i have problems to upload some .gif files with the ATS upload function.
some of my gifs are no problem, but others are, why ? If i try to upload a certain gif, it starts to upload, showing the process in red. Others uploaded with no problem, showing the process in green color.

Does anybody know this problem ? What and how could i change these "corrupted" gifs, so i can upload them ?

Try loading the gifs into graphics software then resaving them as Gifs again... Worth a try.... Apart from that Idk

My favourite is adobe freehand you can download a trial version for free. Photoshop or something like that would also work fine....

Sounds like your gifs are over 500kb.

you need to soak them to get them to shrink.

yup, try this for solution

www.online-image-editor.com...

If you look really close, it should show an "error message" for about .25 seconds flash and vanish that does not sticky for some reason, in ie, opera and firefox, have noted, the error not showing properly, saying file size exceeded
