    Can anyone tell me how to resize a .gif

    The image size is good, but the file size is too big. How do I go about it??

    Switch over into Image Ready by clicking on the image ready icon at the bottom of the Photoshop Pallet, and lower the color quality to something lower. Try 16 or 32 colors and re save the .gif. It's most likely a 256 color .gif by default. You can do all of this in Photoshop, however Image Ready seems to have better .gif compression and it's easier to manipulate it's color quality range.

    This should lower the file size to something more suitable for you.

    Alright, did all that, but when I go to re save it, it will only let me save it as a Photoshop file.
