FAQ

What size should an animated GIF be?

Ideally, you want to keep the size of your animation under 1MB. The bigger the file size, the slower it’s going to load. When creating a design, you should keep in mind that a smaller-sized animation would work best for every type of website and internet connection. This means you may have to tweak and resize your animation's dimensions. Try not to tweak its colors, though and keep the highest setting, which is 256 colors. On the other hand, you can perform a lossy compression and reduce the GIF size without losing its quality.

What is the resolution of a GIF?

It’s best to try and keep your design's resolution no higher than 960 pixels wide. That’s because most GIF files are distributed through direct messaging or shared on social media platforms. Users check their social media accounts mostly on their phones, and thus the animation will appear on small screen sizes. A smaller resolution will increase your animated banner's visibility, but you also want to make sure it loads fast.

How many colors can an animated GIF have?

It can display up to 256 colors. Similar to PNG-8, it supports 8‑bit color but also animations consisting of different frames. Each frame can have a different color palette, with 256 colors per frame. However, there are some workarounds that you can do to end up with an animation that has more than 256 colors.
