    I just recently started messing with GIFs for some marketing work of mine and I''m noticing that it's really hard to shrink the file size much for them with all the website tools I have used. And sometimes I upload a large GIF to some of those sites to reduce the size and it can't reduce it any ? Also whenever I try to change the aspect ratio of GIFs I notice that it makes the file size INSANE even if the resolution is actually smaller overall than the original to start with. Any help guys ?

    Use adobe Photoshop to reduce the size of GIF images,
    the size of image depend on how many colors are there on the file,
    for getting the smallest size use 256 color mode or else you may also try reducing
    the DPI of the original file what you are trying to reduce the size.
    when you open the file menu of Adobe Photoshop there is an Option with name "Save For Web"
    use that to save you files in place of directly saving them.
