    Can somebody shrink the size of a gif for me?

    I'm trying to shrink the size of a gif.
    It's currently around 3.8MB and I want it to be under 3 if possible. I've been looking around online and can't really find anything to help.
    I figured there has gotta somebody here who knows much more than me about this!
    This is the gif I need compressed!

    Came in to say I like that gif.



    And that gifs can't be made smaller without losing frames, image quality, picture size, or colors.

    @I_royalty_I I hope this is ok, its a little bit lower quality, but the best I could come up with for you.



    It's roughly 1.98MB

    I thought it was a very interesting gif too but it was too big!

    That's perfect! Thank you!
    What did you use to shrink the file size if you don't mind me asking?

    I used Photoshop but when I imported the gif, I just selected every second frame only. Takes a little away from the animation of it all and reduces the file size, but retains the overall total animation profile
