[challenge entry] Viagra spam
click and watch it grow
Blah Blah Blah. This image is to big. Does anyone have any good tips to reduce the size of this animated gif without actually losing any detail. Why the fuck am I putting this alt text in anyway? No body ever reads this shit. bah! fuck socks!

# i read that bit
you can't, you have to lose detail. it's a palette-restricted format.

lossy too, if you want.

# I suggest trial and error...
...imageready has a nice optimisation pallete that makes it easy to fiddle with.

In the end it is always a compromise between size (KB), size (physical), no of colours and no of frames.

Somewhere in the middle of all that you will find the best settings for your anim.
