How come whenever I create a small gif for my site, I end up with a 48k or more file!

What are the complete dimensions of the .gif files you are creating? Consider shrinking them by 35% or so - - smaller dimensions are often MUCH smaller file sizes.

Edit: Search Google for "gif optimizer" and you'll find several that can help reduce file size by reducing colors, etc.

Thanks for that info. The gifs that I have created are the same size as the original osc gifs. For instance I'm creating custom buttons and I want them the same size as the osc buttons. I'll look up gif optimizer. Thanks for your help! I appreciate it. -Jason-

Post a picture of one.

Just between us, remember there are only 10 kinds of people in the world; those who understand binary and those who don't!!

 

Remember, learning is a "do-it-yourself" experience; although, not necessarily a "do-it-BY-yourself" experience.

 

The quickest way to learn is to forget to BACKUP!

I figured it out. It's the weirdest thing. In Photoshop if you save a gif under "save as" it will save it as a pretty big file. In this case, the button would have been 52k. If you save that same file under "save for web" the same gif file is only 4k. They're both saved as gif's from the original file. One's 52k and one's 4k. Go figure. Thanks for all your help!! -Jason-
