Q | What is an animated gif?
A | An animated gif is essentially a .GIF file that has two or more individual frames and is designed to play those frames at a set interval, thus animation. It is an extremely popular format for web site graphics due to its extremely small file size as well as it stability with a majority of web browsers and computer platforms. Animated GIFs can be used on websites, in PDF’s, in PowerPoint presentations and a variety of other places.

Q | Are the images and turorials found on this site made only by glitterbank?
A | Yes all images and tutorials are made exclusively by glitterbank. All code generators are purchased scripts that are either owned by a third-party or licensed as freeware, but the graphics generated by them are made exclusively by glitterbank.

Q | Can I make my own glitter images or animated gifs?
A | Yes-animated gifs are relatively easy to design, provided you are using the right tools. We recommend as they are the premier graphics software programs. Programs such as Photoshop Elements are reasonable easy to learn and relatively inexpensive. Also, glitterbank.com’s detailed tutorials on creating animated gifs can be found here.

Q | Are all of the images free?
A | Yes – free to use – that is. All ownership is retained by Glitterbank. This means that if you use it - you agree with the terms of service. Your only options for using the graphics are to use the code from the code generator (without changing the code - or it is considered hotlinking) or downloading the graphic and using your own host.

A | For profiles like Myspace, Friendster, etc. copy the code from the generator and paste it anywhere in your profile. Please do not hotlink them.

Another alternative is to download the image and save them to your own host. Glitterbank recommends freeshare, it's free to use and allows you to hotlink graphics. Give credit to gitterbank for providing your graphic by linking back to us at www.glitterbank.com or use one of our banners.

Q | What is the difference between hotlinking and getting the code from the code generator?
A | While both refer to having graphics in your profile that are hosted on glitterbank.com, the code generator will also produce a link back to glitterbank, so that your visitors can find us. Changing or altering the code provided is a violation of the terms of use and is prohibited. (It is considered hotlinking)
