I would like to resize a GIF image?
Now days the average computer user is learning to convert and resize all types of files, and therefore making it necessary to install yet another program to do the job. But if you want to resize a gif image you can simply use a free online animated picture editor.
A normal picture editor will not be able to resize a gif image as it is animated and usually, but not always, is a moving series of images. I have written article about resizing a picture with Picasa, however this is not the same as resizing a gif. I also have a cool trick to resize a digital photo but have not tried this with a GIF image.
Resizing a Gif Image in the Old Days
In the old days, resizing a gif image file was a major technical event. It seriously wasn’t even worth the effort. Just be aware that although we can now resize a gif image, and it is relatively easy, it does sometimes distort the original file. In my experience it is always better to make the gif image smaller when resizing it. Making it larger is sometimes pushing your luck, but there is no harm in giving it a go.
