Hello guys,

I want to resize hundred+ animated GIF smilies. I need to:

- convert smile animated GIF to RGB
- resize it (make smaller)
- convert it to indexed color animated GIF

I wonder what software will do it for me (Mac OS X or Windows)?

Also, is it possible to batch the job?

Debabilizer from equilibrium is a cross platform solution that will do this for you.

I also believe that you could set up a batch process in Photoshop that will do this as well.

I wonder if imagemagick will do it as a command line option on the whole directory

Thanks, I will try it.

I have Photoshop CS3, but it seems it can't work with animated GIFs, as it imports only first frame.

I have ImageMagick installed on my Linux server. I wonder how can I resize files in whole directory? Is there any tutorial (I know only CL basics)?

Thanks for the link, but it's actually brakes all my images. When I'm trying to make it with IM without advice of that guy, I get better image, but strange resized (like that guy said).

I will read documents, maybe I'll find something.

Also, I'd like to try Photoshop CS3. I wonder how can I work with animated GIFs in it?

If you are able to run Python... P.I.L. is also nice to use and you can feed it a bunch of files at once.

pil = python imaging library

To batch animated gifs use imageready - the web tool inside photoshop
