Are you trying to reduce file size or image size?

You can do both in PhotoShop, CorelPaint or any image editing program like that.

The file size has been reduced, hope it works out.

EDIT: BTW, can I ask what you want to use the gif for? If you want to use it for msn, then I'll have to reduce it more but if you want to use this as your RF avatar it should work fine.

If you want it for msn here it is:



^^I had to kill the colour table on that one because msn gif files have to be less then 200kb which sucks but still I'm using it on mine atm and looks pretty good

Cool...just installed the new msn, a lot of shit going on when u open it up now lol but the gifs will be cool.

Do this through photoshop to reduce the size:

Choose File > Import > Video Frames to Layers
In the file browser in Windows, type *.* in the File Name and press Enter or click Load.
It will not open any file, but it will view every file without restriction of Type of Files.
Open your animated GIF files, it will show you a dialog box regarding the imports. Press OK to import as default.
The file is opened in animation frames. Then go to File, then save for web or devices...and then press the file size tab and play with the dimensions, colour, etc.
