Saving animations

Postby baseball6791 » Tue Jan 24, 2006 2:40 am

How do you guys how do animation with imageready save your animations in gif and still retain full quality. For example, chipo's LT sig from the Football cafe contest was perfect quality, yet still animated. How do you do that?

No not under cafe limits - thtas impossible. Actuallly how to save it full quality. it seems when I save as a gif it loses a lot of quality just by saving as a gif...

hmmm...the only thing i can think of is setting the colours to the maximum...256. sometimes in order to keep an avatar under 6k for the cafe i have to set the colours down to 16 or whatever to get lower quality on it.

I know what your talking about and I don't know if its just the gimp or what.

But when I make a color av. The gif file loses alot of quality. I haven't toyed with it alot yet. But I know what you are saying...i can't figure it out yet
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

if the site you use to host has a maximum KBs like photobucket I believe it automatically deduces KBs which reduces quality which could be a problem. Saving them as .gifs hasnt lost a lot of quality for me though
