I am wondering if anyone knows if an animated gif. file can be resized and still retain the animation. I have tried to resize the picture using microsoft paint but I always loose the animation aspect of the image. I am very new to image alteration and I only have microsoft paint to work with. Can someone help me?

you need to get a gif animator, a good free one is animagic. You break the gif down frame by frame, resize then put it all back together. Kinda time consuming but it does the trick. Just opening it in paint and saving it only shows the first frame. You need an animator. If you have Adobe Image Ready you may wanna tinker with that a bit but Animagic is the way to go if you're cheap like me

Thanks ShAuNmAn-X

I just downloaded animagic and it seems pretty cool. I think I'm going to enjoy working with it.

"ULead" Gif Animator costs a little, but it allows you to resize, adjust time frames and even some color correction all in Photoshop like manner...

It displays the gif frame by frame, but performs the adjustments automatically...

You can but, I believe the gif will tile.

background images must not be more than 50k in size


It's hard to get a good animated image at that size that works well. As Sauron mentioned it will end up repeating and usually looks horrible. Good luck with that.

I understand about the 50k limit......I was struggling for ages until I used "Adobe Image Ready".

Amazing


I could not believe how much info I could get into a tiny little file (up to 78 frames at 128 colours!).

Lots of tweeking and great fun. Suprising what one can learn doing CG from a desperate desire to achieve the impossible.

I guess that's what drives me to do these things and push my limits of creative capabilities.

I'm completely self taught in most things. Trial and error...........not being afraid to make mistakes and always willing to get things wrong.


If I can help anyone else in making avatars, backgrounds or gifs etc, just U2U me.
