Reduce KB?

Helllo. I want to use this as my signature, but I don't know to reduce it's size to fit forum standards?

or this one.

Re: Reduce KB?

The easiest way is to download a free image editor that supports working on animated .gif files (such as Imagine.)

Now, open the animated gif you want.

The main problem with both of those is that they're big. Not so much in file size, but in actual, physical, size. So you'll want to scale them down. That's Image > Resize.

Now, you can either set the new pixel dimensions you want, or set the size as a percentage. You can also choose what algorithm you want to use to resize it. If you don't like the way it looks after a resize then just try a different one.

Then save the new image and you're set!

As an added bonus, the smaller images will also have reduced file sizes.

Re: Reduce KB?

If it's still too large you can use a number of free programs (like the GIMP) to cut excess frames out. It might make the image look choppier, but it'll reduce filesize.

Re: Reduce KB?

Imagine can also cut out frames, but there aren't all that many there to start with.

It shouldn't be an issue, though, as even a reduction to 75% drops the size to 340KB, 50% to 150KB (that's for the first one) and both are still perfectly visible.
