I wanted to post aniamted pics or .gif to the site. I did manage to post one, but I had to reduce it a lot, just to make it work. Are there good GIF tools that can be used to make the animated GIFs under 1 MB?

Depends on what place you have to make it work for. GIFs on Discord can only be 8MB or less by default, and in your file bin they'll quickly eat up space too, but you can always upload them to a site like gfycat and link them here.

If you do need to optimize your GIFs, there's a site called ezgif that gives you a lot of GIF-related tools to play around with.


I need those for certain screenshot replacements.

I've taken a look, and it seems you're talking about the last image of this submission specifically. Since it's the only one I could find, I'll be using it as an example.

First, when recording GIFs, make sure that the image is at the proper ratio and no other filters have been applied. This is so the image is clear and doesn't contain unnecessary colors. Your GIF is very blurry due to the anti-aliasing caused by not following this correctly, bumping up the number of colors and consequently the size.

Secondly, if size problems persist, you may need to record shorter GIFs. In this case, your GIF spends plenty of frames wandering around the same spot multiple times. Cutting off frames can help immensely on size reduction.

After that, you can use compression tools like the aforementioned ezgif to automate the rest. Most of these tools also allow for lossy compression should size still be a problem.

To demonstrate, I've made a quick edit of your GIF. Just from applying the second suggestion and some automated compression, the size dropped from 980 KB to just 668 KB.
