hi ok so i just started using photoshop and i have the basics down (im able to make a gif, add effects, all that jazz) but i made a gif for a gifset and i cant upload it to tumblr because it's 25 MB. how do i lower this without messing up the quality?
25MB OMG how did that even happen LOL
OKAY LETS SEE, well make sure your gif isnt really long first off. You want to keep them only a few seconds long, maybe 3 - 4 seconds? Depends on how much action there is. If your gif is like 10 seconds long then you should split it. Also delete any extra duplicate frames if you need to (make a shortcut key for deleting so it goes by faster).
Make sure your gif is 540 pixels in width if you’re doing a full width size gif since the width of a Tumblr post is 540. Gifs from anime are usually 540 x 304 so make sure you didnt forget to resize it from it’s original dimensions.
Try going between Diffusion and Pattern in the gif output. Diffusion tends to have a larger file size than Pattern.
You can also try lowering the colors, but only push it down as much as you can without ruining the quality of the gif. Hopefully one of these helped D: 25mb is a very big size to bring down to under 3mb im sorry fjdkfjgl;
