    Default Manipulating a Gif File

    I have gif files (both animated and static) that display a text message. I can go into my graphics program and change the text to something new. What I want to be able to do is make any changes to the text purely in ASP code. <BR><BR>Here&#039;s what I&#039;m trying to do. Let&#039;s say I have a web page where the banner says "Hello World" . What I want is for someone to come to the site, enter some different words in an input field and have the gif file be changed to the new wording.<BR><BR>Is this possible in ASP (or maybe VB)? And if so, can you point me to resources where I can figure this out?<BR><BR>Thanks a bunch.<BR><BR>Ramon

    Generally, you can&#039;t edit GIF files. This is because of the stupid Unisys licensing fees you have to pay (when I researched it 2 1/2 years ago, it was about $5,000).<BR><BR>Pick another format and stick w/ non-animated images. Something like;s control should work just fine.
