WP-Headlineanimator generates an animated GIF File to be displayed in signatures or wherever you like to advertise for your Blog.
Just draw your own background image, upload and use the new filename in the config
If the labels are written in red, the plugin cannot access the files. Keep in mind: * the background picture path is relative to your wordpress directory * the font file uses an absolute path as most distributions are installing fonts to /usr/share/fonts/...
The remote FTP server will just act as a file storage.
