your title says "animal gif" heh.

You could just include them in an img element, and change the width/height properties to the right size. However, this doesn't change loading times and will distort the image as well as rely on the browser's not-quite-so-good scaling abilities, so it will likely appear blocky.

Aside from that, you need an image editor that supports gifs.

Search download.com (or google) for "gif animator"... I believe there's a program called exactly that, if I remember correctly...

I use adobe image ready which comes with photoshop. If it's just one image you want adjusting by all means email it to me and I'll do it for you.

sure, but only if you already have photoshop... it's a big investment to just resize one gif ;)
(I do have PS, and I gotta say I hate image ready... for a few reasons. The main one is its terrible animation settings/format/views... ew.)

Animation Shop which comes with Paint Shop Pro is nice... I think the price tag is around $89, not like $400 or whatever Photoshop is. I'm still using PSP v5, and it works great. Ebay it :p

Anyway, though, for a practical matter, just use download.com... it's easy, free and lots of options if one doesn't work.

And then not have to worry about corrupting your original
