I want to use this gif. in my signature.
http://min.us/lBgeAqwPQUrpi

But when I try to do that and click "preview" it says it's broken?? Could it be because it's rather big? It's 8MB. Is that's over the size limit for gifs?

Feel free to move this mods. Thanks!

That's way over the size limit. Check this thread for more information about size limits, etc: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=267370

Ok. Is there a way I can reduce the size without resizing it or I guess I can't do that?

It's not displaying because it's not a normal image link. It doesn't end in .gif or whatever. Also, no, it'd be pretty much impossible to take an 8MB gif and turn it into a 1MB gif without losing almost everything.

If you want to try to cut it down, I would first shorten it to just the first part, before it cuts to the view of the man from behind. Then, if it's still too big, you can open it in GIMP or Photoshop and take out individual frames in the middle, so it's less frames per second. This makes it slightly more choppy, but drastically cuts down on filesize. Good luck!

I might do that. Though the gif I have in my signature now is fine. Thanks for the help!
