it IS animated in the hovercard)

    help?

    Thanks in advance

    Did you add imagick.so to your php.ini and then restart httpd after

    Your ImageMagick version appears to be old. Notice the difference in the ImageMagick version portion. Yours is 6.2.8.

    Not going to guarantee this is the problem...but you should upgrade to the latest supported just for general purposes.
