Are you sure it's a .gif image? If not, have you tried opening it in something like Irfanview, which can cope with a wide variety of image formats? You could then save it as a .gif.

"just created my own glitter image"

How, and with what software, and what form did you save it in?

You say "its come up with the html code to put on my website" - but html code is not an image - so perhaps you can explain a bit more what you're actually doing please.

yes i went on click here to add glitter to my image and when you have finished it just gives you the html code to put on your website but i want it saved as gif so i can use in my email??

I don't think what you are seeing is an image in the normal sense - but an HTML effect. So I can't really see how you are likely to capture it except with a camera. Most digital cameras can capture video clips - even a webcam at low resolutions.

Or you could construct a web page with an image, add the glitter code to it - then send that in an email.

But since you never actually have a glittery image, I can't see how it can ever be converted to, say, an animated gif.

Or you could do a screengrab and save that using something like Paint and then paste that into your emails.

Well - if in doubt - try it out!

On the web page from your link - I wrote some text and sumitted it for glittering.

I was sent to a page that showed the text glittering - so far so good.

I right-clicked (each letter inturn) andsaved the imahes on my system

I then pasted them into an email which i sent to myself- and lo and behold they showed up as glittery text.

So they really are animated gifs, which you can save and piut straight into an email.
