Thread: Saving an animated GIF under 50K

    Saving an animated GIF under 50K

    I'm making a series of animated web banner ads to be used in Google AdWords. The problem is that AdWords has a size limit of 50K. The banner that I'm trying to test with it is only a logo, a small line of text, a button and a texture. When I go to save for web it starts out at 195K and if i knock the colors down to 64, it's still at 145K. Does anyone have any ideas to knock it down to 50K that I'm not thinking of? Thank!

    Less animation frames will be the only way

    Keep the design you have and when you go to save it, there's a section where you can 'Optimize for a specific size.' Open that and put in 50k. Then save your file and check it out in a browser.

    If it isn't to your liking, then start pulling out frames and making adjustment. I find it's easier to go backwards than forwards.

    I hope this helps.

    You can take colours out manually to decrease the size
