    *moved to help

    Is it smaller than 95 by 95? Is it a gif animation or a gif image?

    Make sure it's smaller than 95x95 pixels. If you don't have any way to see what size it is, and assuming it's a pivot animation, just keep re-exporting it with a bigger 'shrink frames' setting until it lets you upload.

    Or the image may be too long/ too many colors. It can only be a certain amount of the ol' KBs.

    you usually dont save a flash file as a gif. Try resaving it as a .swf but save it with the dimensions way smaller.

    Or don't upload it to the site. Host it on imageshack.com or something and then just link to it.

    Sounds like he is trying to upload it to imageshack, so go back in flash and open up your .fla , then go up to file-export movie-and then it will export as an .swf, and it will upload I think your just trying to upload an .fla right now which cannot be hosted by imageshack, you can upload it to a download site though : /

    Does that work?

    Becasue he said .swf ( " It just say that the image must be a .gif .bmp .swf but it " ) it sounds like imageshack to me, or does the forum upload support it too? I never tried : /

    Well if you are using the forum upload then you have to go into flash and change the publish settings under file, and uncheck everything except .gif which is your target upload file it sounds like.

    FYI
    When saving a flash file as a gif just don't rename the extension. Go
    >File
    >Publish settings
    >Gif (set the settings)
    > click apply or ok or w/e
    >Go File
    >Publish preview
    >Gif
    it should open up in IE or firefox with your gif animation and from there you can 'right click' 'save image as'
