Animation shop works fine.

Heres a 19k version (down from 52k) that'll work here.

Devart doesnt have as strict file size limitations (i think) so you might be able to get away with using the original.

I have a program called GIF Movie Gear that allows different types of optimization: colour reduction, transparent areas, frame deletion...

Many who live deserve death, some who die deserve life - can you give it to them?
Then be not so quick to deal out death in judgement.

the absolutly most powerfull gif compressor with the most options is ImageReady, it comes free with Photoshop since # version 4.
at the botton of the toolbar in photoshop there in a button that opens imageready, you can switch back and forth from the two programs, they poth work with slices,layers,and filters and inbetween frame tools. lots of realy cool stuff
