    You can delete frames or optimize the colors! (You can also do this on ezgif!)

    and now it's small enough to save as your dp~

    I think maybe teaching how to delete frames and stuff is important too? Since we only have a 200kb limit size, so people will be able to edit it fully.

    Thank you for the tutorial!

    yes, thank you! that's a good idea! I'll add it in a spoiler in a moment~
    ezgif has options to downsize gifs which is helpful too thankfully

    dont expose me like this
    tbh i'm still a noob at photohshop but once you get the basics everything else comes a lot more easy~

    awesome tutorial! what i usually do to resize my stills is a little faster, i think: i copy paste the full image i want into a new ps canvas, use the crop tool while i'm holding down shift to crop it into a square, go to image->resize->resize image and put in 120x120 px, and then add smart sharpen. it gives you the same result as aesthete's tutorial but may be a bit quicker for people in a rush, and it's translatable to all ps versions! also, thank you for the gif help bby <3

    same fam, my laptop's graphic card is a piece of cardboard and can't handle PS so I've been playing around with ezgif too /sehunjam but deleting frames and compression options are kinda limited there tbh, it's either you shave just a bit of the data or a lot and I haven't figured out any way to work around that

    I'm sorry, I'm not sure since I don't have that photoshop myself :(
    I checked out this tutorial so maybe you could refer to that if you're trying to make an icon?
