I have a question: how did you remove the background so you can post it anywhere without a box showing as the background?

All that happens is a little box pops up and says saving as a GIF may cause loss of color.

Which program are you using?

And GIF always results in a loss of colour, I wouldn't worry too much.

But as long as there is no background colour at the time of saving then it should stay transparent...

Feel free to save my smiley onto your computer to tear it apart, sort of thing... Express your inner engineer!

I used GIMP to remove the backgrounds and Unfreez to animate it.

Add an alpha Layer under layers.
paste your other layers on top.

Save as gif or png.
