[challenge entry] It's like a B-Movie, but somehow worse!!!

Argh! The plastic animated spider stuck to the wardrobe with stickyback plastic is going to kill us all!! Shot in 'BROWN VISION' for added spoooooooky effect. Wooooooo.

I made it smaller woo, but I kept the BROWN VISION

# I likes that.
Bordering on modem meltdown sizewise for the dial-uppers, but I'm on broadband, so it's lovely.

# The intention was there
hey its my first post, I dont get all this putting things on the internet if somebody could tell me how to make my files smaller without "intentionally" putting them in 3 colour "BROWN VISION" that would be super. spiffing even. But hoorah for brown vision nontheless. I like "Them", giants ants rule!

# The
easiest way to make the filesize smaller is to resize the animation. Go for a width of 280 -- that's the standard round these here parts... :)

# simplest method would be
to make the actual picture smaller

with the amount of movement you've got in there, that's the best you could hope for really.

# Ooh ta
Hmmmm... I guess, when you think about it, it DOES make sense to make the picture smaller. Actually saying that I already did twice, when i took the photos i forgot to turn my camera off 1280x680, so I had to quater the size to make it even that small (big, whatever).

# have no fear
you'll get the hang of it

there's many technical things you could do in the preparation for making the anim, but now it's made and accepted, leave it well alone and just worry about the next one ;)

# Hmmm
"but now it's made and accepted, leave it well alone " I always get advice AFTER Ive done something :) I cut it down to 280x210, a slowdem friendly 192kb.

# Never realised it was a first post.
Splendid start by the way.
Always been partial to a spot of 1 bit dithering. Reminds me of the olden days....

As mentioned above scaling the picture is probably the best way to go to reduce the file size.
There's some bits and pieces in the FAQ's if you need to know, or just ask.
