I was given a nice gif by FileTrekker (because he's a good guy you see) of our good friend, a Sonic the Hedgehog. Now, whenever I try and upload it to an image hoster, the size is reduced to, well, what it is in my signature at the moment. When I try and increase or decrease the size of the file, only, keeping it a gif, the animation doesn't work anymore. Basically, can someone tell me what the hell I'm doing wrong as to why when I increase/decrease the size the animation stops and why for some reason my image hoster (Photobucket.com) reduces the size without my telling it too. I welcome an answer. The gif is supposed to be about 320 x 110 (the one in my signature is the image hosted one). I want to, say double that (that being the original pixel size). I'm aware of possible quality loss, but I'd just like to get it to work at the moment. I really should be in bed now, so I eagerly await any answers in the morning. Thank you.

The local Gallery never in history did such a thing [It's ImageShack host as well] - you could try it just for the reason; every GF member is registered with an account in it, anyway. :) Good luck.
