How To: Change the size of an animated GIF

While the animated GIF file that you see on the right is certainly pretty fu nny, what if we want it as a favicon? Or maybe as a giant, huge picture? Resizing an animated GIF is not as easy as resizing, say, a JPG or PNG image. Typically for a JPG or PNG (or BMP or most other image formats) one can simply throw the image into an image resizer and resize the image easily. For animated GIFs, however, it takes a bit more work. For the purposes of this article, we will teach you how the free, open-source software GIMP can do most of the hard work for us when it comes to resizing animated GIFs.
While this may be the long and wordy method, it’s the most fine-grain method, allowing you to even Photoshop each individual frame. Plus, you never know when you might need GIMP!
