Re-sizing GIFs?


Recommended Posts

i found a gif i'd like to use, but want to resize it so it's not HUGE.

can pshop do this?

if so, how?

there are two images. there are two layers. whenever i save the file after resizing it, it's a gif, but it's not animated. it just bunches the layers together and doesn't alternate.

You should be able to do it in Photoshop. Open the GIF file, and check the Timeline feature (Window > Timeline) to make sure the GIF's natural frames are in place. Then just re-size it the way you would normally using Image Size (Image > Image Size) and to re-save the file and retain the animation, Save For Web as GIF.

i don't have timeline in my window menu. i'm also using a mac, maybe i should fire up illustrator on my pc and see if i can figure it out. not sure i have pshop on the pc.


these are my options






what i was indeed able to do was get the gif to save as a gif (save for web and devices) but as i tried to articulate, it just bunches the layers together and didn't retain the animation. i wonder if this timeline feature you're explaining is my missing key.


i am also a complete novice (read: idk how to do shit) with pshop, so it's very possible i'm doing something incorrectly.


thanks phil.
