Portraits are not easy to paint from imagination. They’re not only about anatomy, but about the spirit of the person hidden in the facial features and the expression.

How to Compress Animated GIF Files Without Losing Image Quality

Animated GIFs, more than any other digital image format, have become ingrained in online culture. JPEGs are more or less a continuation of traditional photography, but GIFs are something new and powerful. Widespread broadband has led to video streaming in the last decade but, before that, the only way to easily share moving images was using GIFs.

GIFs have moved beyond a primitive, soundless video format. With the success of sites like Tumblr and Reddit, they’re an art form in themselves. Reaction GIFs are some of the most popular memes.

The GIF format, however, is not as good at compression as JPEG or PNG. The only reason GIFs continue to be so successful is that the format allows animation. Creating a compressed GIF with good detail, then, requires some thought. Most GIFs you see online are either ludicrously large files or horribly compressed.

Let’s look at how to compress animated GIFs without crushing them.
