  • Need Help - Photoshop Gif

    I tried to simplified the title as short as it can be. I did not have this problem previously and I am unsure of why it's doing this. I was trying to save my .gif file that I made recently and it keep saving as an optimized color/file. I do not want that, I want it to be the original .gif file that I made as it is.
    I have attached a video file of me saving my .gif file. I am unsure what I'm doing wrong, I save it as accordingly to my default settings. I would like some help if possible, because this is driving me nuts. I searched everywhere and every single one does not answer my problem.

    My version of Photoshop is CS6 (64-bit). I'm using a Windows 10 PC.

      That's because as a general rule, GIFs are optimized to display 256 colors. There are some convoluted hacks if you look around online for saving more than the default. But, if you want more colors, why not simply use another format such as PNG24 which supports millions of colors. Or even JPEG.

        I wanted to save it as an animation file. I didn't have any problem with this way before. But so I just save it as image file and then resave it as a animation?

          You can do a web search for "animated gifs with more than 256 colors", or "true color animated gifs" online. But for the most part there doesn't appear to be any easy or quick way around the limitation.

            I like that you are answering the 'why' questions. Why is the text background red, why are you using the crumbled paper texture etc.
