I have seen it on other sites but i don’t know if it is a gif. But i would really like to get this to work. My website is: http://jezh42.wordpress.com/ The image i would like to use is this: http://goo.gl/UgWE1 I shortened the image URL because it is a picasa and the link is big. Thx.

You need to create a version of the image that will fit in your sidebar without being downsized (maximum 302px wide).
