    Default Help...me....

    Okay, usually I can figure stuff out on my own, but I can't figure out how to shrink the file size on an animated gif to use as an avy. It's probly so simple I'll be mad when I learn how, but someone...HELP!

    You need a gif animator.

    I don't know of any free ones off hand (prolly could search google easily enough though) but I offer my services if you want

    Check and see if your Photoshop came bundled with a program called ImageReady.

    If it did, just open your GIF in ImageReady and use the Image > Image Size (just like in Photoshop) to make it whatever size you want.

    I have image ready and I know how to crop the image and save it. I want to know how to actually make the file itself smaller. As in kilobytes-wise.

    Easiest way is to cull the animation as in remove some frames. The next best way is to save it with less resolution, colors, etc.
