I am trying to optimize an animated GIF image in Photoshop. The current size is 2.2 MB. Following the guides I found online, they told me to "Save as Web" and then decrease the colors from 256 down to 128 or 64.
I tried that — however, when I try to decrease it, the size actually increased.
- 128 colors = 4.4 MB
- 64 colors = 5 MB
Does anyone know why this is happening?
Original (256 colors):
After (128 colors):
