I have a few animated gifs taken from films. Generally they are small, but I would like very much to know if they can be resized, without having to do it frame by frame. (I did not create them, nor know what software package was used)

I'm curious, when I open these files with IE preview, I can click on the (+) button, and enlarge the file to almost fit the screen, and the animation stays fresh. Of course, saving it that way is another matter.

Disregarding the file size increase, and possible loss of resolution, can such thing be done...especially for a novice?

thank you in advance for any direction you can provide.

I use photoshop to re-size animations! In photoshop you can open up the second program "Adobe Image Ready", from the "Image" tab you can select "Size" and re-size it to anything you want.

thanks for the reply, kroberts.

unfortunately, I don't have photoshop, but I do use an older adobe product called photo deluxe. I'll see if it might be able to help.

thanks again.

Photoshop is expensive a few hundred bucks, but they have a trial period so try it that way.
