Two things. Since upgrading to the new version of OSX, it doesn't recognize the .gif backgrounds so that i cannot change my desktop screen. Any ideas? Also how to you design those fancy signatures that many of you are using?

Thank you for your assistance.

I always thought GIFs worked with the desktop patterns and photos. If you download GraphicConverterX 4.2.1 or use something similar perhaps you could try converting re-saving GIF as a JPEG and then trying it again? I'm not sure if that's the simplest solution, but it might work.

With regards to the fancy signatures, I think there's some way to upload your own graphics while you register with MacNN. They do look cool!

Actually what I meant was what software is used to design the signiture and the gifs worked fine with all other versions of osx. NOw they are greyed out. Thank you for your response.
