Please help! My gif is not uploading. The dimensions are 510X366 but the file size is 3.45 MB. How do I reduce the file size? Will the chop be out of focus? Is it possible to make this work? Thanks! Crying or Very sad

Read the tips at the end of this tutorial: http://photoshopcontest.com/tutorials/29/how-to-create-gif-animations.html

With a file that size, you either have too many frames or too much movement. Perhaps a combination of both. You can reduce the number of colors in the GIF, but that produces graininess. You can delete frames. You can shrink the animation and pad it with a white border that takes up little space.

The size limit is a challenge.
