    Can someone teach me how to shrink the file size of an animated gif to use for an AV?

    What is the maximum file size for AVs?

    I'd like to optimize this one that I created.

    I'm not sure since we changed it way back when. I can't even see where it would tell me. The one you have now is 506kb if that helps.

    The one I just uploaded was about 900KB. 1MB did not work, so I guess about 900KB or less.

    Sorry I wasn't around to help. I had to take off for a bit. Glad to see you got it sorted out.
