    Just a few questions about Gif. files

    Hey, I've just got a couple questions about when you save things as a gif. After you click save as a gif, a box comes up and it says Merge, Crop, and Palette. And next to it, it says Frame Delay and Shrink Frames By. I don't know what these things are, and what they do. Can somebody help?

    Merge, when ticked, merges duplicate frames, which is bad if you have double framing. You should always untick this.

    Shrink frames, the number in the box is what number the dimensions are divided by, 2 is always a good one.

    I don't know precisely what the others do, and I couldn't explain frame delay, lol.

    for me, the best is:

    Frame Delay: 6
    and
    Shrink Frames: 2

    that would remove the slowness
    This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 600 character limit.

    I'm pretty sure frame delay is how long it takes to go by, like 6 would be 1/6th of a second.

    No, i don't think it would be 1/6th of a second, but 6/100 of a second.

    And thanks so much, Potchi, now my animations are going at perfect speed.
