    Unfortunately that's a problem. In the GIF format each pixel is either completely opaque or completely transparent, which means there is no way to blend the edges of the animation with a varying background. As far as I can think there are only two options:

    (1) Create the animation with the background, rather than making it transparent.

    (2) Use a different format, e.g. animated PNG. Unfortunately there are browser compatibility issues with animated PNGs though. Flash could be the best option of all, but of course you need to be able to create Flash files.

    I think not. Perhaps if you can show us the animation and background we might be able to offer more suggestions, but as I said, this is a limitation of the GIF format.
