Given the following spinner image:


How can the said image be placed in a white background and made into a bigger 250x350 gif or jpg fie for use as the 1st slide in an ajax  slideshow?
Watch Question

you cannot enlarge a gif without pixelating it; jpgs do not support animation


Any way to get something done like I requested?
Doubtful; A) Significant amount of work; B) Unlikely to be identical to what you've shown; C) The object shown is square but you've asked to distort it to 250x350, why?
Need clarification: AJAX Slideshow, what are you referring to? Is this a Dreamweaver question? Does it pertain to Image Viewer, a web photo album, an AJAX plugin, or something else?


Let me clarify what I need. The spinner is going to be kept the same size but laid on a white background. The whole thing will be a 250x350 gif or jpg file that can run and be previewed on IE or FF. 250x350 is the size for the slideshow. This once done, the rest is not a problem. Thanks again for any help.
You mean like the file i've attached?


Yes (but why is the spinner not running?).

Are you sure the spinner is spinning?


OK. I check again and see it's working.
but would you please teach me how to make it?
Thanks, thanks, thanks...
you have to import the gif into flash, resize the canvas, align the image in 31 frames and then publish as gif
